In the 1980's of the past century Mr. Wijnberg Tokoe, owner of Myrysji Tours Suriname, went to Paramaribo for further education. He returned to Galibi (Langamankondre and Christiaankondre) with the idea to bring development to his village. In June 1986 a conflict started between a group of men from the interior and the army isolated the district Marowijne. In April 1992, after the conflict ended, Mr. Wijnberg started with a 3 bedroom vacation lodge, mainly for friends and acquaintances from Paramaribo. By following a variety of tourism courses he took the initiative to further specialize in tourism development in his village. Myrysji Tours Suriname is one of the first who put the villages, Langaman- and Christiaankondre, on the map of Suriname. Every year he invested in his building turning it into the comfortable Myrysji Lodge. In 2004 Myrysji Tours Suriname won the BID golden management award in Madrid, Spain.
The Galibi Nature Reserve is in the North-East corner of Suriname in the district Marowijne. Two villages called Langamankondre and Christiaankondre are also part of the Galibi area at the mouth of the Marowijne River. About 800 people live in these two villages and they are descendants of the Indigenous tribe called ‘Caribs’. These Caribs have settled in this area right after the abolition of slavery. Their main sources of income are agri-culture and fishing as their ancestors have thought them. The traditional handicraft of the tribe seems to be preserved now with the introduction of tourism as another source of income.
