Falling Waters Twenty-Two: Réunion and Mauritius

January, 2018

9707C37B-CF06-4AFD-953B-D2D495095007Near the end of a South African and Indian Ocean cruise, we stopped at the islands of Réunion and Mauritius. We really only saw one waterfall on the Island of Réunion, along the road as we traveled from one location to another, and I have no idea of its name, but I’m including it in anyway.

Mauritius, on the other hand, offered a few more opportunities. Black River Gorges National Park is home to Alexandra Falls. This is a lovely waterfall, but is almost overshadowed by the views of the gorge itself.

Not far away is the stunning Chamarel Waterfalls, with a drop of 312 feet over a vertical cliff.

If you’re there, it’s well worth a side trip to stop at Seven Coloured Earths.

We also spent a few days in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. Now, the UAE is a desert country, but in Dubai, if it doesn’t exist naturally, they will build it, hoping you will come. So, the Dubai Mall built The Waterfall, an 80 foot indoor waterfall, in 2008.
