      ... out and explore the area some more. We had read before that the guides from the centre weren’t very helpful in spotting animals and that they were literally just there to make sure we didn’t wander off the trail. We must have had some luck though because our guide, Jusman , was really helpful and chatty. It was good to have someone there with us point out the things that we didn’t even look twice at before, signs of life in the forest. We saw lots of ...
