Ocelot family near Kabalebo

For a while now we have some new residents at Kabalebo Nature Resort. An ocelot family has joint the resort and lives nearby.

This family makes daily visits to a nearby spot giving tourist who visit Kabalebo the opportunity to go on exclusive ocelot spotting trips. The father, mother, children and possible even a second wife are now part of what the resort offers.

Ocelots are probably the best known medium size cat of the Americas, mostly due to predominance of use of fur for coats. Pelage (fur) is short, thick, and gray with rosettes and spots. They are strongly nocturnal, resting in trees and dense brush during the day. Male and female habitats are separate, with males' overlapping females'. Ocelots are also known for their smell - they have a very strong smell that is used to mark their territories.

It isn't easy to spot an ocelot and tourists who have partaken in this activity have underlined what an extraordinary adventure it is. Since the family has nestled at our resort (in the nearby forest) we offer our guest the opportunity to partake in ocelot spotting activities. During these activities guest are brought to the location where the ocelots visit daily and guest can see these magnificent animals from a distance.

Have you ever seen a ocelot in its natural habitat? If you haven't you should come to Kabalebo Nature Resort and make sure you sign up for our ocelot spotting activity. For those who already enjoyed this activity; we invite you to share your experience on our page or our website.

We haven't given the ocelots a name yet, maybe you can help us do so. Idea's can be posted on our Facebook page.

Freek Vonk is back at Kabalebo
Freek Vonk is back at Kabalebo
Freek Vonk is a bilogist that made a couple of documentaries for the National Geographic Channel and the Discovery Channel. He travels the world to explore and Freek has visited Suriname several times.

In march 2012 he visited Suriname with Eddy Zoëy for the making of the documentary "Animals in the wild". We think that he feels at home at Kabalebo Nature Resort sins he just paid us a visit again. Read about his visits to Kabalebo Nature Resort, as he called it "the super green, lush and fertile oasis in the dessert".

During the first visit the team enjoyed all the wildlife Kabalebo has to offer and got great footage for there documentary. As Freek says; "the Surinamese jungle is comparable to a candy store. Everywhere you can hear, see and smell the animal kingdom." The latter certainly, because on the second day of their visit the crew already came face to face with the Amazon giant, the anaconda. The documentary of Freek Vonk was aired on the National Geographical Channel.

Freek Vonk was so impressed with what he encountered at Kabalebo this world traveler decided to vacation at Kabalebo with his family. Last month we've had the pleasure of welcoming him and his family at our resort. And he enjoyed our various activities and a decent catch during the fish trip.

See you again soon Freek and all the national geography watchers, come and experience our resort for yourself. You'll love the real life documentary experience.
