Discover the fascinating and wildly unique landscapes of the Great South. At the Southern end of the main island, the colour palette changes to red due to the oxidised metal-rich soils of the deep South.
This is a unique opportunity for you to explore the pristine and unspoiled landscape where unique vegetation thrives. You will cross the biggest reservoir of fresh water in the area called "le lac de Yate" or Yate Lake.
Guests will see an amazing and specific kind of scenery, generated by the well known Yate hydrophilic dam: The Drowned forest! Sparsely populated but very large, the town of Yate is not to be missed.
It hosts various natural sites, including mysterious areas, desert-like, almost lunar landscapes. You will take a break with your guide for lunch in front of the lagoon. At the Goro tribal area, you can cool off in summer at the waterfall, and sapphire blue swimming hole at Madeleine Falls, whilst basking in the sea views!
