You may spot some of those rare butterflies including Acraea aubyni an orange black butterfly that flies slowly. This is about a 45 minute gende walk from the drop off point and one must be accompanied by our naturalist or KWS ranger.

We alight from the vehicle at the sundowner site and walk up a small hill from where you'll watch a spectacular African sunset and the silhouette of the Usambara mountains in the neighboring Tanzania. The resident naturalist takes you through the History of the lodge the park and its inhabitants.
