Over 8000 plant species have been discovered in the rainforest of Africa. These plants have adapted to the rainforest environment which is very humid, dark and receives a lot of rain.

During the months of June to November light clothing can be worn during the day and a light jacket at night. Please bring long-sleeve shirts because it’s good protection against mosquitoes at night around the campfire. Do not forget your pair of well-worn boots, a hat and sunscreen.
