After leaving Paramaribo towards the Brokopondo District, we arrive at the Overbridge River Resort after a drive of approximately one hour. At Overbridge you will get a tour of the complex and you check in into your cabana. Your comfortable cabana with air conditioning and hot water can serve as a base for the rest of the two days, from which you can undertake activities such as a walk in the woods and a swim in the Suriname River. You can also choose to simply relax on the beach or in a hammock under the trees. From the pier at Overbridge you can also go fishing in the hope to catch a Toekoenari, Koebi, pike or Trapoen. During breakfast, lunch and dinner you are expected at the restaurant where you can enjoy your meal. Towards the end of the afternoon of the second day, you will head back towards Paramaribo.

The most advantageous way to pay is cash or by bank* in Euro.
Followed by cash in SRD or U$D, then POS in SRD * and finally a credit card payment **.

* If there are any additional bank charges, these should be paid by the customer. If it turns out that not the full agreed amount is credited to our account, the difference should still be paid before participating or checking in.

** When using POS (our machine only excepts SRD) we will use the daily exchange rate of the cambio’s. As these sometimes differ significantly from the rate your- and our bank uses, you can come out worse between 10% and 30% (in this Orange Travel has no benefit, yet influence).
