Nasolot National Reserve

Beautiful and rugged, the Nasolot Reserve is located to the north of Mount Melo. The reserve is quite remote which means few visitors and a chance to be at one with nature in the seemingly endless plains within its borders.  Visitors to this paradise can enjoy spectacular views from Nasolot Hill, bird watching, camping, fishing and nature walks.
