History


Description

The Ana Pe'ape'a (Swiftlet Hole) is located in the O Le Pupu-Pue National Park. It is a 1 hour walk to the cave through rain forest, it is recommended to hire a guide, as tourists tend to get lost. The cave was named after the birds which sing from its depths, despite the nice sounding name Pe'ape'a just a sort of swallows. Actually there are numerous caves with this name on Samoa, as swiftlets live in almost any cave of the islands.
