Day 1
our journey begins in Paramaribo by jeep along with the canoes on a trailer to the starting point of the journey, the Above Coesewijne River. A trip by jeep from 2.5 hours along the Zanderij airport and then by the Coesewijne. Once in the boat, we job our way across the narrow Above Coesewijne River. At low tide, we must leave regularly the boat to pass these obstacles and fallen trees. Today we make a camp. Nothing is more delicious than enjoy all the sounds in the jungle while enjoying a good meal. In addition to our group there is nobody else. The busy city is far away. Only we and the jungle.

Day 2
today we sail the Goliath Creek down to the junction with the Coesewijne River. Here we paddle inro the Coesewijne nature reserve, passing Pakoeli-the old Stinasu base camp, and we stop regularly en route to enjoy the special surroundings. We see many unusual birds such as the Osprey, the ploceidae family and different types of parrots. On a nice quiet spot along the river we go ashore and make our lunch ready. Next, we start our last journey and paddle back to Pakoeli where the jeep is waiting. At the end of the day we will arrive in Paramaribo.
