Entering this area is a step back in time. Remarkably undisturbed, this old-growth forest is representative of the early evergreen tropical hardwood forests of the Bahamas. Located in the southwest portion of New Providence, this area features dramatic sinkholes- unique limestone "caverns" up to 50 feet long, 30 feet wide, and in some cases 30 feet deep. Similar features elsewhere in the Bahamas have provided fossil and sub-fossil remains of Bahamian fauna as well as Lucayan and Bahamian artifacts. The Primeval Forest supports a diverse collection of plant life, as well as various species of wildlife.
