Nature & Wildlife
Guyana’s pristine landscapes are waiting to be discovered. Its virgin rainforests, innumerable waterfalls, vast open savannahs, mountain ranges, and extensive river systems are home to rich biodiversity found in few places on the planet. Due to its pristine nature, its ecosystems are able to sustain vibrant populations of some of the world’s giant species like the jaguar, giant anteater, giant river otter, black caiman, anaconda and the arapaima. As a result, it is often referred to as “The Land of the Giants” by intrepid wildlife enthusiasts. With more than 820 bird species, Guyana is a bird watcher’s paradise as well. A few star birds that are relatively easy to access include the Harpy Eagle, Guianan Cock-of-the-rock, and the Hoatzin.
