Lethem and Around
Located at the border of Brazil, Lethem is home to the annual action during the Rupununi Rodeo weekend around Easter. The red laterite roads flanked with golden brown savannahs, massive termite hills and the surrounding Kanuku and Pakaraima Mountains make this a hard-to-resist landscape. Use Lethem as a jumping off point to explore working cattle ranches, community conservation areas, and Indigenous Villages. Giant anteaters, Red Siskins, anacondas and a host of other wildlife and birds, are just a few reasons why travellers cannot get enough of the region.
