INFORMATION ABOUT DAYTRIPS

DAYTRIPS


There are four daytrips possible.

1. Paramaribo and Surroundings


(6:30-19:00)
We will visit Peperpot - an abandoned coffee plantation, Weg naar Zee and when we do not find the Crimson-hooded Manakin in Peperpot also the Cultuurtuin. See Paramaribo for info about the birds in these places.

2. Warapa Creek


(6:30-18:00)
This is a boat trip. See Paramaribo for info about the birds.

3. & 4. Savannah


(4:00 if you want to see the nightjars, or else 5:30 – 18:00)

There are two different trips to the savannah. One visits the Powakka savannah, Phedra and Berlin. The other visits the area around the international airport Zanderij and Berlin. See Overbridge for info about the birds in these places. Berlin has a nice and old cemetery, which is very good for birds. Paradise Jacamar, Purple Throated Fruitcrows and Black Nunbirds are regularly seen and there is a good chance for Cayenne Jay. Behind this cemetery is a small beautiful savannah, with Grasland Sparrows. The rare Lesser Elaenia has been spotted there recently twice.

If you hire a car yourself it is much cheaper. You have to take care for food yourself also for me and pay my guide fee, which is 90 euro for 1 and 2 persons and 120 euro for 3 or more persons. I can help you rent a car. You need an international drivers license.
Warapa Creek is only possible all in.
