What you'll do

I'll take you on a tour through the Pui O Wetlands to explore the water buffaloes’ habitats. Almost certainly you’ll get to see these magnificent animals fairly close up. During our observation, we’ll go into more detail about the animal’s biology and history of the water buffaloes in Hong Kong. Moreover, you’ll gain insight into the ecosystem and the challenges it’s facing with its inhabitants. Of course, we can have open discussions and share our ideas on how to protect this unique environment. You’ll also take home a free Lantau Water Buffalo photography book.
Other things to note
There's not much shade around, so in the summer it will get very hot.

I've been active in the protection of cattle for about 13 years and consider myself an environmental activist by heart. Working in environmental education for 7 years on Lantau Island has been very meaningful to me, particularly in the area of teaching about water buffaloes in their habitat.

I have always enjoyed seeing the water buffalos on Lantau and was intrigued by the chance to learn more about them. The tour with Dina was great - she obviously cares deeply about the animals and their welfare and is passionate about sharing that knowledge. Highly recommend!

It was an extraordinary experience. My friend Niki and I brought our 16 month old toddlers with us. We carried them during this tour. It’s a blessing to have Dina as our tour guide. We’ve learned so many interesting things about the history of Mui Wo and the water buffaloes. Truly amazing & educational experience for us and our kids. Highly recommended! We’d love to come back to learn more about permaculture farming from Dina in the near future!

For me personally, Dina's perception of the nature is a bit different, she can let you see the world from a different perspective. I think it's meaningful especially for children, that can help them understand the world and think about the world from more perspective .

We really enjoyed this experience. Dina was very knowledgeable and was able to answer any questions I had. I learnt a lot about the water buffalos and the area during this tour. Highly recommend!
