Summer is here

Fairy Forest

Fairy Forest

The summer rains have arrived at last this week in the Bvumba. The Madrugada indiginous forest has been transformed into areas completely covered with fairy ferns.

The twenty metre high Madrugada waterfall is flowing fast once more cascading down the steep rock descent into a lovely pool at the bottom where visitors may paddle and swim at leisure.

For the bird lovers all the summer migrants are back. The magnificent Narina Trogans with their beautiful colours have returned to the forest, and their mating calls can be heard throughout the day. At dawn the melodic, haunting call of the Buff Spotted Flufftails echoes up the valley to the Lodge.The colourful Georgeous Bush Shrike are calling in abundance in the surrounding forest.

If you need a break from the hustle and bustle of the city lifestyle to relax, de-stress and reconnect with nature, Madrugada is the place to come to!
