How to Plan a Day Trip to Kaieteur Falls: A Step-by-Step Guide

How to Plan a Day Trip to Kaieteur Falls: A Step-by-Step Guide

Surrounded by complete wilderness, visiting Kaieteur Falls is a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

Here is everything you need to know to plan a trip to kaieteur falls in guyana..

As the plane flew over Kaieteur Falls, I felt a sense of wonder that was difficult to put into words. The beauty of the falls came into view, and I was entranced by one of the most untouched natural wonders I had ever seen. The breathtaking sight of millions of litres of water plunging 250 meters into the jungle below left me in complete awe of the power of nature. This was my introduction to Kaieteur Falls, the highest single-drop waterfall in the world.

I visited Kaieteur Falls on a day trip from Georgetown, Guyana, and in this guide, I want to tell you everything about it, so you can plan it too.

View of the falls from my seat

Organizing your day trip to Kaieteur Falls:

Before packing your bags for Kaieteur, decide if you want to travel using a tour operator . Researching prices and options is key to finding the best option for your budget and interests. While planning a day trip independently can save you some costs, you will require more time planning and scheduling the correct route.

Tours can be also scheduled directly with the airlines and Trans Guyana Airways is the leading airline, charging 240 EUR per person and working with tour operator Evergreen Adventures . Air Services Limited (the one that collaborated with my tour operator) is another option, setting the same price but with departures only on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays, and Sundays, with a minimum number of passengers required. Roraima Airways is the least known of all three offerings, with the same package for approximately 210 EUR , but without the option of online booking.

Here are the contact details for all three airlines and some information about booking with them:

Trans Guyana Airways:

  • www.transguyana.net
  • Phone: +592 222 2525
  • Trans Guyana will redirect you to Evergreen Adventures, where you can book your tour through their agency.

Air Services Limited:

Roraima Airways:

  • www.roraimaairways.com
  • [email protected]
  • Phone: +592 225-9648
  • Tours can’t be booked online, and you may have to drop by their office in Georgetown’s Ogle Airport and schedule your trip from there.

Safety checks at Georgetown's Ogle Airport

With all airline tours, you will get the same package:

  • Water (some tours will include a packed lunch, so ask in advance)
  • Kaieteur National Park Registration fee

Additionally, all-day tours have only two hours to stay at Kaieteur Falls. This is enough time to explore the waterfalls independently and take enough photos, but it will still feel like you are rushing from spot to spot.

INSIDE TIP: If you are only three or four passengers on the flight (depending on the tour operator), you can always ask the pilot to do a lower (or a second) flyover of the falls from a different angle. Also, take a front seat on the left side when travelling from Georgetown to Kaieteur and the right side when travelling from Kaieteur. You will get the best view of the falls from the air.

If you want to use a tour operator, expect to get basically the same tour and pay a higher price. The advantage of using a tour operator is the opportunity to have last-minute changes, have a company pick you up from the hotel, and be informed of any change in your tour itinerary. Tour companies are also ideal if you want to visit multiple destinations in Guyana and need someone to handle the logistics.

These are some of the most reputable tour operators in Guyana:

  • www.wilderness-explorers.com
  • [email protected]
  • Phone: +592 219 0570

This is the most-known company in Guyana. They organized the National Geographic expeditions in this country and the trips from journalists and photographers that collaborate with the tourism authority.

Remember that prices may vary depending on the type of tour and group size. Contacting the tour operator directly for the most accurate and up-to-date information is always a good idea.

What to expect on tour?

Once you arrive at Kaieteur Falls National Park, a ranger will greet you and give you more or less 10 minutes you get ready for the short hike and take a look at their tourism office.

At this office, you can find more information about the falls and the local Amerindian communities and browse through a small souvenir shop with items made by members of the nearby village of Karamang.

NOTE: Beside the basic hiking outfit, it is recommended that you bring mosquito repellent and sunscreen.

Amount of monthly visitors in Kaieteur Falls

Once your group is ready to go, you will take a 15-20 minute hike from the airstrip to the falls, during which you will learn about the region’s flora and fauna, as well as the local communities who still inhabit the area. There are three viewpoints in Kaieteur, each offering a unique photo opportunity. Since most tours are small, you will have plenty of space and time to explore independently and enjoy the natural wonder before you.

You might have seen photos of travellers from several spots closer to the falls on the internet. Unfortunately, they are no longer accessible due to safety concerns.

INSIDER TIP: Want to spend the night at Kaieteur Falls? There is a guesthouse near the falls that offers basic accommodation. However, be aware that the facilities are rudimentary and you will need to arrange your own transportation to and from the falls. In addition, you will need to bring your own food and supplies. Tour operators may be able to assist you in arranging an overnight stay, but I do not have any information on this.

Can you fly a drone in Kaieteur Falls?

