Full description

Rau Forest nature Walk (One Trip One Tree). Explore a natural African forest reserve in which several cultural tourism activities are allowed. You will be exposed to an abundance of nature covered by unique tree species. On your walk you will spot blue monkeys and black-and-white Colobus monkeys and a number of forest bird species and butterflies. Listen to the guide’s stories and get to know the uses of various trees including the very old trees spanning up to 200 years. Visit the sacred tree Mvule (Milicia excelsa) believed to be 196 years old regularly visited by locals to prey for different needs. Enjoy the great view of rice plantations dotted with water birds of different colors at the skirts of the forest and the coconut-drink offered by one of our local farmers. If the weather permits, you will get to see Mt. Kilimanjaro. After having eaten a delicious lunch prepared by our local women we invite you to enrich your forest nature walk with the experience of tree planting. By collecting seeds and planting a seedling in our tree nursery you contribute to our purpose of protecting and conserving the wonderful Rau Forest. And back home you will know that "your tree" is growing and helping us fight the climate change.
