Anteaters, tapirs and monkeys surround us as we adventure deep into the forested interior. As we travel by river we may be rewarded with a glimpse of Guyana's amazing bird and wildlife, including the giant river otter.
Our adventure starts as we fly deep into the jungle to see the stunning Kaieteur and Orinduik Falls. We then visit Iwokrama Field Station, exploring trails and at night spotting caiman and other nocturnal wildlife. The Iwokrama canopy walkway is another highlight, as is the Amerindian village of Surama.
Next is Burro Burro river, searching for river otters and more, then a little luxury at Rock View Lodge, an oasis in the savannah.
A canoe trip on the Rupununi River takes us to Karanambu, the home of Diane McTurk, renowned for her work rehabilitating orphaned giant river otters to the wild.
Now deep in Guyana's interior, we visit Caiman House and see how the resident scientist's field studies into black caiman progress, taking to canoes at night.
We fly back to Georgetown for an afternoon city tour and one final hurrah before leaving this stunning rainforest-covered country.
