What makes this tour special

  • Unique experience
  • Low physical intensity
  • Close to the city

In the afternoon you will travel by bus and boat from Paramaribo to the beach (approx. 1,5 hour).
On the beach there is enough time to walk around, to paddle and/or to see the amazing sunset. We enjoy a Surinamese dinner with a glass of rum or beer.
After the sunset, you start walking over the beach with a guide, to search for sea turtles. There are guidelines that’ll have to be followed to make sure the sea turtles won’t be disturbed. The entire process of coming onto land, laying eggs and returning to the sea takes approximately 1,5 to 2,5 hours.
After this extraordinary experience we return back to Leonsberg, this will be after midnight or sometimes even later.
You will return to the departure point by bus, with a unique experience you’ll never forget.

*During the visit to the sea turtles, our company follows the WWF (World Wildife Fund) guidelines. This to prevent that the sea turtles will be disturbed during their process. The guides are trained to follow these rules, which they also will explain to the guests.

Most tour operators (like Orange Travel) list their rates in Euro.
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).

*** All credit card payments are processed in U$D and a bank fee is added. The fee for Visa and MasterCard is 5% (in this Orange Travel has no benefit, yet influence). This payment method requires you to show your passport.
