Reasons to Visit
Admire the British and Dutch architecture of Georgetown, the huge St George Cathedral and the Museum of Guyana, with excellent Guyanese painting and sculpture.
Explore the gold and diamond fields near Bartica, at the junction of the Essequibo and Mazaruni rivers. There are also a number of Amerindian settlements in the area, whose residents grow crops for the mining camps.
Revel in the spray of South America's most majestic waterfalls. Not many waterfalls match the height and volume of water of Kaieteur Falls, part of the Kaieteur National Park.
Visit Karanambu, home of Diane McTurk, widely known for her work in rehabilitating orphaned, giant river otters to the wild. The Karanambu Lodge eco-tourism resort preserves the delicate ecosystem of the Rupununi savannahs.
Take a wildlife-viewing excursion to a local ranch in the Rupununi Savannah, a vast area of grassland, termite mounds and forested hills. Look out for the elusive jaguar, harpy eagle and many bird varieties.
Iwokrama is the international centre for rainforest conservation and development. Encompassing 3,700 square kilometres of pristine tropical rainforest, visitors can view the rainforest canopy from observation decks and suspension bridges at nearby Iwokrama Canopy walkway.
