General info

    Location resort
    The island of Awarradam, about 225 km from Paramaribo, is located near the rapids with the same name. The locals pronounce the name as "Awaadan" . Awaa (Awara) is an orange, edible palm fruit and "dan" means rapid. Awarradam is located in the Gran Rio river, 30 km downstream it merges with the Pikin Rio River. At this point the Upper Suriname river starts and flows 75 km further into the Brokopondo Lake. The river gets its water from the rain. The water level in the dry season can be 6 meters lower than in the rainy season. The plane will take you to Kajana in 50 minutes. The last 10 km you will be transported by canoe. Awarradam is about 20 minutes by boat south of the very last village. You will reach your destination in one and a half hour.

    "Awaadan" is part of the region "Langu". Langu consists of eight villages: Bendiwata, Kuututen, Ligolio, Bëgoon, Kajana, Deboo, Godowata and Stonhuku. Ligolio is a Christian village, the other villages are governed in the traditional way. You can recognize traditional villages by a mooring with a "gate" hanging from palm leaf. This "azanpau" protects the village from evil and outside influences. Each traditional village has a meeting room, a central place of sacrifice and a hut where local women stay a few days during their monthly period. The inhabitants are descendants of Maroons who escaped slavery by fleeing to the interior. The Saramaccans retain much of the culture of their ancestors. This you will also taste during the village tour.
    It is said that the "West African" culture here is more intact than in areas where slaves originally came from (west of Africa). But these villages go along with their time. Kajana has a school and a medical clinic and Ligolio also has a school. The head master of Langu lives in Stonhuku and the area has several regional directors as captains and basjas. Many Saramaccans, especially young men, now work in Paramaribo, in French Guiana or are prospectors . When they visit their village again they bring goods from the city for their family and friends.

    The lodges are built in traditional style with a balcony for a beautiful overlook of the river. The materials come from the forest, so you do not lose the jungle feeling. Each lodge has a separate bedroom with two single beds with mosquito nets and a private toilet and shower with unheated water. For the atmospheric lighting oil lamps are used and solar energy.
    In the indoor recreation room, meals are served. You can also relax in the jungle bar-lounge.

    Stay 3 or 4 nights in Awarradam . The program, which among other things depends on the water level, is as varied as possible. During the trips by canoe we offer you a life jacket, because your safety is our priority. In your free time you can swim in the rapids near the island or a little bit further at "Peti", 2 minutes by canoe. The fixed program includes a walk in the forest, explaining the local use (building materials, medicine) of different plants, walks through several villages and a presentation of local song and dance. The villagers will sell handmade souvenirs. The guide provides more detailed information about the program. You are not required to participate. On your own you can do some hiking, bird watching, fishing, paddling, or go to the agricultural plots. A guide can arrange that for you. As an extra guide and/or facilities are needed, you will be asked a separate fee.
    Some activities may not proceed at too low or even too high water level in the river

Selectie van getoonde tours

Misschien heeft u een trip gezien op internet die u interessant vindt maar niet in bovenstaande lijst staat. De bovenvermelde lijst met tours, trips en resorts is samengesteld naar aanleiding van ervaringen van onze resort-gasten en onze ervaringen met touroperators. U kunt bij ons wel informeren of wij deze tour voor u kunnen boeken.
- Met bepaalde touroperators doen wij geen zaken vanwege slechte uitvoeringen van tours, slechte (soms zelfs onbeschofte) gidsen of het niet netjes afhandelen van klachten over een misgelopen tour.
- Bepaalde tours gaan (bijna) nooit door omdat het minimum aantal deelnemers niet wordt gehaald; deze tours zult u ook niet hierboven aantreffen want niets is frustrerende dan weken op een lijst te staan om uiteindelijk te horen dat een tour niet doorgaat.
- Ook tours met een scheve prijs/prestatieverhouding (oftewel een te dure tour voor het aangebodene volgens onze resort-gasten) hebben wij niet opgenomen.


Misschien bent u een touroperator met een leuke trip, tour of binnenlands resort in uw assortment, maar u ziet uw aanbod niet in bovenlijst vermeld staan. Stuur ons een mail naar met daarin uw gegevens en wij zullen uw trip, tour of binnenlands resort in ons programma opnemen.
