One of the last frontiers of Latin America is the English speaking nation of Guyana. As one of the most bio-diverse countries in the world, Guyana is the ideal destination if you are a wildlife lover. The unchartered forests of Guyana are home to over 800 species of bird, numerous insects, reptiles and mammals, including the Neotropical big five – the jaguar, giant river otter, giant ant eater, black caiman and the harpy eagle.

Kuoni Insider

For me Guyana is the most unique place I’ve been to, untouched by mass tourism, it is just you and the wildlife. The people are so proud and welcoming and each place feels like home for the few days you’re staying at the lodge.
