At a Glance

Part Caribbean, part Amazonian, part mountain highland — Guyana is South America's little-known biological wonder. It is where the Guiana Shield (one of four pristine tropical rainforests left in the world) converges with the Amazon Basin, creating myriad ideal habitats for birds — and birders. Join expert birders to search among the more than 800 species of birds in savannahs and tropical rainforests, and get a rare glimpse of life in remote Amerindian villages deep in the interior.
