Karanambu Trust & Lodge
Karanambu Trust and Lodge  
The Karanambu Trust was set up in 1997 to fulfill Diane's vision of establishing Karanambu as a protected area. We are dedicated to the conservation of the Rupununi savannah and wetlands ecosystem. Karanambu is a nature lovers paradise. We are always so excited to share the experience of its untouched natural beauty in this remote corner of South America.

Settled in 1927 by Tiny McTurk, Karanambu was once a working cattle ranch and Balata collection station. It is now an eco-tourist destination known as The Karanambu Lodge. Karanambu encompasses approximately 110-square miles of savannah, marshy ponds, riparian forest, and a 30-mile stretch of the Rupununi River. The Lodge provides guests with the opportunity to experience the wildlife of Karanambu.

With a bird list of over 600 species, Karanambu is a birdwatcher's paradise. The Lodge also provides excellent viewing opportunities of giant river otters, giant black caiman and giant anteaters. The evening ritual of watching the giant water lily, Victoria amazonica, open is a memorable experience.

Karanambu is also the home of Diane McTurk, conservationist and world-renowned expert on giant otters. Diane's legendary hospitality is extended to every guest, even when Diane is not at home.
