A tour to the Batwa or pygmy, an indigenous people whom have sadly had to relocate from their traditional life in the forest and diversified in welcoming visitors and sharing their culture.

I did the wildlife and spice island tour. I hade a wonderful experience with the group and our awesome guide Nash. We saw the Big Five within the first 2 weeks and my time with the gorillas was amazing!!!
I had such a great time I wish I could have stayed longer and continued down with everyone else.
I definitely recommend people going on this tour.

We had a very diverse group group consistent of 9 different nationalities from 16-69 years of age. And everyone had a great time. There were optionals that suited everyone depending on what you like.

The food the we cooked with some help from Nash was amazing. We ate so much and sometimes when there were left overs we used that for lunch.

I plan to come back and continuing down with absolute in a few years!
