Rainforest Hut in Plantasia now open
Fancy seeing what Native Indian tribes lived in?
The new rainforest hut is made of materials including elephant grass and bamboo and is now open at Swansea's Plantasia attraction in Parc Tawe.
Blowpipes, primitive fishing nets, a traditional hammock and tribal musical instruments are among the features of the indigenous South American hut that's been recreated over 6,000 miles away from the Amazon in Swansea.
Visitors will be greeted by a tribal mask on walking into the hut that's said to protect tribal families and ward off evil spirits. Recordings of tribal singing will be played in the background and images of tribal families will be displayed on the walls.
The Friends of the City of Swansea Botanical Complex have funded the hut's construction.
Normal admission applies.
