General info

    Blanche Marie falls
    The impressive Blanche Marie waterfalls, located in the Nickerie river, lie more than 300 km southwest of Paramaribo in the Bakhuis mountains. It is one of the largest waterfalls in Suriname with a gigantic displacement of water during the rainy season. The imposing waterfall is stretched over more than 100 meters and is situated in high forest, the most beautiful type of tropical rainforest.
    With the independence of Suriname, the Netherlands pledged to Suriname an amount of then 3 billion Dutch guilders. Of this, 1 billion was spent on building the infrastructure (mainly 100 km of track) to transport bauxite from the Bakhuys mountain range to the Nickerie River. At Apoera, the bauxite would find its way through the newly built port to the wide world. Apoera would become the 2nd city of Suriname. The project was energetic taken in hand. As the project progressed, the enthusiasm became less. More money than ever expected to sit in the project and when it was finished, the bauxite companies like Billiton and Alcoa were not interested. The bauxite price was too low and the bauxite content in the ore was too low. Apoera is a village stayed with the infrastructure of a large port city. The big locomotive is after a few test drives put down and has never driven again.


    Day 1
    From Paramaribo we leave for Zanderij, on the way is stopped if desired for taking pictures and consuming sandwiches and drinks. During the trip there is a chance that you will see different exotic animals such as: monkeys, sloths, deer, turtles, lizards and various bird species: parrots, macaws, trumpet birds, powisies. After Zanderij we pass a number of Indian villages and continue our way to Witagron, a maroon village, where we stop for a visit linked to a lunch break. After this stop we start the second route that takes us across various creeks and bridges through the jungle to Apoera (indigenous village on the western border with Guyana). Here we will stay overnight.
    Day 2
    After breakfast you will visit the railway line from "Somewhere to Nowhere". This railway was built at the time to mine the bauxite reserves in the Bakhuys area. During this visit, the guide will extensively explain the story behind this railway. Then we visit the Indians in the small Kwamala village. Here you can make a village walk and get acquainted with the culture of two indigenous tribes; the Arowakken and the Trio's. They make special souvenirs that can be bought. In the afternoon we make a cruise over the Kaburi creek, known for the beautiful nature and the giant otters that are regularly spotted here and we return to Apoera. After the evening meal there is time for a social gathering.
    Day 3
    After breakfast we leave for the Blanche Marie waterfalls. Along the way you will get information about the flora and fauna and you can see the rapid rapids of the river. In the fall you can sit in some places underneath and enjoy the falling river water and amaze you where all that water comes from. There are also several natural jacuzzis for a delicious massage. Around 1pm it is time for a lunch. We spend the afternoon at the Massage where there is also an opportunity to fish. The evening will be spent at Blanche Marie.
    Day 4
    After breakfast we leave again to Paramaribo, where we are back in Paramaribo in the late afternoon.

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.
