Beautiful rainforest. One of the oldest rainforest reserves in the world, crossed by a road. Well worth the trip. Parrots, leaf-cutting ants, colibris, muddy paths and wonderful plants. Bring a guide!

It is a small forest in a small island, but well preserved and managed. We had the chance to see fantastic birds and unique views of the sea from the top of the mountains.

you need gumboots and then you can enjoy the walk through the forest. If you are lucky, you will see a lot of birds.
I recommend this to every body!!

We booked a tour with Newton for the reserve and was collected from Coco Reef promptly at 06.00 am and returned at 13.30. To describe him as passionate about birds doesn't really do him justice. He is absolutely determined that you see everything that the island has to offer. I think if you have no more than a passing interest in our feathered friends, this is definitely not a trip for you, it is hard core bird watching.

We drove up and were quickly accosted by a local guide, which probably wasn't the best way of doing things but worked out well. The waterfalls and plant life were great and our guide was outstanding - reaching in to tree trunks and pulling out snakes etc.! In fact - because he knew we were heading to Charlotteville afterwards he waited about a mile up the road having found a large python whilst driving home. Very good indeed and the other tourists seemed extremely jealous of our guide!
