Review

In October 2017 i went on the Pakaraima safari. It was amazing and completely beautiful.
It is so remote in part of the rainforest and mountain region bordering Guyana, Brazil and Venezuela.
Be prepared for real nature and rough terrain. This is not for those that suffer pain! The driver and guide were amazing and despite the long journey and remote environment, it was one of the best experiences in my lifetime.
It is second to my safari in Kenya in 2007. However, not many people are aware of Guyana in South America yet it is one of the most unspoilt jungles in the world.
Kaieteur Falls is fantastic and the small 12 seater plane was exciting. Flying over the rainforest for 1 hour in a small plane really helped me see Guyana from above. There is nothing like Kaieteur.
I plan to go again in 2019. Last time we went as far as Kato. This time it looks like IOTI have added Orinduik to the itinerary, which is further and apparently has nice waterfalls as well.
The price is amazing. I looked at other tours from Guyana with other local providers. They ranged from 3000 - 4000 $ US. So for IOTI to do it for $ 1750 and provide even extra service, thats amazing.
Guide went out of his way to make sure everything went smoothly.

What would you improve about this program?
It was great. No real improvements needed. I felt sorry for the driver because he had to drive a long way. 4 in one vehicle is ok but ideally 3 would be better. I understand that they now using 2 or 3 vehicles to spread the load and only have 3 in a vehicle.
Would you recommend this program?
Yes, I would
