5 Day Trek to Kaieteur Falls
Itinerary
Day 1: First Leg to Kaieteur
You will be picked up early from your hotel this morning for your journey to the gold mining town of Madhia, passing through Linden, another mining town and then continue along a dusty road to Mabura Hills and Konawaruk. The short drive from Madhia to Pamela landing stage on the Potaro River will be your last comfort travel for a few days.

Day 2: Pamela Landing-Amatuk-Waratuk
7:00 a.m. departure by boat for a trip upstream to Amatuk Falls where you can take a quick dip in refreshing river water accompanied by the sound of water gushing down the falls. Afterwards, change to another boat above the falls and continue your river journey to your campsite at Waratuk Falls. Enjoy a 2 to 3 hour hike in the surrounding rainforest and a possible swim in the falls located in the area. Learn about the trees, wildlife and birds from your knowledgeable guide.

Overnight at jungle camps with hammocks


Day 3: Trekking and Camping
After an early breakfast, begin the last leg of the journey—an eight-hour hike from Waratuk Falls to Tukiet and an enchanting overnight camp with refreshing swimming in the Potaro River and a spectacular view of the Kaieteur Gorge. (Meals: breakfast, lunch, dinner)

Day 4: Kaieteur Falls
From Tukiet climb to the top of Kaieteur Falls, a four-hour hike which winds through the mountains and streams to the final stage known as "Oh My God" because of its steep ascent.

At dusk clouds of thousands of swifts gather before plunging into the water of the falls to their rocky nesting sites behind the wall of water. (Meals: breakfast, lunch, dinner)

You may also be lucky to spot the cock of the rock in nearby bushes or along the trails in the park. In the afternoon fly back to Georgetown by plane (Meals: breakfast, lunch)
