Overland Travel in Suriname
One of the three tiny countries on South America’s northern side, Suriname lies far from everywhere due to the Amazon Rainforest that cuts it off from the rest of the continent. Don’t let this stop you, Suriname is a fascinating country. There aren’t many roads and chances are that you will explore parts by boat, on foot, or even plane (to get deep in the rainforest). However, a vast savannah turns Suriname in an overland travel paradise. Unsurprisingly, Suriname has an active 4×4 community so see if you can join them on a rally.
Suriname is unlike any other country in South America due to its diversity of cultures. Don’t miss it.
