Welcome to
The Demerara River Region

Originating in the thick central rainforests of Guyana, the Demerara River flows over 340 kilometres north before it spills into the Atlantic Ocean. This is the smallest of Guyana’s main river systems, and it is one of the busiest as it is used to transport goods to Georgetown from abroad and to Linden upstream. Tan in colour, the river is full of silt that extends far into the deep blue ocean. Along its route, it channels into different tributaries and creeks, creating islands that are inhabited and completely uninhabited. The banks of the river ring with bird calls and local life are a mere sample of the rich inland biodiversity.
