Several belvederes have been built in the park if you want to have a picnic or just have a rest.
During the trail, stay on the path! Do not forget to take insect repellent and solar cream with you. On the path, you will find signs with the name and descriptions of the species. You can see green species like ebony, tambourissa, sideroxylon…. And also observe birds from the platform that has been placed in the forest to trigger your curiosity.
Some conservation work has been undertaken by the Ministry of Agro Industry and Food Security to eradicate invasive species like goyavier de chine or the ravenal. Reforestation is a long term project!
