Guyana: Karanambu Ranch

Visit Us

Karanambu Ranch

Karanambu Ranch is the home of Diane McTurk, widely known for her work rehabilitating orphaned giant river otters to the wild. Karanambu has a long history of welcoming visiting naturalists and television crews, and both David Attenborough and Gerald Durrell are amongst the ranch’s previous guests.

Accommodation is in five basic clay cottages with twin beds and a shaded veranda; most have private bathrooms with refreshing cold-water showers. Meals are served communally around a large dining table in the living room of the main ranch house.

On occasions there are otters at the lodge, and visits can be made to nearby ponds to spot birds and admire the enormous Victoria Amazonica water lilies, which can be seen coming into flower on one of the several boat trips offered from the lodge. Other excursions involve opportunities to fish, watch caiman patrolling the lake at night, or explore the savannah on foot or by 4WD vehicle in search of wildlife.

What our experts say

You can swim in the river with the otters and watch as they are woken in morning or put to bed for an afternoon nap.
