You have the opportunity to go swimming or to relax in the sula. At 19:00 it is time for the evening meal after which you can enjoy the evening.
This day is all about experiencing and impressions. Breakfast is ready at 08:00 and at 09:00 you leave for your first excursion. This takes a few hours so that you are back on the island in time to enjoy lunch.
Then you are free to, perhaps, read a good book or for siesta.
At 16:00 it is time for the next excursion and also lasts a few hours. You will be back in time to freshen up for the evening meal, at 19:00, after which you can prepare for the third excursion, spotting caimans and other nocturnal animals during the nightly boat trip.
With larger groups of visitors there is a dance workshop from the local group Pasensi Uma during the second evening.
On your third day you will go on an excursion to Pikin Slee where you will visit the Saamakka Museum.
This is an open air museum where you will learn more about the Maroon culture, history and traditional and modern art. You will enjoy a delicious lunch prepared with local ingredients and eat just as the locals do.
In the afternoon you are back on the island where you can enjoy your hammock or swim in the sula.
Around 19:00, dinner is ready again, after which you can rest and prepare for the big day where you will travel to our jungle camp to spend the night!
This day is when the great adventure begins! After breakfast at 08:00 you are ready for the departure to our jungle camp. We store your luggage safely in our warehouse. At 09:00 you leave with a guide and his team to our jungle camp. It is a brisk walking tour of a few hours. Upon arrival you can install and you
will experience the jungle as the ancestors of the local residents did. You will be sleeping in a hammock, bathing in the river and cooking on a self-stoked wood fire. The evening is filled, as the locals did, with storytelling around the campfire. The next day you will also have breakfast at 09:00 and after a bit of
relaxation, you will begin your walk back to the pick-up point.
You survived and to your surprise you even slept very well in a hammock! The breakfast was delicious and after the hike of a few hours and the short boat trip, you arrive tired but satisfied on the island. You will receive your luggage back in good condition and can change clothes. Check-out time is at 11:00 and at 11:30 lunch will be ready. At 12:00 you start the return trip to Atjoni where our driver is ready to escort you back to Paramaribo. During this return journey you only make one stopover so that you are back on time at your holiday address, still amazed by your jungle adventure in Upper Suriname!
