Information:

In this beautiful Surinamese resort  alongside the Saramacca river you can camp surrounded by the chirping of hundreds of birds. Because this resort is only 45 minutes away from Paramaribo, a lot of guests change their hotel in town with the busy population and exhaust gasses for the peaceful and beautiful oasis. There is a wonderful big swimmingpool (not chlorinated but with light saline solution), partially roofed for your protection from the sun when you ar at the bar or on the terrace.

The apartments:

Each apartment provides a fully equipped kitchen and a shower with hot and cold water. An overnight stay includes a hearty breakfast with homemade jam, fresh sliced cheese and salami, an egg, yoghurt and petit pains you can prepare yourself in your oven.

 The environment:

On the other side of the Saramacca river you will see the virgin forest with her howler monkeys, small jaguars (tigrikati), toucans and sloths. Would you like to see some animals? Book a seat on our comfortable motorised fishing boat Pikin Gudu. At 6:30 a.m there is a big chance that you will see the squirrel monkeys and the capuchin monkeys from the boat on the shore swinging through the branches, toucans that are cathing the warm morning sun in the tree tops or a manatee that comes up for a moment to cath some Fresh air right next to the boat.
