Welcome to Palumeu.
A welcome drink and cake on arrival is almost a guarantee for a good start of your trip.
In the morning at 6.30, hot water is ready on your veranda - for your coffee and tea which are already in your room. Don't forget we're middle in the jungle - the jewel of the jungle.
|Breakfast at no men's island|
On our first day we had lunch in the jungle - at Palawa island.
Swimming in the Tapanahony river is quite an experience. On the next day - we had marvelous breakfast - on "everyone's or no men's island".
After breakfast we were ready for our forest and hiking tour to Poti- Hill. On our 2 hour walk there is so much to see and to hear.

On our last day - the tour to the village Palumeu
From local cabins, to the school, meeting point we came to a mobile souvenir selling place.
After a final lunch and with mixed feelings, we had to say goodbye to The best tour guide ever, Elton, with his super team Espanjo, Jaka, Jack, Nick and a lot of background workers. They have done their utmost for us - to have this experience of a life-time. The food was tasty. To eat roti in the interior was a complete surprise.
I enjoyed our guides, the food and all other guests, from Belgium: Loes, Hanna, Brecht and Lien, from Holland: Hans, Naresha en Gerrie. We almost became family. We did not only had an awesome trip - WE HAD A TRIP OF A LIFE-TIME.
