South America’s Best Kept Secret
Discover a land filled with wonders on this exciting journey to Guyana and Suriname
With unspoilt rainforests, sandy beaches, sweeping savannahs and meandering rivers, it is a surprise that Guyana is remained one of the few places of the planet to offer a truly authentic travel experience.
The culture itself is a joyful mix of people. Throughout the country you can see Indian, African and European influences due to the Dutch and British colonial influence on the Caribbean. The colonial influences can especially be seen in the architecture in the capital city, Georgetown.
Nature-lover’s will enjoy the unparalleled wildlife-viewing opportunities from sea-turtle nesting grounds along the country's north coast to monkeys and jaguars in the rainforest, and giant anteaters down in the southern savannahs, Guyana's natural wonders are spectacular. Guyana is also home to the world’s largest single-drop waterfall by water volume – Kaieteur Falls.
