Guyana – The Rupununi

In the south west of Guyana on the eastern shoulder of South America, is the Rupununi. It’s an ideal location where eco-tourists, photographers, artists and bird-watchers can explore Guyana’s natural beauty and discover the wildlife that inhabits the Rainforest, Mountains and Savannah. We travel by road and river deep into the interior and stay at ranches and Amerindian villages where we experience the local culture and enjoy a unique blend of Creole, Guyanese and Brazilian cuisine. At the Iwokrama field station local Amerinidans are being taught the skills of forest rangers and nature guides documenting the species of frogs, snakes and birds that inhabit the region; and at Karanambu, we meet Diane McTurk, conservationist and world-renowned expert on giant otters.
