General information

Bus trip
We leave from Paramaribo towards Brownsberg located in the Brokopondo district, and after about an hour's drive we make a stop in the open savannas in the interior of Suriname. During this stop you will be treated to a nice cup of coffee or tea and a sandwich. We immediately take the opportunity to give you some information about the flora and fauna of the area. We also make a stop if you want to buy a hot meal on your own or you can bring your own. That last part of the way is quite bumpy. You may occasionally have to get off the bus. so that the driver can drive up more easily.

Walk to the Leo Fall
When you reach the Brownsberg plateau, prepare for a walk to the Leo Fall. During this fairly intensive hike of about an hour you can enjoy all the flora and fauna that the Surinamese jungle has to offer. The guide looks around carefully so that he can spot as much wild life as possible. During the walk he tells fun facts about nature. When you reach the waterfall you can reward yourself with a cool shower. When everyone has enough energy again, you walk back up the mountain.

Lunch on top of the mountain
Once back on top of the mountain, a delicious lunch awaits you, which you will certainly have earned after the walk. When everyone has finished eating, you can still enjoy the beautiful view over the Brokopondo reservoir. At the end of the afternoon we return to Paramaribo.

Unique photo moments
During this tour you can take plenty of beautiful and unique photos. For example, think of a nice photo under the waterfall. Or take a photo at one of the beautiful viewpoints during the walk to the waterfall. Once you are on top of the mountain, it is certainly a must to take a photo with the beautiful view over the Brokopondo reservoir.
