Nabukavesi Stream

Meandering Mates Hunt with Bindiya

Join Bindiya on a hunt for critters (little friends to Bindiya!) along the meandering Nabukavesi stream.

A specially designed habitat-organism game will introduce you to the little micro-habitats and the dwellers in the stream as well as the associated fauna. Expect to see juvenile stages of damselflies, dragonflies, caddisflies, mayflies, aquatic moths and more.

These animals have ecological importance and serve as bio-indicators for a healthy stream. All equipment will be provided.

Bring your own food and drinks for a picnic by the 3-tier waterfall at the end of the walk. It’s also a lovely place for swim.

This is a popular trip. Book and pay early to secure a place.
