St Kitts - Rainforest Tour

One of the cruise critic members on the Adventure of the Seas repositioning cruise found a Rainforest Trek with Greg's Safaris: http://gregsafaris.com/

The price was 65$, and we were offered a 10% discount for 6 participants. In the end, there were only three of us, so no discount.

Our guide, Joseph, picked us up at the port and drove us to a batik shop first, which was located in the gardens of Romney Manor. We then drove on to the rain forest. The zip line is located on the edge of the rain forest, so there is some noise associated with the ride. There was another bigger group behind us for a while, who were quite noisy. Joseph asked us if we wanted the easy route, or a more difficult one. Being women of a certain age we opted for the easy route, which took around two hours.

Unfortunately we didn't see any of the small monkeys - they are shy and there was too much noise in the forest.

The walking was moderate, uphill at first. We had to watch our footing, as it was muddy and slippery. Guess who lost her footing near the end and sat down!

When we got back to the landrover Joseph took out some rum punch and guava juice. His niece had made the delicious coconut fudge and cake. There was also fresh starfruit and sugar cane to chew.

It was definitely an excursion worth taking. One magical moment was seeing a humming bird.

Thanks for that Sandra. We'll be on St Kitts in a few weeks and it's certainly an excursion worth thinking about... :think:
