Multi Species Mecca
For the intrepid Amazon angler, Suriname offers a brand new world of jungle sportfishing, with some of the largest Red Tail Catfish in all South America, as well as other tropical species. Kabalebo Nature Resort is situated in the estuary of the Lucy River, under the great Misty Mountain. The only human presence in this untouched natural area is the resort created by owner Karel Dawson. The Kabalebo River flows like a mountain stream, lined by rainforest with rocky outcroppings carefully navigated by the lodge's staff. For fishing, wildlife and Amazon adventure, put Kabalebo on your list of places to explore.

Kabalebo Nature Resort


The Kabalebo River is an angler's paradise, teaming with fish. Among the sport species are red tail catfish weighing as much as 60 kg, giant traida (the national sportfish), pacu, surubin catfish, and of course the piranha.

In 1986, Karel Dawson came to this part of Suriname and decided to build the Kabalebo Nature Resort in order to enjoy and share this incredible natural and unspoiled habitat. The resulting lodge has 10 twin-bedded rooms with air-conditioning, closet space and private bathroom with hot and cold running water. There is also a spacious veranda on which meals are served and which offers an opportunity to relax, watching and listening to the local wildlife.

The resort offers an all-inclusive local meal plan as well as a bar. Breakfast and dinner will be served at the lodge and lunch will be provided aboard the fishing boats.
