A tourist stands at a small hut, paying an park entry fee.

This is a local community managed activity that provides a financial incentive for protecting the Baobab village forest lands and their biodiversity, including endemic bird species. Visitors pay a fee to see the forest with local guides, who have been trained to identify the birds found in the forest.
