The night before you can decide with the guide if you want an early wake up at 06h00 for birdwatching (optional, no cost). During this activity we will try to find a number of bird species from this region. After birding we will return to the hotel for breakfast and check out. Then we will move to the area of the Nambillo waterfalls. This waterfalls are born from the precipitation occurring in this region and accumulated by the forest so the water is clean and very pleasant for swimming.
