Guyana – Discover the beautiful and majestic Kaieteur Falls

The coffee coloured Potaro River thunders down 741 feet into the beautiful and majestic Kaieteur Falls. Kaieteur is one of the highest and most powerful single drop waterfalls in the world – nearly four times higher than Niagara Falls and twice as high as Victoria Falls. It is part of the lush, pristine rainforests of Kaieteur National Park that spans 627 square kilometres around the iconic waterfall. Of the hundreds of bird species found here, the Guianan Cock-of-the-rock, White Collared Swifts, and macaws are often seen in the lush surrounds. Other fascinating flora and fauna include tank bromeliads and the golden frog. The brilliant morpho butterfly can also be spotted in the Kaieteur gorge. The combination of the magnificent waterfall, wildlife, and remote and uncrowded National Park make this one of the top places to visit in Guyana.
