Welcome Centre and Souvenir Shop

A small museum with a picture gallery and signage about the history of Kaieteur Falls can be found alongside the meeting pavilion close to the airstrip. This is a good spot to get familiar with the exotic flora and fauna that populates the park, as well as the history and facts about Kaieteur National Park. A small souvenir shop offers a number of crafts.

Getting To And Around

Bartica is best connected to Georgetown by a one-hour road trip to Parika followed by boat. Some choose to take 4X4 vehicles the entire route for an adventurous ride.


The closest airports to Bartica is Bartica Airstrip, but it is seldom used. You will likely arrive in Georgetown through Cheddi Jagan International Airport or via the Eugene F. Correia International Airport (Ogle) both of which serve flights from around the world and within Guyana.


A long route wending through Linden, Rockstone and Sharima Village is the lesser used, but more adventurous route to take. When taking this avenue, you will have to hop on a ferry to cross the Essequibo River for a small part of the journey.


This is the best way to get to Bartica. There is a robust public transportation system by the river, made up of ferries, private tour boats and speed boats. Parika is one of the major ports that connect Bartica to the outskirts of Georgetown.
