Zala Park/Bird Watching
Zala Park, a close by area, is the habitat of endangered species of the island. Mohammed, the keeper of the garden, will explain to you that this environment has been created for pythons, lizards, crabs, turtles, dik diks/tiny gazelles and hyraxes/rock rabbits cause they have been eaten by locals out of fear and religious reason. And here, they live in peace. After a 15 minutes of walk from Zala Park through mellow tropical heavy scenting woods one reaches the shore and crosses over by boat to an island, half an hour away. An astounishing variety of birdlife will welcome you. Feels like heaven on earth when they fly over your head easy enough to reach out and touch them.
