Brownsberg Hiking Tour
By bus or minibus we will arrive on Brownsberg. This is a nature reserve park located in the Brokopondo district, about 130 kilometers south of Paramaribo. The nature reserve park covers more than 12,000 hectares and is home to exceptional flora and fauna. There are various medicinal plants that are traditionally used for injuries or illnesses.
You will encounter most animals at sunrise and sunset. The howler monkeys usually make themselves heard and maybe a wild deer or Pakira (forest pig) is spotted. High in the treetops you will find hundreds of different species of tropical birds.
At the Mazaroni plateau you have a magnificent view of the reservoir that was created by man to place the Afobaka dam in the Suriname river. The area of the lake was inhabited before the dam was built. Most people have moved to the so-called transmigration villages in Brokopondo and other areas in the Upper Suriname area. Remnants of tree trunks are still visible in the lake, creating a unique image. Itinerary

From Paramaribo we will drive to Paranam on the famous Afobakaweg, in route to Brownsberg. Along the way we pass the old bauxite mining company and also small villages that are situated at the Afobakaweg. The guide will inform you more about how these villages came to exist.
When we arrive at the mountain you can enjoy the beautiful surroundings of the more than 500 meters high Mazaroni plateau. Here you have a magnificent view of the reservoir that was created by man to place the Afobaka dam in the Suriname river.
At Brownsberg we take a hike to one of the 4 waterfalls. The hiking trails there run right through the beautiful rainforest over hills, the climb and descent of which require a good amount of stamina.
