Raleighvallen (Raleigh Falls)/Voltzberg Reserve is the northernmost section of the Central Suriname Nature Reserve, 100 mi/160 km southwest of Paramaribo. This park has fantastic granite outcroppings that tower over a rain-forest paradise teeming with birds and other animals. There are several marked trails (be sure to stick to them—special permission is needed to go off the trails). One of the trails leads to the top of Voltzberg Dome, an 820-ft/250-m granite rock with sweeping views of the rain forest below. The park offers accommodations in two lodges.
To reach Raleighvallen, fly to Foengoe from Paramaribo or drive to Bitagron and take a boat up the river to the Foengoe Island Lodge.
