You will be picked up from your hotel or apartment early in the morning. We depart by bus to Witagron (approximately 3 hours). Where we transfer to a korjaal (wooden boat) for an approximate 2-hour cruise to Raleigh Falls. After this long but very impressive trip, you will arrive at Fungu Island (our sleeping place for the next few nights). Upon arrival on the island, you will be transferred to the Gonini lodge, where you will spend the next few days. The guide will briefly show you around the island. The rest of the day you are free to explore the area or to swim, fish or relax in a hammock. After dinner, the guide will tell you all about the Central Suriname Nature Reserve and the Maroons. We have dinner and spend the night on Fungu Island.
Early in the morning we set off, packed with a lunch box and a flask, to the Voltzberg.
This tour takes about 3 hours. During the hike you will enjoy the beautiful surroundings. After this hike, we rest at the base camp at the foot of the mountain. The trip leads us further to the top of the mountain (about 240 meters). Here you have a great view over the rainforest.
After lunch, we will go to the Anjumara Falls, where you can relax and swim in the river for a while. We dine and spend the night on Fungu Island.
After breakfast, there is time for a refreshing dip in the cool water. Then we prepare ourselves for the departure towards Paramaribo. We get back into the canoe and sail towards Witagron. Here, the bus is ready to take you back to your apartment in Paramaribo.
