Big Game Safari
There is so much more to Guyana than its "many waters". This little known, undiscovered, natural world is also home to many of the largest species of birds and wildlife known to man. It is home to the giant anteater, the giant otter and the mighty Harpy Eagle. Guyana is also the place to find mighty rivers, such as the Essequibo, which is 21 miles wide and has one of the tallest sheer drop waterfalls in the world — the Kaieteur Falls. This tour was designed for people looking to experience the raw beauty of nature. The trip focuses on wildlife safaris that take you on a journey into Guyana's deepest jungles, pristine rainforests, vast savannahs and mountains. Visit Guyana's wildlife habitats and come away with a feeling of wonder.
