BACK TO NATURE
After an exhilarating travel experience? In Guyana, you can explore untouched jungle on foot, travel along thrilling river rapids, cross vast golden savannahs in a 4X4 and much more.
At the top of your list should be a helicopter trip to Mount Roraima, which sits within the Pakaraima Mountains, one of Guyana’s four majestic mountain ranges. Soaring 9,200ft above sea level and shrouded in clouds, flying over it will make you feel on top of the world. If you prefer to explore the mountains on foot, however, then you should hike Mount Awarmie in the Rupununi region. Its forested slopes are home to a wealth of rainforest birds and other wildlife.
Another must-see is Kaieteur Falls, one of the world’s highest and most powerful single-drop waterfalls – it’s almost five times taller than Niagara Falls. And intrepid travellers shouldn’t leave without visiting the Iwokrama Rainforest or the Rupununi Savannah, both of which are largely untouched by humans.
