... small village and, sprayed from head to toe in mozzie repellent, we set off on foot, intrepid travellers that we are, through the thick forest.

This is not an official 'reserve', but is a massive forest that is managed by the local community. Tourists seem to be at a minimum as it's not easy to reach it. We had to pay an entrance tax, which ultimately supports the village. It's in their interest to protect the animals there, ...

... trying to sell us different touristy things in the middle of the road with cars and buses trying to get past.

When we got back to the dock there was a very long line waiting for the tenders fortunately we had an umbrella to give some protection from the sun. While heading back to the ship we noticed that the crew had removed the razor wire from the promenade deck and also, the water cannons and sound devises so I guess we are no longer in danger from the ...
