It is not easy to get to this falls but no visit to Guyana should miss this. Book a service that uses the local park guides when you get there; they are very knowledgeable. I used Air Service that supports lots of Eco causes. Booking with them can be a pain due to payment issues. Once that's done, they are... More

Must see. out of this world experience! Really magical place. We did one day tour. Flying there took about 1 hour. our pilot did flyover 2x. It was breathtaking,not overcrowded like other waterfalls, only handful of people. To get there is only very short, very wet walk through the jungle, puddles of water, surrounded by cool, humid jungle air and... More

This is my second trip to Kaieteur. If it is nice you do it twice...so i decided to spend overnight. My only regret is that I did not spend two nights instead of one. Just being there when all the tourist left and having the place for yourself is really magical and a "feeling" you will remember forever. I highly... More

Kaieteur falls is beautiful! It is fairly pricey, but you take a small plane for an hour into the Guyanese interior to get there and another hour back. You get the opportunity to see three different lookout options, each one closer than the previous until you reach the top of the falls. Overall, it is beautiful and definitely a must-see!

One of the most spectacular journeys and site in the rain forest. It appears in all it's majesty out of nowhere after flying over the canopy of the rain forest!

Stay away from the edge as their is no barrier. It is interesting since we were told not to walk with any insect repellant there is some vegetation that is natural to the environment that prevent mosquitos and other insects from breeding

Like most of the Guyana's attractions too expensive! But beautiful. I went to the falls by plane on a one-day visit like most people do. I did it directly with the airlines, which made me save maybe 40 usd compared to a tour. I liked it but it was a bit fast, I mean enough time to visit the fall... More

We flew here from Baganara Resort and then back to Georgetown. Others came directly from Georgetown. it is well worth the effort. Usually the plane flies over the falls then comes to land at the ranger station where you get a ranger to take you to the view points. We stopped at three view points starting with the furthest away... More

I went to see Kaieteur Falls February 23rd 2015. I paid 190 USD for the trip. Took a small plane with about 10 passengers including the pilot. Didn't get to see the falls from the plane on my way there or back due to the low visibility caused by the rain clouds. We landed on a small airplane strip and... More
