Kabalebo Nature resort

Departure Tuesday and Saturday

 

In west Suriname, in the middle of our exceptional and uninhabited tropical rainforest, the kabalebo Nature resort was built in 2004. It is a real paradise for nature lovers. Kabalebo is uninhabited, resulting in the remarkable diversity of wildlife such as jaguars, deer and wild pigs. The Kabalebo River has an abundance of ‘Anjumara’ and ‘Red tail catfish’. Flowers, plants and trees contribute to a beautiful decor. Opposite the lodges is Misty Mountain (500m). Near Kabalebo nature resort, there are various birds like the Green Ibis, Toucans, Parrots and Harpy Eagles.
