Giant River Otters
Guyana’s River Otter is the largest of the world’s 13 species and reach a length of 1.8m and a weight of up to 32kg. Historically they ranged throughout the tropical lowland rain forests and wetlands of South America but is considered extinct in Argentina and Uruguay. The Guyana river otter is an IUCN red-listed species and is considered endangered.
Harpy Eagle
One of the largest eagles and most powerful birds of prey in the world, the harpy can weigh between 10–20 pounds. They feed primarily on animals that live in the trees (sloths, monkeys, some reptiles and birds).They build huge nests of sticks and branches in the tallest trees and juveniles stay in the parent’s territory for at least a year.
Guianan Cock-of-the-Rock
The Guianan cock-of-the-rock grows to about 30 centimeters in length and weighs about 200-220 grams. They are found in tropical rainforests near its preferred habitat of rocky outcrops. The males plumage is a brilliant orange colour and they engage in spectacular mating dances.
Black Spider Monkeys
The Black Spider Monkey is also known as the Red Faced Monkey. Both names are suitable for it as it has long glossy black fur, a distinct bright pinky reddish face and long, gangly, spidery limbs and tail.
Giant Anteater
The giant anteater can reach 6-8 feet in length and eats up to 30,000 termites a day. They are not aggressive but they can be fierce. A cornered anteater will rear up on its hind legs using its tail for balance, and lash out with its four inch claws able to fight off even a puma or jaguar.
The jaguar is the 3rd largest feline in the Western Hemisphere and is a solitary, opportunistic, a stalk-and-ambush predator at the top of the food chain. They are also a near threatened species and numbers are declining. Threats include habitat loss and fragmentation and they are still frequently killed by humans, particularly in conflicts with ranchers and farmers in South America.
The Anaconda is one of the largest and most powerful snakes in the world and can grow up to 29 feet and weigh up to 500lbs. It kills its prey by constriction and eat a wide variety of prey including fish, birds, a variety of mammals and other reptiles. Particularly large anacondas may even consume large prey such as tapir, deer, capybara and black alligators.
Golden Frog
This endemic tiny golden frog spends its entire life in the Giant Bromeliads. Seen on Kaieteur Falls tours.
The Arapaima is a protected species and one of the largest freshwater fish in the world reaching lengths of more than 10 feet and weighs upward of 400 pounds. They are air-breathing fish that can stay underwater for 10 to 20 minutes and emerge often to breathe with a distinctive coughing noise.
Red Howler
Red Howler Monkeys are easily recognised by their goldish red coat. They range in size from 22 to 36 inches long with tails that are an additional 23 to 36 inches long. Known as the loudest of all monkeys the Howler’s call can be heard from over 3 miles away.

Through partnerships and awareness from 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 the global climate. This is a protected area with a difference – the full involvement of people.

Black Caiman Research Project and Field Station 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.

    We had the best time at the Kaieteur Falls, which we booked with Wilderness Explorers. They were really helpfull and made this experience happen for us, since it was actually fully booked. The trip itself was really amasing, real value for money! I can recommend it to everyone who is visiting Guyana!
