Where are the Raleighfalls?
On the Coppenamerivier lays the 78.000 acres nature park Raleighfalls-Voltzberg at 170 km distance from Paramaribo. This is a nature park since 1961. The vegetation at the Raleigh falls is mostly tropical rainforest trees, like almost 80% of the Suriname’s forest.
In this nature park there are almost 350 different bird’s localized. For those whom are monkey lovers, here you’ll find all 8 monkeys which we have here in Suriname.
This unique nature park is placed on the Unesco World Heritage list.
What will we be doing at the Raleighfalls?
We leave Paramaribo by bus for a 4.5 hour drive to Witagron. There a dugout canoe awaits us and takes us up the Coppename river to Fungu Island, where our accommodation is for the coming days. We take some time to relax of your journey to the Raleigh falls.
After lunch we’ll visit the Manarie falls. Here you can enjoy a relaxing back massage of the waterfall. It is possible that the scheduled tour may change due to extreme dryness of the waterfall. In this case we can go swim near the island or in the rapids. In the evening you can relax.
Depending on the tour you booked, we will be sleeping in a hammock, private room or shared bedrooms and sanitation.
Day 2 after breakfast we’ll climb to the Votzberg (240m) and enjoy the scenery. After lunch we’ll relax in the Anjumara falls.
Day 3 we walk around Fungu Island and after lunch we’ll visit the impressive water rapids and one of the sand beaches. In the afternoon we’ll have time to see the flying Parrots and Toucan’s.
