  • I went as a group to the discovery of the swamps of Kaw. The tour was generally satisfactory. We had clear explanations of the guides by observing birds. We have unfortunately not seen in Cayman, but it will be for next time, when we will decide to spend the night on the spot...

  • It is difficult to ignore in the swamps of Kaw when it comes to French Guiana. And I'm on my 3rd visit, although it is quite expensive. Departure from the gradient of the swamps of Kaw, around 18: 00. Sunset on the end, perfect weather. Quiet impressive in this huge nature reserve, located about 100 km from Cayenne, at the mouth of the approved. Birds, howler monkeys. The canoe slowly slides into Kaw. Plenty black caimans are rare, too accustomed to the flashlights of the tourists. Zebus on the banks watching us. And we come to Kaw at the restaurant 'ginger syrup'. juice, punch, quack, fish caught, seeming to come from prehistoric times, excellent so well cleaned side scales. Friendly staff. Quick tour of the village, with its 30 inhabitants who do move in a pirogue. I hope to return once again. I day, that's fine too. provide a rain coat, you never know? but he can only do hot.

  • Visit the swamps of kaw in dry season super nice! Walk on a pirogue with explanations by the "guide" on the flora and fauna surrounding us. Break to visit the typical village of kaw and at night you can see very closely the Caymans or even touch them if you want avoid to visit the full Moon days, Cayman we see coming away with our canoe; a little more difficult to observe them so to do.
