Itinerary

With a domestic flight from Zorg en Hoop near Paramaribo this unforgettable tour starts. This 1-hour flight takes you over the jungle of Suriname before landing on the airstrip of Kabalebo. This truly pristine area had no indigenous communities, and limited accessibility. Therefore, wildlife has never been hunted or disturbed and are not afraid for humans! Because of this, much of the wildlife is relatively easy to see in comparison with other locations. Several tapirs roam the area that are used to being in the vicinity of humans. Even the jaguar and Harpy eagle visit the lodge every now and then!

WILDLIFE YOU CAN ENCOUNTER AT KABALEBO

Capybara (kabalebo 4)

Capybara

Giant-river-otters

Giant river Otter


This species is usually encountered with just their heads above water. In the water they are most definitely the apex predators; preying on fish like piranhas but also feed on snakes and even caiman! Most people think they’re cute, but when observed this close you can see their full size, muscular bodies and scar tissue. Beautiful and impressive animals to witness.

Black-currasow (Kabalebo)

Black Curassow


In pristine forests where they are not hunted, the low frequency call of these birds are a common sound. In these areas they are not afraid of humans at all and close-up pictures are easy to get. It prefers to walk and when threatened, it will run rather than fly. It is a ground-dweller, spending most of its time in search of fallen fruits in the forest. It also scratches the ground like a chicken looking for large insects and small animals.
