Raleigh Falls - Brownsberg - Overbridge - Galibi
ITINERARY

Raleigh Falls forms part of the Central Suriname Nature Reserve. This unique nature reserve is placed on the Unesco "World Heritage" list. The Raleigh Falls Tour consists of 4 adventurous days with the opportunity to participate in various activities such as walks in the forest, a trip to the peak of the Voltzberg, boat trips, relaxing in the rapids, but most of all, enjoy the flora and fauna in the area. Raleigh Falls is known as the bird-paradise of South America and is renowned, worldwide, among ornithologists.

In the early morning hours you will depart on a bus trip (approximately 4 hours) to Witagron, after which the tour will continue by boat, for another 4 hours, to the main island "Foengoe". Foengoe Island has sleeping facilities and functions as the base camp.

Here, you can relax, swim in the refreshing waters of the Coppename River, stroll on the island and the afternoon is an ideal time for bird watching. There are various waterfalls in the vicinity of the island which you can visit. The trip to Voltzberg, a granite rock, approx. 200 meters high, will be an unforgettable adventure. Once at the top, you will view one of the most breathtaking panoramas imaginable, over the treetops of the Amazon rainforest. Chances are that you will see the famous "Cock of the Rock" bird in this area. After this trip, you will return to Paramaribo to start your 3 day tour to Brownsberg (Nature Park) and Overbridge (recreation beach in the savannah).

Brownsberg Nature Park is in the midst of a jungle on the Mazaroni plateau at a height of 500 metres. This 6000 acre Nature Reserve lies at a distance of almost 130 km from Paramaribo and can be reached within 2.5 hours. The Mazaroni plateau offers a spectacular view of the Afobaka power dam. Paths will take you, through the rainforest, to beautiful waterfalls where you will enjoy unexpected panoramas of the far-stretching green treetops of the interior. You will stay at Brownsberg in lodges with rooms for 2 or more people.

After your jungle experience you leave Brownsberg for a 2 hour bus ride to Overbridge. Overbridge is a beach-resort, located alongside the Surinameriver at an hour's driving distance (48 km) from Paramaribo. The rustic cabanas offer comfort unique in the rainforest, with sanitary facilities and modern furniture, amongst other luxuries.

Overbridge is ideal for swimming, relaxation and savannah walks. Your final destination will be Christiaankondre and Langamankondre, in the area known as Galibi. Here there are two traditional Amerindian villages located next to each other along the Marowijne River at the mouth of the Atlantic Ocean. Both villages have a sandy beach, which is ideal for long strolls. These villages were formed after the period of slavery and they extended to rather large Amerindian villages with a population of approximately 750 inhabitants. The most important means of life for the local people is fishery. In the sea-turtle season, from February to August, you will also visit the breeding places where the gigantic sea turtles come each year to lay their eggs.
