Pakaraima Mountain Safari

The Pakaraima Mountain Safari is an annual event held under the auspices of the Tourism Ministry. This year will be the 9th Safari, scheduled from March 26 – April 2. The eight-day, more-than 600-mile trek in vehicle or motorcycle convoy involves navigating through Guyana’s rugged but beautiful rivers, creeks, mountains, valleys and savannahs while taking advantage of sightseeing attractions, including the Iwokrama Rainforest Canopy, the Amerindian villages of Annai and Surama; the Kurupukari cattle trail, the petroglyphs; the North Rupununi Savannahs, and the ultimate destination on the Ireng River Orinduik Falls.
