Guyana means ‘Land of Many Waters’ from an Amerindian language. From the northern coastline along the Caribbean to the waterfalls tumbling from its high Tepuis in the south and west, Guyana is lush and pristine and loaded with winding rivers, the highways of the people of Guyana.
Most of Guyana’s 800,000 population live along the coast, and few roads lead to the interior, so nearly 80% of the country remains virgin. Thanks to this beautiful, unbroken forest, much of our travel within Guyana will be by boat or plane.
Kaieteur Falls drops an astonishing 822 feet, five times higher than Niagra and offers many endemic plants and an easily seen endemic Golden Frog. Rivers, forests and savannas offer great mammals like Giant Anteater and Giant River Otter.
Our incredible birding opportunities will offer many endemics and specialties like Rufous Crab Hawk, Blood-colored Woodpecker and the stunningly beautiful Guianan Cock-of-the-Rock.
