  • Animals do you want them, beautiful waterfalls and nice hikes. What more could you ask for? A carbet a little better renovated perhaps ... For access, hang on. The track is in poor condition and the all-terrain buses are struggling sometimes. But once you get there, it's worth the trip. I recommend it!

  • The last time I was on Brownsberg was with a group of 15 other family members. Tripadvisor did not exist yet. I still know a lot of game. Snakes, different monkeys, lots of birds. The group of howler monkeys still makes you awake in the morning. But oh oh, what a demise. You are deeply disappointed by the hum of machines that are digging gold and disturbing the peace. Also on the way there is sometimes a scare. Do a 4x4, otherwise it's sweating up to the top. And the descent is also less sociable than. A tourist from Baltimore (not named) took his rental car from Avis (no 4x4) to the top. He just fetched it and he could still tell him back. But I recommend it! Just having a four wheel drive is already exciting enough. Nice to visit the Ireneval and all the normal and still a serious trip, not intended for heart patients, but if you really want to color outside the lines, then you have to whisper the following: "I have heard that a waterfall that was in the 1920s Of the last century has been discovered and only rediscovered, here is nearby... Can we do it? " Maybe he or she will take you with you. Because it is with great distance the most beautiful of all the waterfalls on the Brownsberg. I have left the guide on the top of that waterfall with that crazy tourist from the USA and we are at your own risk dropping this trap. Not for wimps...!!! You have to have your own four-wheel drive, because with the van you never come! Because of this exceptional experience and good food, Brownsberg still gets three out of five of me. But don't expect too much of the accommodation. Nice to stay and the next day on the way back again to go to the reservoir.
