About this trip


A large part of the natural wealth that Suriname possesses has disappeared in and around our capital Paramaribo. But a stone's throw from Paramaribo, the power of nature has overcome human influences in the former Peperpot plantation. The plantation with its coffee trees, the Kofi mamas (shade trees), the drainage canals, the locks, in short, everything that has been shaped by people for generations has now become the stage for nature.  

The Peperpot Nature Forest Foundation manages the Peperpot Nature Park and the Peperpot Nature Forest. The area is 820 ha and consists of three areas:
1) a forest corridor (706 ha),
2)a buffer zone around the forest corridor (32 ha), and
3)a visitor park (80.89 ha of which 26.89 ha is already in use ).

The Foundation was established in 2009 with the aim of protecting natural biodiversity and preserving parts of the former plantation as cultural heritage.
This is the place where we will enjoy a beautiful Kayak trip, and try to spot amazing wildlife.

Day 1
Peperpot Kayak (night) tour

We will meet at 4:30 PM at Boutique Hotel Peperpot. From there we canoe through the Peperpot Nature park in daylight and the guide will tell you all about the flora and fauna of the area. Around sunset we will be at the bird tower for a short break and as soon as it has become dark we will hike a bit and then sail back the same way. The world now looks very different and we can discover other animals than during the day! The tour ends back at Boutique hotel Peperpot around 10:30 PM.

We recommend wearing boots as the paths will get muddy during rainy season.

The trip was organized with some different parts and with different people/guides. You never know what to expect, but this time we were amazed by the well planned organization and communication! It all came together with a near-perfect timing and we were in the capable hands of the next person. Even with different transportation along the way, car, bus & boat. Everyone knew exactly where we needed to go. We would like to thank Dronica for organizing and Stella, Kenny and Bamo for their time and knowledge! We learned so much about the inland, people and wildlife of Surinam!

I decided to join this tour while I was travelling in Suriname. I applied for this tour at the last minute so I was not sure if I could participate in this, but Dronica was very helpful and I managed to go to Commewijne. I saw many lovely dolphins in the river although it was difficult to take photos as they were agile and the river was large. The guide was a very knowlegeable person and taught us a lot of things about plantation and Suriname. He prepared some snack and drink we could eat on the boat but we seldom had them as we were much more amused by dolphins and scenery.

I was looking for a tour to visit a village or see wild nature for a few days. This tour was much more than I had expected, met local people, enjoyed local food, night tour to see caimans and spiders, jungle walk, traditional dance by women. It was also fun to ascend a big river to Jaw Jaw by boat . I saw women cooking cassava bread, which I only read in my textbook when I was a child. Impressive Suriname Travel was very surpportive. I strongly recommend you join this tour if you visit Suriname.

We cannot pay enough compliments to Dronica and the team she put together for our 17 days in Suriname & French Guiana. We initially contacted Impressive Suriname about just a couple of excursions we knew we wanted to take and figured we would have to make arrangements ourselves for the rest of our stay. To our great delight we soon received an itinerary from Impressive Suriname that included airport pickup, eight excursions, and ultimately a transfer back to the international airport. The planning was so well organized we booked everything and are so grateful that we did. Dronica's attention to detail, updates via WhatsApp, and the team of guides and drivers she arranged were absolutely excellent. We enjoyed every day of our vacation and sure wish Impressive Suriname offered services worldwide!
