Coq of the Rock: Trailblazing the Guianas


Group Journey


This is a trip which emphatically goes off the beaten track, taking in some of the rarely-visited highlights of Venezuela, Suriname and the Guianas. You won’t find a group tour like this offered by anyone else: the logistics of researching and organising such a trip are daunting but as South America experts we relished the challenge. You'll scramble through dense jungle to glimpse two of the continent's most impressive cataracts: Angel Falls and Kaieteur Falls; surround yourself with wildlife in a rainforest canopy and drive through sweeping savannah punctuated by ancient sandstone plateaux.

You’ll stay in sweltering frontier settlements and hammock camps in the forest; visit the French space station and an old penal colony; take boat rides down jungle-fringed rivers and lap up the atmosphere of colonial towns and brash, bold capital cities. You'll have to be prepared for delays, for things not going quite to plan, but you'll be rewarded by an unforgettable trip.
