Possessing some of the most dramatic rainforest and mountain scenery in the tropics, English-speaking Guyana is one of the last true wildernesses on the planet. Travelling in Guyana may not be as comfy as elsewhere in the Americas. However, the experiences that await the adventurous traveller hold few equals. Guyana has incredible, pristine rainforests, open savannahs and spectacular waterfalls (the Kaieteur Falls are four times higher than Niagara Falls), not to mention vast populations of exotic wildlife and birdlife. It is one of South America's smallest countries, situated on its north east coast, and bordered by Suriname to the south east, Venezuela to the west, Brazil to the south and the Atlantic to the west.
