Suriname is developing further as a sports fishing nation. It is also not surprising. Exercise your hobby in an adventurous environment, that is what you do in Suriname. It is a true paradise for anglers who do not want to shy away from a challenge.
Where are we going?
In the district of Sipaliwini (Suriname, South America), the airstrip Kayser (SMKE) is located on the Zuidrivier. This is the southern boundary of the Central Suriname Nature Reserve (Central Suriname Reserve). This Airstrip was built during operation Grasshopper in 1959 and is named after vice-admiral C.C. Kayser. He has guided several expeditions that have led to the discovery and unfolding of many treasures that Suriname has to offer.
Where do we stay?
The airstrip Kayser has 4 small houses. One of the cottages has been converted into a guest house with a beautiful dining room, kitchen, showers, toilets with running water. There are 8 beds for guests. Hammocks are available for larger groups. All other camps on the Zuidrivier are all equipped with basic facilities where hammocks or tents are used. Solar energy available at the airstrip.
