Tour Details

Rau Forest gives you an opportunity to explore a true African forest reserve, which not only presents an abundance of nature but also boasts of a number of unique tree species and allows you to take part in several cultural tourism activities.

On your walk, you will spot blue monkeys and black-and-white colobus monkeys, and a number of bird species. Listen to stories and discover various uses of the different trees found in the area. See trees that are as old as 200 years. Visit the sacred tree Mvule (Milicia excelsa), believed to be 196 years old, a tree that is regularly visited by locals to pray (an act closely associated with superstitions).

Outside the forest, you can also enjoy a great view of rice plantations that are dotted with colorful water birds.

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.
