Elephants often walk right through the village, especially at night!

In the mornings the fishermen bring in their catch and the banks of the river in front of the village come alive with activity as the fish are sorted. You will have the chance to observe and even choose your own fish for lunch! There will be a village tour, and in the afternoon a dug – out canoe safari on the great Kilombero River. No trip to Kilombero is complete without a visit to a local village bar!
