Makasutu Park

That’s a national park south of Kotu Beach, where I am staying. You must have a guide there who explains the forest, and points out eucalyptus trees (quite unlike those in Australia and North America), incense trees with burnable sap, giant termite hills, gibbons, and more. Some of the trees ans ahrubs have vicious thorns.

Lots of variety and quite beautiful; at one point the area waa scheduled for clearing and construction which would have been a shame. The tour ended with a boat trip through the mangroves. There are “oysters” (actually small white mussels) on the mangrove roots that are harvested and (French readers please skip ahead) boiled.
