No reviews, be the first!


Boggy Peak used to be the name of a 1,300-foot hill for hikers and mango farmers in the <a title="Caribbean" href="http://www.viator.com/Caribbean/d4-ttd">Caribbean</a>. On President Obama’s 48th birthday (2009), the peak was renamed “Mount Obama” to honor his achievement in becoming the first Black President of the U.S.

Visitors to <a title="Antigua and Barbuda" href="http://www.viator.com/Antigua-and-Barbuda/d27-ttd">Antigua and Barbuda</a> can have a lovely hike and get lost in the Macaw Palm Trees, Milk Trees, and Maiden Ferns (ah yes, and the Mount Obama White Lonchocarpus) in what is now known as Mount Obama National Park.
