Guyana Tours Company

For over 20 years, Wilderness Explorers Guyana, a Guyana tours company, has been working at the crossroads of adventure travel and community tourism. Not from the sidelines or behind a desk, but on the ground, in the jungle and on the boats. Getting their feet dirty and seeing everything first-hand. Tourism isn’t just their business – it’s their life and their handcrafted itineraries prove it.

Over the years the partnerships they have developed in the field aren’t just suppliers in the traditional sense: they are deeply involved with the development of the lodges, tours, guides, training programs, and attractions that draw adventurous souls to this part of the world. Back in 1999 Wilderness Explorers Guyana was one of the first Guyana tours company to embrace the now-fashionable idea of community tourism, partnering with the Amerindian Makushi village of Surama in Guyana to provide marketing and administrative support for that country’s first indigenously-operated eco lodge. Today, they continue to work with lodges and regional consortiums with tourism development aspirations. Hand-in-hand they are building opportunities for economic growth that don’t rely on resource extraction or the mass-market.

They know that tour companies are increasingly looked upon as unnecessary middlemen in a world where the internet connects everyone with marvellous ease. And, no doubt, someone with ample time and patience could organise their journey independently. But they know that sometimes you want to spend less time researching and more time travelling. If that’s you, then Wilderness Explorers Guyana can vastly simplify your trip planning, get you into the best (and often least-known) lodges, prioritise your activity list, and set you up for an unforgettable getaway.

Through partnerships and awareness through tourism Wilderness Explorers supports a number of Conservation projects such as:

The Iwokrama Rainforest is a vast wilderness of one million acres.  This protected area was established in 1996 as the Iwokrama International Centre for Rainforest Conservation and Development. The Iwokrama Forest is in the heart of one of four last untouched tropical forests of the world – The Guiana Shield of North-Eastern South America. Iwokrama was established as a living laboratory for tropical forest management because the unsustainable utilisation of these forests will result in the extinction of half the world’s plant and animal species and unknown changes to global climate. This is a protected area with a difference – the full involvement of people.

Black Alligator Research Project House is a combination guest-lodge and education center focused on research and conservation projects along the nearby Rupununi River. The black alligator research project is a convergence of professional herpetology and local knowledge. Its immediate purpose is to develop a full understanding of black alligator natural history and ecology in Guyana. Guests can observe black alligators capture and assist in data collection while black alligators are weighed, measured, sexed, and tagged.

The Guyana Mangrove Restoration Project is funded by a partnership between the Government of Guyana and the European Union. The objective of the project is to seek the commitment of Guyanese towards the protection and development of sustainable mangrove forests. The project commenced activities in February 2010 and is working in the areas of administrative capacity development, research, community development and capacity building, mangrove restoration (replanting), monitoring and awareness and education.
