Variety of mammals use trails close to Otorongo jungle lodge

In the mix of primary and secondary forest just fifty yards to the east of the Otorongo jungle lodge, lies some heavily travelled wildlife trails that for the most part go un noticed to the untrained eye. It is easy to walk into a piece of forest and say there are no animals there just because you do not see them. It is Important though to keep a keen sense of observation to see the trails that stand out before you.
