3/4/5 Days Danpaati

Attention: All our trips in Suriname are covered by the guarantee of insurance for the Tourism Sector Suriname.

Danpaati means “island near the village of Dan” and is situated in the middle of the tropical rainforest, surrounded solely by the untouched nature of the Amazon region and a few small Saramaccan villages. There, you can immerse yourself in the untouched beauty of the wilderness, learn everything about a different culture, or simply relax in one of the hammocks at the splendid Upper Suriname river. In doing so, you will be making a contribution towards the sustenance of the local population, as the Danpaati River Lodge offers these holidays under the umbrella of sustainable development. Danpaati River Lodge is there for anyone who is looking for a vacation that is just a little different, with various activities to relax, experience an adventure by making exciting jungle excursions or village tours accompanied by local guides, by swimming or by learning from the contact with the local population.

Danpaati River Lodge has been built in accordance with the traditional building styles of the Upper Suriname region. While effectively tending to your comfort, the accommodations exude the same elegant simplicity that you will find everywhere in the villages surrounding the lodge. The lodge consists of fourteen two-person cabins and a six-person family cabin. Ten of the cabins are located on the side of the river and the remaining five are located on the side of the forest. Each cabin has its own shower (cold water) and toilet, electricity, a veranda, and two single beds with mosquito nets. These two single beds can also be joined to serve as a double bed.

  • Cosy lounge
  • Pleasant bar with an extensive selection
  • Modern recreation room
  • A fun pool on the island
Your stay in Danpaati is all about enjoying the people and the surroundings. The idea is that much is possible, but nothing is a must. In addition to the magnificent lodge, the island and its surroundings also offer a diverse range of activities. How would you feel about exciting evening excursions in search of caimans? About village tours giving you the opportunity to meet face-to-face with the inhabitants of the region? About informative forest walks, ranging from one hour to an entire day? Or about a korjaal excursion to deserted creeks and exciting rapids? Of course, you can also stay on the island if you prefer to do so. On Danpaati, you can attend workshops that show you e.g. how to braid your hair in the traditional manner or allow you to try out art forms that the local in­habitants have already been doing for centuries. Other options include a traditional massage and a soothing herbal bath, administered by specially selected local massage therapists.
