We did a bike trip through Rau forest. Our guide Daniel was really nice and explained everything well. He was happy and smiley the entire time, which added to our great experience. We admire the social goals of the company for the local environment. They plant lots of trees, take part in preserving the forest, empower local women,… when you choose them you will have an amazing trip and help them help others!

Rau forest is incredible its the largest native urban forest in the world surrounded on all sides by human development. The sanctuary offers a home to the rare colobus monkey and a few keys mammal species. The tour was incredible with the custodians Salehe, Ernest and Khalid. The sanctuary is in danger of development and deforestation. The more visitors they get the more the place will be protected. So please visit.
