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.
