Kanuku Mountain Range
As one of the wildest and remotest regions of Guyana, the Kanuku Mountains amp up the adventure quotient on several accounts. The forest is home to 60% of all bird species found in Guyana and over 150 mammals – a single stop for your wildlife curiosity. Arresting sights guaranteed in this vibrant protected land include harpy eagles, jaguars, armadillos, giant river otters, giant anteaters and a healthy population of arapaima in the rivers. It’s no wonder the Wapishanas named the region ‘Kanuku’, which simply translates to ‘rich forest.’ Kanuku is one of the last remaining intact Amazonian habitats and one of the most beautiful places in South America.
