THINGS TO SEE AND DO
Wildlife Spotting, Birding & Hiking
Staggering statistics of 2,300 species of animals and more than 6,000 plants in the region, makes this one of the most exciting places for nature enthusiasts. The Kanuku’s cool climate makes it the ideal home for up to 50% of bird species and 70% of the mammal species of the country. The forest offers hundreds of nature trails which are best explored with local guides who can point you to roosting sites and share their stories about growing up in this awesome landscape.
Home to Wapishana group of Indigenous Peoples, the villages in Kanuku are a reflection of local life in the wilderness. Unassuming local culture, deeply rich in traditions and sense of community offer an immersive learning experience.
