Land of giants...
For its unparalleled and remarkable biodiversity, come and meet some of the endangered giants of South America, many of which are still thriving in Guyana: jaguar, giant river otter, giant anteater, giant armadillo, capybara, harpy eagle, arapaima, a water lily big enough to support a child, black and spectacled caiman, giant river turtle, false vampire bat, the bushmaster pit viper, green anaconda, and bird-eating spiders the size of a dinner plate.
More than 800 species are found here, including the coy Guianan cock-of-the-rock, the elusive rufous-winged ground cuckoo, and the critically endangered red siskin and sun parakeet. You can also see manatee, bearded saki monkeys, Brazilian tapir, river stingrays, poison dart frogs, brilliantly-coloured beetles and butterflies, and the list goes on.
Expert indigenous guides will ensure that your encounters with these magnificent creatures are as close up — or as safely distant — as possible so you can experience the intense biodiversity pulsing through Guyana’s rainforests, mountains, mangroves, and savannahs.
As South America’s only English-speaking country, Guyana it also offers opportunities to engage directly with the people. Interior Guyana’s small and dispersed Amerindian population is warm and welcoming, eager to share its traditional knowledge of the rainforest and its rich treasures.The spirit of community in Guyana is strong and unmistakably evident at every turn.
Guyana is an emerging gem in the nature and adventure tourism market. Still little known, Guyana's lush interior, criss-crossed by a myriad of rivers and cascading waterfalls, enveloped by virgin rainforest, revealed in its far-stretching savannahs and teeming with tropical wild life rivals the best nature and adventure destinations anywhere else in the world.
With a small population of 750,000 people in land space the size of Great Britain, most of its interior is uninhabited except for a scattering of Indigenous Amerindian villages and a few small towns. Because of its British colonial past, the language is English and it has very strong links with the Caribbean. Located on the north eastern shoulder of South America and one hours flight away from Trinidad and Barbados, it is the gateway to both Amazonia and the Caribbean.
