Guyana really does offer something special: a small South American country nestled on the Atlantic Coast east of Venezuela and west of Suriname, it is one of the last unexplored wild places on earth yet offers incredible access into a great variety of pristine habitats.
It is also a land of great contrasts as you leave behind the coastal city of Georgetown travelling into the interior, over vast unspoilt forests and incredible isolated waterfalls. The lure of Guyana is its true wilderness and amazing wildlife with many sought after species easier to see here than any of the surrounding countries.
For birders, Guyana has over 815 migrant and resident bird species for visitors to see. Whether you are a beginner or keen birder, watching spectacular species of birds freely flying overhead and whistle will be an unforgettable experience. From the range of parrots, toucans, the harpy eagle, Guiana Cock-of-the-Rock, Blood-Coloured Woodpecker, Crimson Fruit crow, and the Elusive Rufus-Winged Ground-Cuckoo, Guyana is indeed a bird paradise and a place where birders should always visit
We only use the very best local guides and you can rest assured that your money will go to help Guianan-owned lodges and local communities. If you want to see the Guianan Shield Endemics including the Guianan Cock-of-the-Rock, cotingas, parrots, macaws and the bizarre Capuchinbird and an endless supply of mouth-watering species then this could be your best trip ever! We offer the No. 1 trip to this fabulous country.
