Day 1: Arrive in Suriname, at the Pengel international airport. A taxi will bring you to the hotel. Dinner is at your own costs.
Day 2: Free day. Lunch and dinner at your own costs. Stroll along the waterside called Waterkant and have a nice Surinamese lunch at Gadri restaurant while enjoying a nice breeze from the river. The restaurant is situated at the back of the National Assembly building.
Day 3: City trip in Paramaribo. Lunch and dinner at your own costs.
Day 4: Around 8.00 am you leave Paramaribo by car and drive to the west side of Suriname, district Nickerie. The driver stops in Groningen, the capital of the district Saramacca. You can view the four monuments which are important for Suriname; the Slavery Abolition, the Civil War, the Boeroes, and the Immigration of the Hindus. In Coronie a sanitary stop is made if necessary and lunch is served. Around 14.00 o’clock, you arrive at the riverside where you get into a traditional canoe. Here you meet your enthusiastic guide, who can show you everything along the road. Via the Nickerie river and the Jamaer canal, you sail towards Bigi Pan. Enjoy the Parwa forests and mangroves along the way. These forests serve as natural protection against erosion and as a breeding ground for young shrimps. At the end of the canal, there is a huge lake, this is Bigi Pan! Houses on stilts are in the water and here you spend the night. The accommodation where you stay is simple. You can choose to sleep in a bed or in a hammock. If you sleep in a hammock, you can see the sunrise over the lake the next morning; this is highly recommended! In the afternoon you can get into the boat to spot caimans, take a mud bath, or go fishing. In the evening you will enjoy dinner together.
Day 5: Not long after the sunrise and after breakfast you step in the boat to spot birds. In the morning you can come quite close to the flamingos (for the perfect picture!) before they fly elsewhere. Many birds spend the winter in Bigi Pan to search for food in the nutrient-rich water. Buzzards, vultures, kingfishers, owls, eagles, woodpeckers, tree patches, and scarlet ibises are just a few examples of the 120 bird species that you can encounter here. When you come back, you can relax in a hammock with a view over the lake. What a wonderful place this is! After lunch, you sail back to Nieuw-Nickerie. This is the second city of Suriname but only has a little more than 13,000 inhabitants. The apartment is located in the city. In the evening after dinner, we will visit a Dijck, called Zeedijk that prevents the sea to take the land and enter a beautiful Hindu temple.
