Welcome to
Rewa River Watershed & Apoteri Tribal Waters

The Rewa River is a tributary of the Rupununi River and is found just upstream of the confluence of the Rupununi and Essequibo Rivers. The headwaters of the Rewa offer travellers a unique opportunity to explore pristine habitat where it is said that the wildlife is not afraid of humans. Few people travel all the way here by river as the journey is difficult. Most travellers opt to fly to Annai or Apoteri and take a shorter river journey from there. Rewa Eco-lodge and Guyana Truly Wild are the only operators that offer the four-week expedition covering more than 200 river miles. Set at the mouth of the river, Rewa Eco-lodge is owned and operated by its namesake indigenous community who protects the watershed. This results in some of the best and most sustainable catch and release sport fishing in Guyana. Spotting giant river otters, black and spectacled caimans and river turtles is relatively easy. There are also opportunities to spot tapirs, jaguars, ocelots, capybaras, giant armadillos, peccaries and seven different species of monkeys.

Located at the confluence of the Rupununi and Essequibo Rivers, Apoteri village is just downstream of Rewa Village. The community conserves its tribal waters along the Essequibo from Yakatu Lagoon to King George Falls for catch and release sport fishing. During the years the fishery has been protected, the size and number of fish have increased significantly. King William Adventures and community members have documented 40 species. Both host visitors for fishing, village tours, birdwatching and more.
