Your travel group consists of a minimum of five people for the Guyana jungle.
Upon your arrival in Guyana, our local tour guide welcomes you to Guyana and accompanies you from the airport to your hotel in Georgetown. At the hotel you will enjoy local hospitality that includes delicious Creole dishes in a comfortable environment of international standards complete with air conditioning and all modern comforts.
After a bit of relaxation, the group makes a brief and pleasant tour of the city of Georgetown visiting various points of interest such as the city's colonial architecture buildings and its forts that reveal the historic presence of Dutch, British and Portuguese.
Georgetown today speaks mainly English, although Spanish and Portuguese are spoken. It is also a cultured city with its colonial buildings. By cultural standards it is a Caribbean city, but geographically it is a South American municipality since it is located at the tip of South America.
This is where the real jungle tour begins. The group gets up early to have breakfast and join the land transport accompanied by the tour guide. We leave Georgetown by minibus or van to enter a jungle path full of lush rainforest that takes us to the mining town of Mahdia and then to Pamala Landing, small settlements along the way.
Along the way we will stop for lunch in a small village called '58 Village '. Here you can enjoy a delicious meal in a restaurant in the local jungle.
At Pamala Landing the group will camp overnight. You can take the opportunity to relax and enjoy the natural environment, bathe in the nearby stream with its natural spring water before dinner is served by your tour guide.
Early in the morning the group continues to reach the Waratuk Falls. Again we will set up the camp for the rest of the day and leave early the next morning. We will also visit the Great Kaieture Fall
We enter the Kaieture national park at the foot of Mount Kaieture, where we will rest to refresh ourselves and bathe in the nearby river before starting the steep climb up to the top of the falls.
While our excursion continues this time up the steep side of the mountain, resting along the way and finding time for some photos. Within a few hours you will climb to the top of the mountain and admire the majestic nature of the highest drop-shaped waterfalls in the world. The evening camp is set in the exceptional beauty of the jungle atmosphere in the Kaieture national park. Dinner is served for dinner.
There are many forms of life in the National Park that you will experience. On this day we will tour around the waterfalls and in the Kaieture national park.
