Accommodation: Our hotels and lodges vary in quality but all are within easy reach of the areas we wish to bird. Most of them have private bathrooms but at some lodges, electricity is only available for a few hours in the evening via generator. At Atta Rainforest Lodge facilities are shared. Hot water may not be available at some lodges, and you will find showers are set at 'tropical temperature'.
Tour Code: This is a standard birding tour with all day birding. No particular strenuous walks are planned and birding is mostly from open flat roads, wide tracks and boats. The walk at Turtle Mountain is the most strenuous although we do take it slow and in its steepest parts there are handrails to help climb the last few forest steps. To see a good amount of endemics and specialities you need to be prepared for full days, so we will generally start early and either have an early breakfast or return for breakfast. Lunches will be either picnic or at the lodge depending on our schedule. We can expect all types of weathers from warm and hot to cool and showery, so please be prepared for this. Several days we have the opportunity to relax for a few hours during the heat of midday. A very important factor in running a tour to Guyana is to use local operators and local guides as your money will go to the local guides and communities.
