The natural place to find the most exotic birds, a profusion of tropical plants, weird amphibians, rare animals – and nature lovers from all over the world.
Anteaters ranging from the giant to the pygmy, two different types of sloth, armadillos, tamarins, six species of monkeys – you’ll hear the howlers before you see them – giant otters, margay, capuchin, jaguars, pumas, ocelot, porcupine, four different turtles and giant otters.
They’re all waiting for you at Rock View Lodge. Not to mention over 550 different recorded species of birds. That’s 11 types of owl, 20 varieties of parrot – including vivid macaws and multi-coloured Amazons – 38 hawks, falcons, kites and eagles, plus ospreys, vultures, herons…
But this shouldn’t surprise you. Rock View Lodge is on the edge of the vast Rupununi savannah, at the foothills of Guyana’s storied Pakaraima mountains. It’s also surrounded by Iwokrama rainforest and close to unspoiled wetlands with giant lily pads. So it offers a staggering bio diversity.
