Delving into Guyana’s History
Embarking on a survival trip in Guyana’s jungle is more than just an adventure; it explores the country’s rich history and culture. Guyana, the home to indigenous tribes like the Lokono and the Kalina, has endured centuries of colonial rule. Initially settled by the Dutch in the late 1500s, Guyana came under British control in the late 1700s. After years of influence and struggle, it finally gained independence on May 26, 1966, and became a republic by February 23, 1970.
Before plunging into your solo survival journey or expedition, we will equip you with all the necessary knowledge, setting you up for a comprehensive jungle experience.
Guyana’s Jungle: A Wildlife Sanctuary
Thanks to its massive expanse of untouched jungle, Guyana is an unparalleled destination for adventure tourism and outdoor survival courses. The jungle, characterised by its minimal human intrusion, boasts diverse wildlife. With over 200 mammal species, 800 bird species, 420 fish species, and over 150 amphibian species, the jungle is a living showcase of biodiversity. Key species include jaguars, harpy eagles, arapaimas, giant anteaters, and anacondas.
Almost 30% of the mammals residing in Guyana’s rainforest are protected under the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES). Conservation of these precious species and their habitats is crucial to their survival. By embarking on our Jungle Survival course, expeditions or tours, you can witness these animals in their natural habitat while learning to survive, explore or tour the deepest parts of the Guyanan rainforest.
The Rupununi Savannah and The Lost World
Beyond the jungles, the Rupununi Savannah paints a contrasting picture of Guyana’s landscape. Once home to the world’s largest cattle ranch, Dadanawa, this vast plain offers an enticing adventure with trail rides, lassoing lessons, creek swimming, and exhilarating off-road ventures.
Also known as “The Lost World,” inspired by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s book, the region is a land of towering tepuis (flat-topped mountains) rising out of the jungle. Home to majestic waterfalls, including the world’s tallest single-drop waterfall, Kaieteur Falls, the region offers exciting opportunities for rappelling and river exploration. Don’t miss our annual kayaking expedition for an unforgettable adventure.
Spanning about 215,000 square kilometres, Guyana, though smaller than Great Britain, is one of the world’s least densely populated countries. Almost 80% of its land is covered by unspoiled tropical rainforest, part of the world’s largest undisturbed rainforest across the Guianas (Guyana, French Guiana, and Suriname). Most of the country’s 750,000 inhabitants reside along the coast, in cities like Georgetown and Bartica, and several Amerindian villages dotting the interior landscape.
Brimming with natural beauty, vibrant culture and rich history, Guyana offers the perfect setting for a thrilling adventure. Whether you’re keen on surviving the jungle or exploring the savannah, we have an experience tailored for you.
