Guyana is the continent's best-kept secret. This lesser-known country is ideal for those looking for something a little different, you will find no better place for an authentic and raw adventure than here. Guyana offers both cultural and natural wonders to discover, being dense in tropical rainforest and extensive rivers that have been left largely undiscovered. Consequently, it is a remaining haven for some of the rarest animals in South America; expect plentiful tapirs, giant anaconda, metres-long caiman, a plethora of bird species, large troops of river otters, giant anteaters and with luck — jaguars.
On this 12-day trip feel like an early explorer as you traverse into the depths of the rainforest and work the winding rivers of the wilderness, searching for wildlife at every turn. Also on the agenda is the spectacular Kaieteur Falls with its micro-environment and the beautiful Georgetown botanical gardens, home to a wide variety of bird species, all alongside the contrasting yet equally stunning Savannah and an opportunity to climb the Sumara Mountain for incredible views. Throughout your journey you'll also be staying in some of the country's best-situated and most environmentally-conscious lodges.
