It takes 3-4 hours. After tracking, you will have lunch and after lunch visit the Batwa who will demonstrate the techniques of hunting, gathering honey and medicinal plants. They will also demonstrate how to make bamboo cups. Guests are invited to the sacred Garama Cave, once a refuge for the Batwa, where the women of the community perform a sorrowful song which echoes eerily around the depths of the dark cave, and leaves guests with a moving sense of the richness of this fading culture.
