We will take another adventurous eco-friendly trip on Funzi Island to spot the Aquatic giant – The Nile Crocodile also found in this coastal river that is within the impenetrable Mangrove forest! The Ramisi River, which empties into Funzi Bay, is home to quite a few Nile crocodiles. While these are originally sweet water dwellers, they have developed tolerance to brackish water. They are shy animals, except when they are on the hunt! As we make our way deeper into Ramisi River, the impenetrable mangrove forest on both river banks come closer and closer together until they almost touch! Mangroves are saline tolerant trees that grow in many tropical habitats and there are about nine species of mangroves found in East Africa.Their submerged parts provide a nutrient rich spawning ground for fish and other marine life, while above the water line they offer a virtually impenetrable protective habitat for a large variety of birds.
Due to vigorous conservation efforts, the forests on the South Coast around Bodo are still largely intact even for future generations to enjoy!
