A guided tour of the magnificent caves, unique to this area of the island is a part of the 2km-long through the reserve. Surrounded by the emerging forest and some very rare plants, you will be able to imagine yourself back in time, with the luxuriant greenery a stark contrast to the rest of the island, a reminder of man's destructive impact on his environment. You can stroll amongst giant tortoises, which were once present in large numbers, see the rare Rodrigues fruit bat and a lot more.
