During this one day hike you will explore a lush green African forest reserve where you will be exposed to an abundance of nature covered by unique tree species.
You will have a chance of spotting blue monkeys and black-and-white Colobus monkeys and a number of forest bird species and butterflies. There are a couple of very old trees spanning up to 200 years. Among them is the sacred tree Mvule (Milicia excelsa) that is believed to be 196 years old.
Once coming out of the forest you can enjoy stunning views of rice plantations dotted with water birds of different colors. We will stop for a refreshing coconut-drink offered by one of our local farmers. If the weather permits, you will have a chance to see Mt. Kilimanjaro.
We will enjoy a traditional homemade lunch prepared by our local women. In Tanzania, we often eat beans, ugali, rice, chapatti, vegetable stews, and more. After our lunch break, we invite you to enrich your forest nature walk by planting your own tree. 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 climate change.More information
