We decided to head out to Fanie's Island in St. Lucia to do a hike. Spotted a few nice looking crested guinea fowl on the way out of the driveway. These guys look like they have mohicans - very nice looking.

Our hostel gave us directions but neglected to tell us Fanie's Island was closed due to drought! Never mind Charter's Creek was close by and this had some good looking hikes.

We got here only to be told no hiking either due to the reintroduction of elephants! We did however see lots of red duiker, fantastic looking male and female nyala on the drive into the park.

We headed back to the hostel and went to Dumazulu Cultural Village, right next door to our hostel, they had some crocs here that we were told by the hostel were fed at 2pm. This turned out to be 2pm, but Sundays only! Still the 30 odd snakes and crocs there were good enough to give us a few hours of amusement.

The Dumazulu cultural tour was very enjoyable. Lot of Zulu men and women dressed in traditional animal skins. We had a tour around the village visiting people such as the doctor. This was followed by some cool war dances.

Watched the bush babies in the grounds of the hostel that evening.
