Welcome to
Johnson View Nature Trail

Located just off of the first viewpoint, the Johnson View Nature Trail is a short trail where your guides may help you to spot the vibrant cock-of-the-rock. This is a famous spot for them to roost (rest or sleep). If you are lucky you can also spot the tiny Kaieteur golden rocket frog hiding in one of the nearby tank bromeliads.

Timings: Dawn to dusk (depending on how your tour is scheduled); Entry Fee: included in your landing fee

Getting To And Around

Bartica is best connected to Georgetown by a one-hour road trip to Parika followed by boat. Some choose to take 4X4 vehicles the entire route for an adventurous ride.


The closest airports to Bartica is Bartica Airstrip, but it is seldom used. You will likely arrive in Georgetown through Cheddi Jagan International Airport or via the Eugene F. Correia International Airport (Ogle) both of which serve flights from around the world and within Guyana.


A long route wending through Linden, Rockstone and Sharima Village is the lesser used, but more adventurous route to take. When taking this avenue, you will have to hop on a ferry to cross the Essequibo River for a small part of the journey.


This is the best way to get to Bartica. There is a robust public transportation system by the river, made up of ferries, private tour boats and speed boats. Parika is one of the major ports that connect Bartica to the outskirts of Georgetown.

Shopping and Nightlife

First Avenue

Roam First Avenue to see local stalls with fruits, vegetables, groceries, clothes, utensils and generally anything one might need. Since the town services the mining community, the street is always bustling with action as jeeps load up to head into the more remote communities and travellers pass through on their way to explore more of Guyana.
