An account is given of a scientific expedition to the Emma Range in Dutch Guiana. The expedition left on 10 July 1959 from Paramaribo, and after five days reached the base camp on the Toekoemoetoe creek, a tributary of the upper Saramacca River. From here the expedition proceeded by foot to the Emma Range. The main camp was situated at the foot of the range, at a height of 325 m. Two subsidary camps were set up at the north and south of the range respectively. On the 28th October the expedition returned to Paramaribo.
