General info

    Raleighvallen Nature Reserve
    This nature reserve has an area of 78,170 ha and is situated along the Coppename River. It can be reached by by car/bus (120 mi) to be followed by a 3-4 hour boat ride. The reserve headquarters and the tourist lodges are located on Fungo Island in the middle of the Coppename River.
    Raleighvallen (Raleigh Falls) is the name for the extensive set of rapids near Fungo Island in the upper Coppename River.
    The reserve is internationally known as a bird and monkey paradise. You will see toucans, macaws and parrots and 400 other species. Hanging from the tree branches on and around Fungo Island you will notice the pendulum-shaped nests of the weaver birds (oropendulas) which are large, colonial nesting birds with yellow outer feathers. These nests can be close to a meter long.
    Another interesting feature is the Voltzberg. This granite sugarloaf mountain can be reached on foot in about three hours by jungle trail from Foengoe Island. The Voltzberg rises about 150 m (375 ft) above the forest canopy. The night can be spent in a hammock in a simple jungle camp at the base of the mountain. During the night you will be surrounded by the sounds of monkeys, tree frogs, and other creatures from the tropical rainforest.
    The reserve is also the home of the spectacular and rare cock-of-the-rock (Rupicola rupicola).
    There is the possibility, as well, of encountering deer, tortoises, tinamous, and several species of monkey on the 7 km (one-way) hike to the mountain. The trail is good but the damp climate of the rainforest, and the steep climb up the Volzberg, make it a heavy trip, especially for the out-of-shape hiker.


    Day 1
    This reasonably intensive tour starts with the bus trip on the Bosontsluitingsweg to the Kwinti village of Witagron on the Coppename River. Here we use the lunch and go explore the village a bit. After lunch we get into the boat that will transport us to the Fungu island. The boat trip from Witagron to Fungu Island takes between 3 and 4 hours depending on the water level. At arrival at Fungu Island you will be checked in, after which the walk of the island starts and you acquainted with the local guide and the administrator. Today you have the chance to lie relaxed in the bustling rapids, walk with the guide through the rainforest and/or angling, otherwise you are free for the afternoon to fill in yourself.

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 kekemba@kekemba.info met daarin uw gegevens en wij zullen uw trip, tour of binnenlands resort in ons programma opnemen.
