Surama

Located in the heart of Guyana, the Macushi Amerindian village of Surama is set in savannah ringed by the forested Pakaraima Mountains. The inhabitants still observe traditional practises which maintain a peaceful co-existence with nature. Dawn hikes in the savannahs and mountains led by Surama guides, who convey a profound understanding of nature and its resources, may reveal a multitude of birds and wide vistas. The community has established a lodge which provides a base for night walks and daytime canoe floats on the river, providing the chance to see giant river otter, tapir, black spider monkey, red howler monkey and weeping and brown capuchin monkeys and many more species.
