Day-by-day itinerary for 'Kaieteur Falls'


Kaieteur Falls

You are collected from your hotel in Georgetown for an early morning flight to Kaieteur, landing at an air-strip a short walk from the falls. You follow a forest trail and emerge onto a promontory below the falls - with fantastic views of the whole of its entire width and height as the massive curtain of water plunges giddyingly into its gorge far below. You can approach with care right to the edge of the bare rock above the falls – with no safety railings, no nothing. You return by air to Georgetown in the afternoon, with a transfer for your hotel and an overnight stay.
