Explore Guyana - dense rainforest, open savannah plains, exotic wildlife and spectacular scenery
Caught between the Caribbean and the Amazon, Guyana’s natural credentials are impressive, endless jungles give way to vast open grasslands, all criss-crossed by rivers such as the Demerara, the Rupunini and the Potaro which tumbles 226m over a flat-top mountain at the spectacular Kaieteur Falls. Wildlife abounds, from small hummingbirds fluttering around gardens to the elusive jaguar, just as much as people are sparse with as many visitors in a year as Machu Picchu gets in a single day. A true nature-lover’s paradise.
What makes this trip responsible?
On this trip we stay at Surama Eco-Lodge, owned and managed by a local Amerindian community. We also spend 4 nights in the Iwokrama Forest Reserve, and the income from our visit goes directly to preserving this important conservation area. Our local partners in Guyana, along with other key players in Guyana, are actively involved in promoting sustainable tourism, training and community development and improvements in local infrastructure.
