  • An incredible incredible experience true wonder of the world, but takes a lot of effort to get there. You will need strong walking shoes a 4X4 and a local guide. Take water with you. Best to leave early as it does get pretty hot. A hat and sun screen a must. Dont forget the camera. Bird life amazing. You will be joining the cows on their morning grazing
  • Waterfall Bluff is one of seven waterfalls in the walls that literally drops, not flow gently, falls/drops into the ocean. What makes this place more amazing and a great experience is the fact that you have to park your 4x4 across the lagoon, take only the clothes, toiletries and food you need and walk through the lagoon to the wood cabins. There are locals that can help carry for a small fee. No cellphone reception means that everyone chat and cook together. Keep your belongings safe in the cabbins or on you, one person in our group 'lost' his wallet which was in the cabin the whole time and it miraculously appeared after we left. Worth going!!!!!
