The travel group arrives in Guyana and is escorted from the airport by a local representative of AMAZON JUNGLE TOUR to your hotel in the capitol city of Georgetown, Guyana.
After a delicious local lunch and some relaxation we will do a brief tour of Georgetown in the cool of the afternoon sun to the points of interest before leaving the next day for the border of Guyana and Brazil.
Today we rise early for a hearty breakfast and prepare ourselves for the journey to Brazil.
The group leaves Georgetown by bus for a one and a half days ride through the jungle road, with it's thick green forest on both sides, stopping at a few jungle villages for a brief rest and to eat.
We continue through the Rupunnuni Savannah which is a vast open land mass with lots of mountain ranges in the back ground. There you will find local Indian villages along the way and even Latin American style cowboys working on their ranches. This part of Guyana is a mix of Latin culture.
When we arrive at the border town of Lethem you will have an opportunity to tour the area in the late afternoon and early night observing the awesome sunset and the night stars that seem to hang just above your head. Then enjoy a local meal before retiring for the night.
We prepare to do a fifteen minute walk to cross the Takutu river that separates Guyana from Brazil, by simply walking across the Takutu bridge in to Brazil, when we get to it.
When the group crosses the border in to Brazil we chick in with the Brazilian immigration and then board the bus to the city of Manaus. This bus ride takes about fourteen hours however but you will not feel board since that the buses are very modern with air-condition and television access. And the sceneries of the Brazilian countryside is very nice with it's Spanish style houses and ranches and mountain ranges and wide rivers.
On this day the group arrives in Manaus to the hotel.
In the jungle we will explore the area by hiking along trails and canoe sailing on the river.
You will have the chance to bird watch go visit with the Pink Dolphins and at night alligator sighting.
