Our Comprehensive Guyana birding tour explores some of the last relatively unexplored wildernesses on Earth. The variety of pristine habitats, from lowland rainforests and the cool savannas of Surama Mountain to the waterways of the famed Rupununi and Kaieteur, one of the world’s highest waterfalls, ensures that this magical destination has something to offer every birder. Locations we visit include Iwokrama, Atta and Surama Lodges. Here we search for Guianan Cock-of-the-rock, Sun Parakeet, Capuchinbird, Red Siskin, Rio Branco Antbird, Scarlet Ibis, Guianan Red Cotinga and Harpy Eagle, among many birding highlights that can be anticipated. Mammals form a major emphasis of this tour and we can expect species ranging from the amazing Giant Anteater to Giant River Otter and a good chance for Jaguar.

What our clients say about us

Stephan Lorenz
MN, Guyana 2021

Stephan is a star guide. He is fantastic & he deals with any difficulties very well. Most Importantly he gets the clients on the birds. Superb & fun.

Lev Frid
BS, Guyana 2019

Lev Frid did a fine job. He is an excellent spotter, quick with ID's and very good at getting folks on the bird. His enthusiasm was infectious and he has extraordinary knowledge of a wide range of natural history subjects. It's an understatement to say Lev is into snakes ... he's the pied piper of snakes. We saw more snakes in two weeks than all our other trips combined. Lev found them, handled them and explained their natural history ... fascinating.

Forrest Rowland
CT, Guyana

Forrest Rowland, as we suspect you already know, is an outstanding guide. We have traveled with a number of other birding companies and he stands out as superior in all aspects. He is a terrific birding guide... excellent in finding birds on anyone's target list and he is very patient with less hard-core but interested birders in the group. He is well-organized, has infinite energy and enthusiasm and great people skills. You feel well taken care of when on his tour and he respects, helps and educates the local guides. I would highly recommend any tour Forrest is leading.

Forrest Rowland
PR, Guyana

Forrest Rowland is an outrageously skilled guide (I called him the Eagle-sighted Echolocator). Perfect organisation, perfect local guides, what more could one need? And the birding was better than first class. A perfect 10 on all counts!

Lev Frid
AJ & TJ, Guyana 2019

We enjoyed our tour to Guyana. We were particularly impressed with Lev’s enthusiasm and interest in wildlife in general.
