MAFATE TAXI - 4WD transport in the Rivière des Galets
To start or end a hike in the cirque of Mafate, Mafate Taxi offers to transport you in a 4WD along the 12 km that separate the village of Rivière des Galets and the place called "Deux Bras", the point of departure and arrival to many hamlets of the best preserved cirque of Reunion Island.
Mr. Timon embarks his passengers at the checkpoint of the Rivière des Galets, in the rue de la Liberté (take the dirt road on the left, then walk down to the checkpoint), or back from the end of the track at a place called "Deux Bras". In the Rivière des Galets, a watched car park is available for hikers who arrive by car.
The 12 km route goes through fords or portions of river which will delight adults and children. As you start your hike, the 4WD ride is a pleasant transition between civilization and the unspoiled and grandiose nature of Mafate. And, after a good hike, what a pleasure to be transported with your backpacks in the back of the pickup!
Why not plan a day trip for a relaxing moment that combines a 4WD ride, walking, picnicking and swimming in the cool water of the Rivière des Galets? Please note that access to the track is regulated and that authorized vehicles only may enter the cirque.
