A 12,000 hectare nature park Brownsberg that is located approximately 130 km south of Paramaribo and west of the Van Blommestein reservoir.
On this day trip you will get to know a large part of the range of flora and fauna that the Surinamese pristine rainforest has to offer in just 1 day. Perhaps, to the loud roar of the monkeys, you will take walks to idyllic waterfalls and mountain streams and enjoy magnificent views over the tropical rainforest and the Brokopondo reservoir.
This park is highly regarded for its enormous Biodiversity. There are almost 1450 different species of plants and around 350 species of birds. He who listens carefully hears a monkey; If you pay close attention, you can even see one swinging!
In Suriname we have 8 different species of monkeys. Brownsberg is the “home” for all the 8 different type of monkeys!
At 500 meters altitude lies the Mazaroni plateau with a unique view over the mountains and the Van Blommenstein reservoir.
The nature park serves as a center for nature education and public awareness of nature conservation. The view of the mountains with its imposing foliage looks like a painting with many shades of green.
A good physical condition is required for the hike to the waterfalls.
