Description

The largest of Suriname’s nature reserves, Central Suriname covers about 12% of the country’s total land mass and 40% of the plants and animals here are to be found only in the Guianas. One of the most beautiful attractions in the reserve is Raleighvallen, Raleigh Falls. It’s a long and low staircase of water that cascades down from the Coppename River. You’ll see spider monkeys, Guiana cock-of-the-rock, electric eels, and spectacular exotic birds. STINASU runs tours here as well and has lodging within the park. If you’re a hiker, you must make your way to Voltzbergisa, a 240m granite dome. It’s a two and half hour steep ascent, but you’ll be rewarded with a 360 degree view of the entire jungle. Not to be missed.
