  • The trip to the logged out from Paramaribo is very long. we reason with a van over 4.5 hours and then still 2 x. We left at 8 am, 4 pm we were at the lodge. Against the sunset to make a beautiful trip to an island where lots of birds go to sleep. You look your eyes out, they come flying thither from all nooks and crannies. The evening meal was delicious but there was not refilled. You is now very basic Ikea on wooden benches or stools. The bedroom is also very basic and in bed is a duvet, way too hot. Small sink with brackish water. Half walls you have so little privacy and hears all of the neighbors (and the rest). The next morning we have another trip, but that we actually found more of the same. Furthermore, there is very little to do, luckily we had cosy people during our stay. During our stay a lot of mosquitoes. There is no alcohol on sale, that you can do in advance in a supermarket. All in all, we found the trip (the next day so back to Paramaribo) it really not worth it.

  • Beautiful nature reserve where you can spot the most extraordinary birds. Highly recommended for a two day trip from the city ... during our trip just about seen everything there is to see fell on bird area (on Bigi Pan). Red ibises, white ibises, flamingos, great diversity of large birds of prey. Very good value for money.
