The video "Hike to the Clouds of Mt Scenery" is more than 20 years old but still the most beautyful and informative ever. It is true that the mountain mahoganies have been damaged in a serious way but the atmosphere is still the same and the trees are covering so there will not be an essential difference when you have reached the altitude of the Elfin Forest. Co-founder of the Saba Conservation Foundation, Tom van 't Hof, and the guide "Crododile James" are both guiding in this tour. Photos of the history of Saba are from the Dutch archives (and not from Will Johnson) and give you also insight in part of the history of the island and the photos of the Marinepark (also founded by Tom van 't Hof) show you another famous aspect of the island Saba. This video has been linked by Dutch Museum Saba on the website www.museum-saba.com because nature will always remain the first attraction for tourists and visitors.

This FoundationDutch Museum Saba is a private initiative in a traditional Saban Cottage
