General2/3 Days Galibi
Attention: All our trips in Suriname are covered by the guarantee of insurance for the Tourism Sector Suriname.
Galibi is a nature reserve that covers more than 4000 hectares and is situated on the Atlantic Ocean, at the mouth of the Marowijne river in the north-east of Suriname. This tour’s charm resides in the potentially unforgettable encounters with the colossal sea turtles that come to nest here, the unspoilt nature, the magnificent sandy beaches, and the culture of the indigenous Carib people in the villages of Christiaankondre and Langamankondre.

You will depart from Paramaribo early in the morning, via the east-west connection, through the districts Commewijne and Marowijne, towards Albina where you will arrive in the early afternoon. Here, your trip will continue by boat. You will arrive at your destination after sailing for approximately one hour and a half. A walk through the village is scheduled after lunch, to introduce you to the culture of the friendly indigenous Carib people. After supper*, you will sail to Babunsanti. This is one of the few places in the world where you can witness gigantic sea turtles laying their eggs on the beach. This is an annually recurrent phenomenon during the nesting season, which lasts from February up to and including the middle of August. Outside the nesting season, the visit to the sea turtles is replaced by a cultural show.
(*Length of this visit depends on the tide)
After breakfast, the guide will take you for a walk on the beach and you will have the opportunity to take a refreshing dip in the river. There after, you will go for a walk through the village of Christiaankondre together with the guide. While returning to Paramaribo, you will stop in French Guyana, where you can (optionally) visit the old prison.
