More than orchids

Orchid hunting is not all about finding the most interesting, rarest and amazing orchids.  It’s an opportunity to immerse myself in the bush, and relax.  There are many beautiful things to see and enjoy.  Recently I saw this Egret with its mating plumage.


The bush has many beautiful and amazing areas that are such a pleasure to see.  Below are a few pictures of the patterns created by the trees.

Orchids are beautiful but there are so many other surprises in the bush that are waiting to be found.

      There are orchids flowing almost any time of the year. However the peak of the season is September/October. If you do come try to get in touch with the local orchid Club as they will be able to show you where they are. Hope you are able to make it here one day!
