Day 1: Danpaati River Lodge – Kosindo River Lodge
You will travel by boat (a local boat called “Korjaal”), heading south towards Kosindo River Lodge. The real adventure starts after passing the Tapawatra rapids. You may have to exit the boat several times & maybe even help lift the boat in order for it to pass through the numerous obstacles in the water. Teamwork is of utmost importance if you want to survive to see the next day. Adventurous? Yes. But nobody said it had to be easy! Your end destination for the day is Kosindo River Lodge, which is centered right next the Maroon-village Kajana, which you will also be visiting.
Day 2: Kosindo River Lodge – Senteadam
Today your adventure begins with a view of nature in its purest form. You will travel about 80 kilometers upstream, even deeper into the Amazon Rain Forest, there you will find Senteadam. There is a bush-camp on an island close by powerful rapids in the Gran Rio. Here you have a high probability of spotting diverse monkey types, the harpy eagle and even a few jaguars. You will spend the night in the sleeping area, in a hammock, with a warm blanket and a special mosquito net. Right next to the sleeping area we have the kitchen, where the meals will be prepared.
Day 3: Senteadam – Kosindo River Lodge
Right after breakfast, you will go for a small hike in the primary rain forest. The way back downstream will partly be done without a motor. Now you can enjoy the sounds of the jungle and maybe even hear the red-footed falcon along the shore. Along the way back you will stop to cool down in one of the calmer rapids, which are said to have healing properties, before arriving back at Kosindo River Lodge.
Dag 4: Kosindo River Lodge – Danpaati River Lodge/ Paramaribo
Today you may choose to head back to Danpaati River Lodge, where you can rest & relax, maybe even get a soothing massage before heading back to Paramaribo. You may also choose to travel from Kosindo back to Paramaribo by plane.
