Guyana, not to be mixed up with French Guiana, is a small country (formerly a British colony), between Suriname, Brazil and Venezuela, in the far north of South America. Certainly not a normal destination for tourists, but it offers different landscapes with impressive waterfalls (Kaieteur Falls, 240m high and 100m wide), jungle and savannah. Because of the diverse landscapes there live many different animal species including Jaguars and Tapirs (unfortunately I have not seen any of them), many birds (Cock-of-the-rock) and the rare giant otter. I spent just three days there, but I want to go back one day. There's so much to discover in this very pristine country.
