A must for anyone who likes Waterfalls or spectacular views. But come prepared, do your home work first. Flights to this magnificent place vary upon operators, destination booked at (direct at airport is cheaper, as is booking in the countryside & not the capital city) & whether going of a weekday or weekend. Prices vary from $29,000 GYD (Guyana Dollars)... More

You've read about it, you've seen videos of it, you've heard people rave about it, you've even seen other great falls of the world and you think you have it covered. Then you land there... It is unbelievably good. It is truly majestic. There are 3-4 view points authorised for the public. You start from further away and get closer... More

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
