Guyana - A view from our expert author


Guyana

This small country, home to 2,000 animal species, has everything you need for a wildlife adventure.

Guyana

Because Guyana has never experienced droves of tourists, everything is done on a more intimate scale here.

Guyana

Guyana’s tourism offerings are largely nature-based and ideal for discerning visitors who like a sense of adventure with their travels.

Guyana

Guyana is not for the fussy, but this unpolished and unpretentious tourism creates a unique experience.

English-speaking, jungle-covered and stuffed full of wildlife and birds, Guyana won’t be a South American secret for long.

Read The author’s take

Guyana remains one of South America’s real secrets, hidden between its bigger and better-known neighbours. This small country – home to 2,000 animal species – has everything you need for a wildlife adventure: unexplored equatorial rainforest, the dramatic Kanuku Mountains, sea turtles on pristine beaches, the ferocious Kaieteur Waterfall and the beautifully moody Essequibo River.

Guyana leads you into a million-acre rainforest reserve and hurriedly past the world’s largest alligators; through 11,000 years of history and culture to colonial Georgetown; into welcoming Amerindian communities in the Rupununi savannas; and to hammocks and lodges where you can relax among nature’s riches.
