After having explored Paramaribo for three days, we decided to go for the jungle experience and took a trip to Kabalebo. After an hour's flight over the amazing jungle (or 'broccoli' as the Surinamese call it), you arrive at this remote and peaceful resort. It is one of the most special places we have ever visited and you will feel it the moment you get off that little plane. We stayed in one of the three river cabana's, a 10 minute walk from the main lodge and situated along the stunning Kabalebo river. During our stay we went for hikes in the jungle, went on kayaking tours, conquered Misty Mountain and took refreshing plunges in the rivers and creeks. Unfortunately we didn't get to see the elusive jaguar but we did see many monkeys, snakes, tiny little colourful and poisonous frogs, caimans and even a massive tapir. But we always felt safe in the capable hands of our guide Giovanni, whose knowledge of the jungle and it's animals was impressive. In between tours we relaxed at the pool or just enjoyed the sounds of the jungle from our cabana terrace. During the daytime we heard the chirping of the many birds while the cicada's and howler monkeys took over at night.
The buffet at the lodge offered a variety of flavoursome Surinamese dishes. You could even come here exclusively for the food and have an amazing time!
The staff was very friendly and helpful and seemed to get along really well, which benefited the overall atmosphere.
We loved every minute of our time at Kabalebo and it turned out to be the perfect introduction to the Surinamese jungle.
