Gran Rio Jungle Expedition - 5 Days

Gran-Rio-Jungle-Expeditie

An expedition to the virgin Amazon forest across the Gran Rio River is an absolute experience for the nature lover who likes to take on a challenge! It starts with the one hour flight to Jungle Lodge Awarradam, which offers you a magnificent view over the virgin tropical rainforest of Suriname.

During the korjaal trip from Jungle Lodge Awarradam to the base camp you will pass numerous spectacular rapids. The beautiful and spicy jungle treks are richly rewarded with a breathtaking panorama over the Amazon rainforest. Far away from civilization, you will enjoy the overwhelming flora and fauna on this tour. The Gran Rio Jungle Expedition is a real must for adventurers and nature lovers!

Day 1

Our jungle adventure starts at Zorg & Hoop airport, where we check in for the flight of about an hour, to Kajana airport on the Gran-Rio River. Then we sail in a canoe for half an hour to the Awarradam Jungle Lodge. Here the forage and our local escorts will come on board and you will continue on the Gran Rio River. A beautiful cruise of about 3 hours upstream will take you to the beautifully situated base camp, where we will sleep in hammocks for three nights. After settling in, we explore the area while the cook prepares our evening meal. After dinner we discuss the route for the next day; our first trip in the virgin Amazon forest.

Day 2

A 4 km (one way) long trail through primary forest takes us to our destination for today, the Logoso-kun, Saramaccan for Turtle Hill. Three hills along the way make the walk nice and spicy. The terminus is located at an altitude of 310 meters, offers a beautiful view of the surrounding forest and is named after the turtle that was discovered when the site was discovered. In the afternoon we return to our base camp and can fully enjoy the cooling river with its rapids. Our local guides will be happy to take you up the river to catch fish in the traditional way.

Day 3

Several hiking destinations are possible for this day. Gangasa-sitonu is a beautiful, overhanging large stone that lies somewhere in the middle of the jungle. The walk there is not that far (2.5km), so there is more time to pay attention to local flora and fauna. About the same distance as the yesterday visited Logosokun (4.1 km) is the Folokun, Saramaccan for flower hill. This is a slightly lower viewpoint, but the area you arrive at is a bit larger, so you can walk around a bit. It is decided in consultation which destination will be served. At sunset we drift with the korjaal. This is the right time of day for spotting animals. In good weather we make a campfire and listen to the stories of our escorts, who will gladly tell you how important this environment was for the Saramaccans from the first hour.

At sunset we drift with the korjaal. This is the right time of day for spotting animals. In good weather we make a campfire and listen to the stories of our escorts, who will gladly tell you how important this environment was for the Saramaccans from the first hour. For this day, several hiking destinations are possible. Gangasa-sitonu is a beautiful, overhanging large stone that lies somewhere in the middle of the jungle. The walk there is not that far (2.5km), so there is more time to pay attention to local flora and fauna. About the same distance as the yesterday visited Logosokun (4.1 km) is the Folokun, Saramaccan for flower hill. This is a slightly lower viewpoint, but the area you arrive at is a bit larger, so you can walk around a bit. It is decided in consultation which destination will be served.

Day 4

After a late breakfast we prepare for our cruise back to Awarradam, where the last night will be spent. Along the way we let ourselves drift and can fully enjoy the flora and fauna of this pristine forest. Late in the afternoon we arrive at Awarradam Jungle Lodge, where we will spend the night in traditionally built huts. After such an exciting trip, a visit to the local Jungle Spa is a must, and the bed and well-stocked bar will certainly feel luxurious!

Day 5

At Awarradam we can relax after breakfast in the rapids and explore the island. We say goodbye to our local friends before we leave for Kajana airport for the return flight to Paramaribo.
