Guyana, not to be confused with French Guyana, is a small country (a former British colony) sandwiched between Suriname, Brazil and Venezuela, in the very north of South America. Certainly not a normal travel destination for tourists, but it offers different landscapes with impressive waterfalls (Kaieteur Falls, 247 m high, almost 100 m wide), a lot of rainforest and savannahs. Due to these different landscapes, it is home to jaguars and tapirs (unfortunately I have not seen either), many birds, including spectacular species such as the Guianan Cock-Of-The-Rock [Rupicola rupicola], anteaters and the rare giant otter. Unfortunately, the time was a little short to dive deeper into the rainforest and savannah, there is still a lot to discover in this pretty pristine, hot country.
