Little-visited but with a great diversity of landscapes and wildlife and a friendly, English-speaking population, Guyana is one of the natural world’s best kept secrets.


Little-visited but with a great diversity of landscapes and wildlife and a friendly, English-speaking population, Guyana is emerging as one of the natural world’s best kept secrets.

Vast swaths of virgin rainforests give way to sweeping savannahs, and deep river gorges wind their serpentine way to spectacular waterfalls, including the world’s most spectacular unknown cascade: Kaieteur Falls. Around four times higher than Niagara, mighty Kaieteur is a magnificent sight to behold, especially as there is practically no development to spoil its original natural setting.

Although wildlife is often difficult to view due to the pristine environment, Guyana boasts a huge number of bird and mammal species, including a healthy population of jaguar and the world’s only giant river otter rehabilitation centre. There is a good chance to see the otters and also giant anteater and many bird species.

Since Guyana has an uninviting coastline of mudflats and mangrove, combining it with Trinidad and Tobago, or perhaps St Lucia, is highly recommended for their tropical beaches, coral reefs and excellent additional wildlife options (eg oilbirds at Asa Wright in Trinidad).

What makes Guyana additionally special is that it is the only English-speaking country in South America, and consequently you really warm to the people you meet, whether chatting with local cowboys, entertaining local school children or putting the world to rights with village elders.
