(visited by Eric Cavaloc and Christophe Stevens)

09-Oct-2005 -- As we were working for a technical support mission in the Ghana Rubber Estate Limited close to the DCP 5N 2W, we decided to reach it on Sunday morning, between two huge rains. We left the macadam road to cross a small village and followed a small trail with our car. After a couple of kilometres, we turned left and stopped near a cassava plantation.

Then we entered the bush with a bushknife; we arrived near another cassava plantation, then bush again, then we crossed a palm tree plantation following a small path and went down to a small valley along a young rubber tree planting. We crossed a swampy palm tree plantation to reach a bushy place where the DCP 5N 2W is located.
