The visitors can then transverse through the mangrove airs on the footbridge and discover two mangrove species: Avicennia Marina, pronounced “Afiafy” and “Sonneratia” pronounced Songery”, hence the name of the village Tsongoritelo.
During the replantation season (June-July), visitors can collaborate in the project by pricking out the young mangrove plants
The plantation process for Mangroves
We harvest the seeds that fall from the trees in February.
Then, the seeds are planted in the nurseries and watered everyday, before being replanted in the mangrove reforestation site in July, where the world day of Mangrove is celebrated (26 July).
The participation of this replantation is open to the people from the village as well as the solidarity tourist.
