Guyana

With its Caribbean coastline and rugged, jungle-smothered interior, Guyana is an ideal destination for adventure seekers and nature lovers seeking an immersive adventure that few travellers experience.

In Guyana's lush interior you'll find a maze of spectacular rivers, gorges, table-top mountains and waterfalls, and some of the world's most dense and bio diverse remaining tracts of tropical rainforest, teeming with rare flora and remarkable wildlife. Wild and unspoiled, this is the Amazon at its most rugged and remote.

Join our exciting new trip to Guyana, Suriname and French Guiana and spend your days travelling through Amazonian jungle, spotting exotic wildlife, enjoying accommodation under a stunning rainforest canopy and discovering local Amerindian cultures from the some of world's most friendly and hospitable people.

Finally, you'll reach the astonishing Kaieteur Falls, the world's widest single drop waterfall, where there are no crowds, touts or tourist buses to be seen - just the awe-inspiring spectacle of one of the world's most powerful waterfalls dumping water from its striking table-top sandstone plateau to the Potaro River far below. Only witnessed by a handful of adventurous travelers each year, it's a sight that's sure to stay with you for life!

Once back in Georgetown, you'll discover the Caribbean vibe and faded colonial architecture of Guyana's laidback capital, with its remnants of British, Dutch, Creole and French influence on every street.

Join us on a thrilling adventure and be one of the few to experience this little-visited gem of South America!
