They will showcase their unique culture and also learn about the herbal medicines they use. Batwa pygmies were hunters and gatherers who depended on the forest for shelter, medicine, and food. Also, visit the Sacred Garama cave which was the spiritual and cultural site. The revenue generated from this activity directly benefits this Batwa pygmies community. Then check into your lodge for Arcadia lodge (B.L.D)
