- Don't think you're going to see much in the way of wildlife on this trip, except for birds - Explore really shouldn't advertise as a wildlife trip. Very long (12 hrs) transfer inland from Georgetown in cramped vehicle totally unsuitable for unmade roads. Main highlight was the Kaitur Falls which was an expensive extra so not strictly part of the tour at all. Altogether a rather disappointing trip. Lots of walking through forest with little to see. In Guyana at least the locals still hunt in the forest and my guess is that any mammals reasonably close to the villages have been eaten long ago. The idea of this trip - huge expanses of untouched forest - turned out to be rather more exciting than the reality.

Thank you for your feedback on this trip, Nicholas. I’m sorry that you were disappointed with your experience on this occasion, especially as you did not get to see as much wildlife as you’d hoped. As I’m sure you can appreciate, when dealing with true wildlife viewing, there is no guarantee that you will have a sighting every day as there is always an element of luck involved. In addition, the visit to Kaieteur falls is an optional extra, this is because the flight required needs a minimum number of passengers to run – so this is not a visit that we can guarantee and why it is not included as part of the itinerary.
