Globetrotter “Travelling Ted” explores unknown Guyana

The Guyana Rupunini Oasis is an economical an interesting option to stay along theGeorgetown-Lethem Road. While there you can hike the Panorama Nature Trail and it is also close to the Iwokrama Rainforest, Lethem, and the Pakaraima Mountains.

There are not many adventure travel opportunities in this part of the world, so a one day stay is all that is necessary. It is a great place to stay in between Iwokrama and Lethem.

In my last post, I described how I felt like an ass for not doing adequate research on Guyana and coming to a place that was not exactly my cup of tea. Eighty percent of Guyana is supposedly covered in rainforests, and I came to Guyana to see rainforests, yet I managed to fly straight to the only spot in the interior not covered by rainforests.

The Rupunini is a wonderful place, and I could really imagine learning to love the place if I stayed there long enough and had time to spend there. However, I wanted rainforests, snakes, and birds, and they are found here, but not in the abundance that they are found in areas like Iwokrama and Kaieteur Falls.
