Guyana: Fly over Kaieteur Falls

Visit Us

Fly over Kaieteur Falls

Kaieteur Falls ranks as one of the world's most impressive waterfalls, as much for its awe-inspiring location as for the sheer volume and force of water that plummets over its 250m drop. Situated deep in the inaccessible heartlands of Guyana, the falls occupy an incredible sandstone amphitheatre where the land seems to simply collapse from under the gushing Potaro river.

Other than walking for days, the only way to reach this staggeringly remote natural wonder is by propeller plane, landing at a tiny airstrip near the waterfall. You'll arrive in a pristine natural environment brimming with bromeliads and golden frogs, where with the deafening roar of the falls filling your ears you can stand or lie on the edge of a natural rock platform overlooking Kaieteur. It's an incredible experience made all the more powerful by the lack of human impact – the view is one of untarnished natural beauty, completely unchanged in the century and a half since it was discovered by the outside world.

On the way back you'll also touch down at the dramatically different Orinduik Falls, where a river cascades down a staircase of jasper. It's an ideal spot for a swim before taking to the skies once again for a last chance to admire the landscape of table mountains and savannahs laid out beneath you.
