The best waterfall I have ever seen in my life. The national park is stunning, and there are so many great viewpoints. I highly recommend spending a few nights here so you can avoid crowds and enjoy the falls at different times during the day...More

Kaieteur is really the only publicized tourist destination in Guyana. That said, it's the main destination for a reason! It's absolutely spectacular, if you're a waterfall addict or not. We took a day trip from Georgetown departing from Ogle Airport with Air Services Ltd., and...More

Having just visited Mount Roraima, we didn't think we'd be as impressed by anywhere else so soon. Well Kaitetuer Falls sure managed it. The fall is majestic and as good as everyone says. But our stay here made it even better. We stayed at the...More

I did the falls as part of a package tour, which I highly recommend. There were 3 viewing places, each better than the other. Wonderful photo ops. Very impressive. Not to be missed when in Guyana.

Kaieteur Falls is one of the last remote waterfalls to visit without a crowd. It was way more difficult to get there and back than we thought it would be, but we managed to do it WITHOUT a tour company. (Please note: Dagron tours were...More

So you have 3 options, you can trek there over 3 to 4 days and fly back, you will need to pay the full flight fair as it means a tourist cannot use the outward seat. If you have the time and money, this is...More

These falls are a definite must-see if you're ever in Guyana. After a slightly scary one-hour plane ride from Ogle airport over the vast lushness of the Guyanese landscape, you'll arrive at the small landing strip outside the Kaieteur Falls Visitor Centre. From there you'll...More
