We loved this activity! Magnificent walk in the reserve, we take full view! Very nice to get around in a buggy, thrills at the meeting. The guide is really very good and took us to the foot of a superb waterfall where we could swim. I recommend!

We booked an “Eco Buggy Tour” in the Heritage Nature Reserve and were very satisfied. The buggy was a lot of fun and our guide Zion explained and showed us a lot about the reserve and the animals and plants living there. Overall highly recommended!
