Program for Awarradam to experience the Maroon culture and fly over the Amazon jungle

The locals pronounce the name as “Awaa dan”. “Awaa” (Awara) is an orange, edible palm fruit and ” dan” means rapid. Awarradam is located in the Gran Rio River, on a small island half an hour away from the inhabited world of Saramaccans, the largest Maroon community in Suriname. Awarradam is the perfect place for wonderful walks through the jungle, to ‘float’ in the river or to relax against the rocks of the rapids.

Day 1: In the morning you will arrive at the airport Zorg en Hoop in Paramaribo at 10.00 o’clock with a taxi (at your own expense). Around 11.00 o’clock you will fly approximately 1/2 hour from Paramaribo to Awarradam lodge located on the Gran Rio River. 

Day 2: Today you will sail on the river along rapids. During the jungle walk the guide will tell you about the flora and fauna in the rainforest, he will also show you traditional plants that are used to cure diseases. 

Day 3: In the morning you will visit a maroon village that is located nearby the lodge where the Saramacca tribe live. Here you will get an idea about the maroon culture and how they are living in their traditional habitat. You can also support local art and buy their handmade souvenirs.

Day 4: After lunch, you will say goodbye to Awarradam and fly back to Paramaribo. At Zorg en Hoop Airport you can take a  taxi back to your hotel at your own expense.
