This tour is the perfect introduction to bird and wildlife watching on the South American continent – in Guyana you can expect to find wonderful waterfalls, together with freshwater marshes teeming with birds and mammals,

On this trip we visit the coastal plain, rare sand-belt forest, rainforests of the interior and Rupununi savannah close to the Brazilian border, including travel on small watercourses and two great rivers, the Demerara and the Essequibo. Later in the trip we will watch jungle birds in the tree-tops from a canopy walkway, and also search the forest for gatherings of colourful male Guianan cock-of-the-rock. Add giant river otter, jaguar and a multitude of exotic birds and mammals and you have a fantastic all round neo-tropical naturalist experience.
