Starting your journey from the ocean beach, you’ll be greeted by the sound of crashing waves and the salty breeze, setting the tone for a refreshing adventure. As you make your way through the indigenous forest, you’ll be surrounded by towering trees, vibrant foliage, and the tranquil sounds of nature. Keep an eye out for the diverse array of animals that call this forest home, from elusive mammals to colorful birds.

Crossing rivers along the way adds an element of excitement and challenge to your journey, offering opportunities for exploration and discovery. The deep gorges of the Kaaimans and Touw rivers, once formidable obstacles for ox wagons, now provide breathtaking vistas and memorable experiences for modern-day explorers.
