Kayak Expedition The best place for wildlife encouters
With this expedition we are going to explore the full length of the Lucie river, one of the most pristine rivers in the world. We will prepare our inflatable kayaks and start our 300 km adventure downstream. This expedition is full of impressive rapids, beautiful wildlife, diverse flora and stunning views!
We are looking for a team of real adventures with at least a bit of kayak experience. Are you sportive, healthy, flexible and a real nature lover?
December 9th – 22nd, 2023 (1 spot left!)
October 14th – 23rd, 2024
During this expedition we will be dropped by a bushplane on the Kayser airstrip. After arrival we will carefully sort out all our stuff, inflate the kayaks and prepare everything to start our 300km long journey over the Lucie river towards the nearest small amerindian village; Amatopo. Being able to travel such a vast stretch of pristine jungle by a non-motorized boat will make sure that we will see a great amount of wildlife. Making camps alongside the river, catch our own fish and enjoy this pristine jungle.
Most days, we will spend our time on the river in the early morning and late afternoon when the wildlife is active too. During the heat of the day we will look for some shade and have a meal.
WILDLIFE YOU CAN ENCOUNTER DURING THIS EXPEDITION
These birds are one of the largest eagles in the world. Their claws are as big as the claws of a grizzly bear. This might also explain why the harpy eagles we meet are not impressed by us at all. We can really take our time photographing this individual. We can even sail right under it, and it still remains on its branch while giving us only a quick look.
South American Tapir
The South American Tapir definitely belongs to the Surinamese big 5!
They can weigh up to 320kg and are therefore the largest terrestrial mammal of South America!
Even with a maximum of nearly 9 meters they are still not the longest snake on the planet. But with the maximum of about 225kg they surely are the heaviest! Undoubtedly one of the Suriname’s BIG 5!
