Rainforest & Rivers - Birdwatching
Join us on a birdwatching tour through the Guyana's lush and fascinating rainforest and along its impressive network of rivers.
Guyana offers birdwatchers a fabulous richness of wildlife that is unsurpassable by any of its South American neighbours.
While experiencing Guyana's natural beauty we dedicate ourselves to bird-watching in a country that offers a great variety of different species.
The difference in landscape from rainforest to Savannah create a wide variety of bird species, keeping an eye out for birds such as the Pearl Kite, the White-tailed and Savannah Hawk, the Rufous-crowned Elaenia, the Black Manakin and the Red-shouldered Tanager. And of course the colourful, bright orange Guianan Cock-of-the Rock.
Red-bellied Macaws, Sapphire-rumped Parrotlets, the strikingly beautiful Point-tailed Palmcreeper, the Grey-winged Trumpeter and the Double-banded Pygmy-Tyrant await in the forests, while Sungrebe and Sunbittern occur along the streams. Birdwatching in mature tropical forest brings close species like the Red-fan Parrot, Tawny-bellied Screech-Owl, Racket-tailed Coquette and any of more than 20 species of antbirds.
However, not only birds will draw your attention. Giant river otters, tapirs and black spider monkeys are often spotted along the banks of the Burro Burro River, or even an elusive jaguar.
You will be staying at lodges near the coast in pristine forest settings, and in the south, several ranches offer comfortable quarters close to varied and interesting savannah habitats. Camping expeditions to truly remote areas of the interior make for a unique nature experience.
