ECOTOURISM
FAP can organise visits or tours for large or small groups to (for example) see the hippopotamuses and visit island communities on the lake at Baminjin, or to visit the forests. These visits are organised with the local communities, and give visitors a chance to experience the best that the area has to offer while supporting these communities in sustainable ways.
