Botanical Gardens and Zoo
The Zoo in Georgetown, which doubles as a wildlife rescue and rehabilitation centre, gives you the opportunity to get up close to wildlife like jaguar, anaconda, a sloth and even a Harpy Eagle before journeying into the heart of Guyana. For un-caged avian friends, walk along the Botanical Gardens and you could get lucky, spotting some of the 200 species of birds that live in the city. Other enthralling creatures in the park are the manatees that live below the Kissing Bridge on a lake, and the Seven Ponds Monument.
