Of course, there are many more animals to see! This trip is all-in, meaning it includes transport, food and drinks, accommodation and a guide.

Itinerary

DAY 1

In the morning we will leave the city around 8 am and head to the Fredberg where we will arrive at noon at the base camp. Here we will relax, explore the area and have lunch. In the afternoon we leave for the top of the mountain. This walk takes about 2 to 3 hours and on the way the guide will tell you everything about the area and hopefully we will spot some amazing animals too! Once on top of the mountain we can enjoy a beautiful sunset. From the top we may see monkeys, macaws and other birds flying by. At the top there is a hammock camp (with hammocks) where we stay the night.
