Welcome to
Surama Rainforest

Surama Village Eco-lodge lies at the edge of the rainforest amid the golden savannahs of the North Rupununi at the foothills of the Pakaraima Range of Mountains. This is one of Guyana’s best conserved, high biodiversity hotspots. The largely primary rainforest along the Burro Burro River that skirts the village is protected by the local community of Makushi People. Surama Eco-lodge was established in 2004 with a vision to “develop, own and manage a community-based ecotourism business by constructively using the natural resources and traditional culture in a socially appropriate manner.” After 15 years, it is an integral part of Guyana’s nature and wildlife travel circuit. The community-led enterprise unites the community to protect their natural resources and use them to generate sustainable livelihoods. Conservation awareness and natural resource management practices at the household level are made through environmental awareness outreach programs. This results in each household making a conscious effort to reduce exploitation of the forests for food, fuel and building materials, ensuring that the integrity of the ecosystem is preserved.
