Travel to Guyana’s pristine rainforest to see abundant wildlife, mighty waterfalls and a unique fusion of cultures with our tours.
Guyana is a truly unspoilt and relatively undiscovered paradise, perfect for Amazon holidays.
Guyana is also home to the world’s highest single-drop waterfall, the breathtaking Kaieteur Falls.
This is true adventure travel. There are few roads and most journeys are on foot, by boat or small light aircrafts that pass over the vast forests of Guyana.
But there’s always a big Guyanese welcome awaiting you at the remote eco-lodges and wilderness camps.
Fingers crossed, you may even spot the elusive jaguar in a country with such a healthy population your chances are good.
Grab your binoculars for some fantastic bird-watching – the birdlife is spectacular.
Other animals you may see include giant anteaters, sloths, monkeys and many birds. Harpy Eagles populate the area, too.
There are also visits to local communities who live in the rainforest, waiting to welcome you and show you their traditional way of life.
Below you will find a few of the many attractions Guyana has to offer for your holiday.
Get up into the trees like monkeys at Atta Lodge, for some up close and personal wildlife viewing.
The major attraction here is a 154m/505ft long canopy walkway, with four platforms some up to 30m into the canopy.
An array of birds and animals you struggle to see from the forest floor soon zoom into view.
Among these are endangered and protected species such as the jaguar, the bullet wood tree, greenheart and the waramadan (endemic in Guyana only to the Iwokrama Forest).
The lodge provides comfortable accommodation with 8 private rooms, three home-cooked meals per day, and ample opportunities to explore the surrounding rainforest by foot, canoe, or 4X4.
You’ll need to keep quiet in your kayak as you help researchers from Caiman House search and tag black caiman at night time.
By staying here, you’ll get an inside look at the work of those trying to protect this endangered species.
You can help to collect the data of any captured caiman – some reaching up to 12 feet in length! – before they are released back into the wild.
Caiman House is once-in-a-lifetime and thrilling part to any tour of Guyana, especially for wildlife enthusiasts who can also look out for snakes, frogs, bird spiders and more

The adventurous side was challenging on occasions which made their trip even more memorable.
All arrangements ran smoothly, so thank you for efforts in organising the trip.

The holiday was great, fantastically organised beforehand and during, and everything went to plan. All the guides and hosts were welcoming and a lot of them went out of their way to accommodate our requests.
If Andean Trails go to my next destination, I shall be using them.
