    Our tour guide let us choose between 2 ways. We opted for the somewhat impassable variant with beautiful vantage points. It was a nice shady climb of about 250 meters altitude. On the way we could observe countless fruit bats and monkeys. The crowning glory in the beautiful nature reserve was a dip in the cool clear Black River.

    Unsere Wanderung musste kurzfristig verschoben werden, da der Guide krank geworden ist und kein Ersatz gefunden wurde. Der Kontakt war sehr freundlich und wir haben einen Ersatztermin bekommen. Dadurch hatten wir sogar eine Privattour nur mit unserem Guide Fabrice. Er hat uns alles super erklärt, die schönsten Ecken gezeigt und gut unterhalten. Es war eine gelungene Tour.

    Very good guide with great commitment. However, would like to add that the hike takes place in uphill terrain over "log and stone" so the hike requires good physical shape and good shoes.
