Guyana offers rewarding wildlife viewing, plus a truly authentic wilderness experience, making it an outstanding destination. Yet, it remains one of the least-visited nations in the world.

The small nation of Guyana is one of South America's true mysteries. The country covers 215,000 square kilometres, a larger area than Great Britain. However, despite all this space, Guyana has a population of under one million and the majority of these people live along the country's coastline. As a result, Guyana's interior is almost untouched by human development and nature has been left to thrive. 80% of Guyana is covered by rainforest, which in this day and age is an incredible statistic.

While tropical rainforest is the dominant environment in Guyana, the country has a unique mix of ecosystems including savannah, wetlands, mighty rivers, mangroves and mountains. This combination of habitats supports remarkable biodiversity, that few other countries in the world can match.

Guyana is home to over 200 species of mammal, more than 800 species of bird, in excess of 300 species of reptile and an astonishing 6,500 species of plant. Among this spectacular flora and fauna are some of South America's most iconic animals including black caiman, giant anteater, giant river otter, arapaima, harpy eagle, capybara and green anaconda.

Guyana really is South America's undiscovered paradise, so why not join us on this extensive small group tour and immerse yourself in an incredible, unspoilt wilderness?
