Guyana is 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 and really offers the visiting birde something special. 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 in any of the surrounding countries. Our tour takes in all of the top sites beginning with the Mahaica River where we can see Scarlet Ibis and Hoatzin before checking out the botanical gardens in Georgetown where Blood-coloured Woodpecker and White-bellied Piculet could wel be the highlights. The spectacular Kaieteur Falls are next as we travel to some of the best situated lodges you can imagine – Surame Eco-Lodge, Atta Rainforest Lodge and Iwokrama River Lodge. We will see a huge variety of species that include many highly sought-after rarities such as the spectacular Sun Parakeet and Red Siskin. Zoothera 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 cotingas, parrots, Guianan Cock-of-the Rock, Harpy Eagle, the rarely seen Crested Doradito or Capuchinbird and an endless supply of mouth-watering species then this could be your best trip ever!
