If you’ve travelled South America but want to go further afield, discover Guyana—the continent’s hidden corner. A nature-lover’s paradise and free of typical tourist infrastructure, you’ll encounter mountains, savannah and jungle canopy walkways in search of exotic birds, jaguars and other wildlife. A highlight is Karanambu Ranch, a rehabilitation centre for orphaned giant river otters. And for an immersive experience that few travellers get to know, you’ll visit indigenous communities and encounter a way of life long forgotten by the modern world.
