The Wildtales Inc.

About Us

So you would like to know more about us? The Wildtales Inc., where adventure and learning go hand in hand. Our mission? To offer the finest jungle survival courses and jungle expeditions available, set amidst the untouched expanse of the Guyanese jungle. Our secret weapon? Guides native to the region, equipped with a lifetime of knowledge and secrets about the jungle.

Guyana is a rare gem in a world increasingly encroached upon by roads, cities, and populations. This unique country hosts vast tracts of virtually untouched rainforests where you can truly experience the wild.

Encompassing nearly 75% of the country, Guyana’s rich jungle landscape is a haven for diverse wildlife. Jaguars, tapirs, anacondas, giant anteaters, and much more cohabit in this dreamlike environment. In choosing us, you select an immersive experience amidst all this and beyond.

This might seem simple, but in a world with roads, cities, and populations invading even the most remote corners of the world. Guyana is among the few nations left in the world that still to this day hold the opportunity of offering almost untouched rainforest.

Sustainable Tourism

Sustainable tourism is at the core of our offerings. By choosing The Wildtales Inc., you contribute to preserving one of the world's most vulnerable ecosystems.
