Guyana Wildlife: South America's wild frontier

14 days from £3,913pp
 

Private Journey

 
On this breathtaking holiday we introduce you to this emerging wildlife destination, English-speaking Guyana, formerly British Guiana. The Caribbean coast is a tangle of mangroves and sugar cane plantations. Inland is a landscape of savannah and rainforest; of ancient tablelands and waterfalls. In the back-country lodges here the few visitors are warmly welcomed. In the south, the wildlife, so rarely disturbed, seems oblivious to observers. 

Wilderness waterfalls, vast tropical rainforests and horizon-bending grasslands: a nation the size of Great Britain, Guyana is unrivalled for its spectacular natural attractions and diversity of wildlife. Expect to spot all varieties of animals and birdlife from the cock-of-the-rock to the Black caiman, the tiny golden frog to the rare giant river otter- and maybe even a watchful jaguar. 

After arriving in the idiosyncratic capital, Georgetown, you will head inland to the spectacular Kaieteur falls followed by the verdant nature reserve of Iwokrama Forest and onwards through Amerindian communities to the famous Karanambu Lodge. Guyana is rapidly becoming one of the most important ecotourism havens in Latin America- and it’s not difficult to see why.
