Located on the Atlantic Coastline and bordering the countries of Brazil, Suriname and Venezuela, Guyana boasts one on the largest tracks of undisturbed rainforests in the world, accounting for more than 83 % of total land mass, due largely to its inaccessibility and centuries old civilizations of our Amerindian peoples, whom as custodians have lived on the land, relying on the rainforest and its’ rivers for food, medicine, shelter, weapons, and spiritual guidance.

The idea to establish a tour company arose out of my many travels to the remote areas of Guyana (formerly British Guiana) and my interaction with the indigenous people, their cultures, belief and general way of life. This and my work with the National Parks Commission for over 10 years, which included day to day operational responsibilities for the Kaieteur National Park, Guyana’s first legally protected area and premier tourist destination, fueled my love and appreciation for nature and adventure.
Over the years, this love and appreciation has grown into a passion, a passion to share with the world, one of the truly undiscovered nature paradises, Guyana “the Amazon Adventure” and the importance of ecological balance. Today, with your help, that passion is about to materialize.
I therefore encourage you to experience, the rich biodiversity, tranquility, beauty, serenity and cultural diversity of Guyana and the Amazon Region.
