Another amazing birding and wildlife spot in Guyana. This is the Iwokrama Canopy Walkway! It was a rainy day for us but we still managed to see some lovely birds and a three toed Sloth.
Guyana rightly deserves its reputation as one of the top birding and wildlife destinations in South America. Guyana is a small English speaking South American Country resided on the Atlantic Coast east of Venezuela and west of Suriname. Our pristine habitats stretch from the protected Shell Beach and Mangrove forest along the northern coast across the vast untouched rainforest to the wide open savannah of the Rupununi in the south. Guyana hosts more than 850 different species of birds covering over 70 bird families and over 45 must see Guianan Shield endemic species that is more easy to see here than any other Country in South America.
These species range from the outrageous and stunning Guianan Cock-of-the-Rock, Harpy Eagle, Rufous-throated, White-plumed and Wing-barred Antbird, Capuchinbird, Gray-winged Trumpeter and the Rufous winged-ground Cuckoo. Blood-colored Woodpecker, Rufous Crab-Hawk, Guianan Red-Cotinga, White-winged Potoo, Black Curassow, Sun Parakeet, Red Siskin, Rio-Branco Antbird, and the Dusky Purpletuft are just some of many birding highlights that can be seen in this amazing Country.

Heaven on Earth. This is the mighty Kaieteur Falls. Kaieteur Falls is the largest single drop water fall in the World. Located on the Potaro River in the Kaieteur National Park, it sits in a section of the Amazon rainforest .
Number of drops: 1
Longest drop: 741′
Average width: 371 feet/113 metres
Did you know: Kaieteur Falls are five times higher than Niagara Falls, twice as high as Victoria Falls in Africa and - thanks to its combination of height and volume - is one of the world's most powerful falls.
On our trips, we target the outrageous Guianan Cock-of-the-Rock the lek in the forest surrounding Kaieteur. Our guest also have the opportunity to observe one of the fastest flying birds in the world, the Orange-breasted Falcon! Plus breathtaking views of White-collared, white-tipped and White-chinned Swifts as they fly behind the water fall. Not forgetting the beautiful Golden rocket-Frog that spends its entire life cycle living in the giant tank bromeliad plant around this thunderous water fall.
Accessing Kaieteur is only 45 minutes flight from Georgetown Guyana. Our expert captains allow all passengers to view and talk pictures of the falls before landing at this GEM. After 2 or 3 hours on the ground, you can either continue to any of the interior lodges or head back to the city.
One of the things that makes this trip so special is the fact that you're completely in the middle of nowhere without any cell signal and just endless of beautiful rainforest in table top mountains for as far as your eyes can see.
