With their feet on the ground but their ears on the alert, for two hours, nature lovers rush into a world full of startling sounds, each more surprising than the next. Accompanied by a biologist, the explorers discover some of the inhabitants of Grande Cariçaie with their exhilarating songs: tree frogs and ringing toads lurk in the puddles and are not always easy to distinguish. The flora is also part of the adventure.

This excursion takes place in full respect of the natural reserve's rules, in areas with free access to the public. To not disturb the fauna and to facilitate its observation, dogs are not welcomed.
