The Korup National Park is in western Cameroon against the Nigerian border. It has 1259 sq km of tropical rainforest known for its high biological diversity, including more than 50 species of large mammals. Cameroon.

Iím going to spend 3 days inside the Korup National Park. It should be one of the oldest forests in West Africa. Iím looking forward to see some interesting flora and fauna.

Korup National Park entrance. Cameroon.

Limbe was nice, afternoon zoo visit was pleasure but itís time to move again. My time for Cameroon visit is short and my plan is huge. Early morning after sunshine about 6:30 Iím starting to look for some minibus to the Korup National Park.

Tea picker. Tea plantations around Munnar town, Kerala. India.

I was thinking several times how tea leaves are cut. Now when I visited tea plantations at Munnar at South India I had a chance to observe this practice.

Fire dance. Bali,  Indonesia.

Indonesia is great country for visit. It is very rich for traditional culture and nature too. Differences among islands are something which makes Indonesia unique.

If you are visiting Indian state Kerala you have to see this incredible fishing technique. Large spiderlike structures with huge nets are used for fishing at shallow waters.
