Birding in Suriname - by Otte Ottema
INFORMATION ABOUT DAYTRIPSThere are four daytrips possible.
1. Paramaribo and surroundings
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 for info about the birds in these places Paramaribo.
2. Warapa kreek
This is a boat trip. See for info about the birds Paramaribo.
There are two different trips to the savannah. One visits the Powaka savannah, Phedra and Berlin. The other visits the area around the international airport Zanderij and Berlin. See for info about the birds in these places Overbridge. 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 Gay. Behind this cemetery is a small beautiful savannah, with Grasland Sparrows. The rare Lesser Elaenia has been spotted there recently twice.
all in daytrips per person in Euro, subject to change without notice.
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 70 euro for 1 and 2 persons and 100 euro for 3 or more persons. I can help you rent a car. You need an international drivers license.
Warapa kreek is only possible all in.
