Journey to 3 of South America’s lesser known travel gems - Guyana, Suriname and French Guiana, collectively known as the Guianas. 90 percent of their territory remains as undeveloped, mostly unexplored jungle!
Be mesmerized by the pristine beauty of Kaieteur Falls (226m or 741ft - 4 times higher than Niagara), the world’s largest single drop waterfall! Journey by motorized longboats to lodges deep in the jungle, meeting local Indigenous villagers and searching for wildlife including giant otters, giant anteaters, sea turtles, river dolphins, monkeys, caiman, a myriad of exotic, colorful birds and if you are lucky, the elusive jaguar!
Our urban and historic exploration includes Georgetown and Paramaribo (UNESCO), the Space Center (European satellite launch site), Camp de la Transportation (slave transit camp) and a catamaran journey to Devil’s Island (overnight on Île Royale) with its infamous prison. This eclectic, exotic off-the-beaten path journey is sure to enthrall and captivate even the well-seasoned adventure traveler!

Accommodations

11 nights at comfortable hotels/lodges with private bathrooms. 8 nights at jungle lodges in Guyana limited rooms as there is very little tourism here. If we have larger groups, we cannot guarantee a single room and private bathroom for every night for paid single supplements, although we will make every effort to accommodate this. Kaieteur Falls lodge is very basic sleeping in hammocks and limited privacy, but the experience is well worth it.
