Steven was a great guide and showed us and explained a lot about the fauna and wildlife. We saw monkeys, birds and termite builds. The view from the plateau is fantastic. The ascent is sometimes strenuous and requires a certain level of fitness, but it is only a short distance. The flies are annoying everywhere, so light long trousers are advisable.

Our hike had to be postponed at short notice because the guide fell ill and no replacement could be found. The contact was very friendly and we got an alternative date. As a result, we even had a private tour with just our guide Fabrice. He explained everything to us very well, showed us the most beautiful corners and entertained us. It was a successful tour.

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.
