Guyana is an unspoilt wilderness of magnificent natural treasures, including the mighty Kaieteur Falls. Covered by pristine rainforest and vast savannahs, this English-speaking country teems with wildlife including jaguars, giant anteaters, black caimans and a vast array of bird species, as well as rare flora. Georgetown, the coastal capital, features unique Dutch wooden architecture and rum distilleries, while in the interior visitors can stay at remote field stations, Amerindian community-run lodges and cattle ranches.
We have highlighted the standard of accommodation featured on a tour immediately above the tour itinerary.
In some cases, tours include some departures in one category and some in another: you can see and select the different tour types under ‘tour variations’. For these tours, the itinerary is generally the same and just the standard of accommodation varies. However, if there are any variations in the excursions included, these are shown within the itinerary.
Superior: Most Cox & Kings tours fall under this category and are based in 4- or 5-star accommodation, or the best available.
Luxury: These tours will usually feature 5-star de luxe accommodation throughout.
Standard: Simpler in emphasis, these itineraries typically feature 3- and 4-star accommodation throughout.
Discovery: This type of holiday is best suited to the hardier traveller, as it will typically include some quite basic accommodation, possibly longer and rougher road journeys and, in some cases, more arduous activities, such as trekking.
