Embark on a thrilling Jungle Wildlife Tour in Guyana deep into the jungles of Guyana with our indigenous guides and wildlife experts. Starting from the small community of Surama, the team will navigate the Burro Burro River, overcoming rapids and obstacles to reach a remote area seldom visited by humans. In this natural environment, the team will set up camp and spend their days tracking and observing the diverse wildlife that still thrives in the region.
Surama, a community situated within a small savannah inside the Iwokrama rainforest, offers unparalleled access to the primary rainforest. The Jungle Wildlife Tour in Guyana will travel along the Burro Burro River up to the Kaiwanparu Creek mouth, focusing on spotting the incredible wildlife hidden within this region. The area is relatively secluded and primarily used for tourism, so the animals here roam freely.
The Kaiwanparu Creek will be explored on foot, allowing one to discover ancient petroglyphs left by the village’s ancestors. This trip is ideal for those passionate about wildlife and photography, as there will be ample opportunities to capture images of snakes, caimans, and even larger mammals.
You can tailor the Jungle Wildlife Tour in Guyana to suit participants’ preferences and fitness levels. Options range from learning to set up camp and participating in camp life to adding extra staff to carry equipment and set up camp at an additional cost. At a minimum, guests should be able to carry themselves, a small backpack, and their camera kit while walking over moderately challenging terrain.
Transportation to and from Surama is not included but can be added from Georgetown (flight + vehicle) or Lethem (vehicle) at an additional cost. Alternatively, it is possible to travel by local bus for around 100 USD per person one way from either Georgetown or Lethem, but this must be arranged directly by an external provider.
If this trip appeals to you and you have additional time to spare, consider exploring the extended version of this adventure for an even more immersive experience. The Buro Burro Canoe expedition.