It is not possible to fly drones in Kaieteur Falls National Park without prior authorization from the relevant authorities (the drone won’t even take off). However, after seeing some videos of travellers doing it, I wanted to find out how complicated it is to get this permit. Since Kaieteur Falls is a national park, I was required to apply for special authorization from the government . This can be done through the Guyana Tourism Authority (or they will explain to you in detail how to do it).

Unfortunately, here comes the tricky part. Once in Kaieteur Falls, you must provide a code on the DJI app to start your drone. I didn’t think about this issue, and since I had no phone signal in Kaieteur, I could not get the code or fly my drone.

In case you apply for a drone permit and receive it, remember to activate the code for Kaieteur Falls National Park on your DJI app before arriving in this area.

Planning to visit Kaieteur Falls overland?

Yes! It is possible to get to Kaieteur Falls via land, but it will take five days . First, you’ll need to take a public bus to the town of Mahdia , and from there, plan a three-day hike to the base of Kaieteur Falls. This trip may be challenging to organize, but if you’re interested in a unique adventure that not many travellers have experienced, this could be a great option.

Some tour operators offer overland hike packages with prices starting at 800 – 900 EUR, including a return flight to Georgetown. Search for “Kaieteur Overland Hike” to learn more.

Kaieteur Falls Tours: Explore the Amazon in Guyana

A visit to Guyana is not complete without taking advantage of one of the many Kaieteur Falls tours. I’m always amazed when I’m introduced to a new and exciting piece of information about the Caribbean. I remember growing up and hearing about these falls and seeing them in countless books about Guyana and the Caribbean. But what I just learnt is that they are four times higher than Niagara Falls. In fact, the Kaieteur Falls has the distinction of being the highest single drop waterfall in the world.

The Kaieteur Falls, which is only one of over 300 waterfalls in Guyana, stands at seven hundred and forty-one (741) feet and flows into the Potaro River. This land of many waterways is an eco-lover’s dream and is easily one of the Caribbean’s nature sanctuaries. The country is located in South America and is home to a portion of the famed Amazon jungle . In fact, the Kaieteur Falls is one of the highlights of the jungle.

Because these falls are so iconic, they have become a world recognised tourist attraction. Kaiteur Falls tours are very popular and include tours by air and tours by foot. Here are some of the best Kaieteur Falls Tours.

But tourism in Guyana is still in the entry stage, so a bit of organising or know-how is required to visit Kaieteur Falls.

Here is some practical information on how to get there.

Table of Contents

How to visit Kaieteur Falls – 2 Options

You have two options to reach the incredible Kaieteur Falls. By plane as part of a day trip from Georgetown or an overland journey that takes about five days.

How to visit Kaieteur Falls Guyana #visiteverycountry

1. Visit Kaieteur Falls as part of a day trip (by plane)

Currently, three airlines fly to Kaieteur Falls as part of a day. All have offices at the domestic Ogle airport, and if you are flying in here, we recommend asking around as soon as you land.

Please note most international flights arrive at a different airport – Cheddi Jagan International Airport GEO, but Liat flies into Ogle Airport from Barbados or Trinidad. Book the cheapest flights on Skyscanner.

Airlines flying to Kaieteur Falls

Trans Guyana Airways

Contact: +592 222 2525, [email protected]

With a nice office and professional staff, this seems to be the leading airline to do day trips. You can inquire directly at the office at Ogle Airport. The cost of the day trip is USD 190 per person.

They work with Evergreen Adventures, which is one of the main tour operators in Guyana if you are looking for a bigger package rather than just to visit Kaieteur Falls, they can assist you.

The day trip picks up passengers at 11.30 downtown for 1 pm departure. Lunch and water are usually included.

Air Services Limited

+592 222-1234, [email protected]

This is the company we used for our trip. There is an office at Ogle airport and their website has a schedule. Flights are due to depart every Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday. But please note a minimum number is required so when we enquired at the office we were told there are no departures until Sunday. We then ended up flying on Saturday as the flight was charted through a tour company.

The cost is USD 190 per person, although you will see an advertisement for $150. We believe these are simple old adverts from a few years ago.

Roraima Airways

+592 225-9648, [email protected]

We have visited the office at the airport, but these guys seem to be the least organized. They had a flight on Sunday, and it might just be an airline that tour companies use to chart their flight for groups.

As the packages are pretty much the same and if your time in Guyana is limited, we would still take it as the falls are worth it.

The cost is the same at $190.

Example of Kaieteur Falls itinerary

When you arrive at Kaieteur National Park, a local guide will escort you for the next 2 hours. He will provide more information on the waterfalls, the park and the wildlife. There are 3 different viewpoints, each about a 10-15 minute walk.

The main office has a small souvenir shop and bathrooms, and you can purchase drinks if you need them.

Tour Operators in Guyana that can book a trip to Kaieteur Falls

You can also book your trip to visit Kaieteur Falls with an operator, but please note all flights are still subject to change as if they don’t have enough clients, they won’t fly, and you can get bumped to the next day.

Of course, if you are booking as part of a group, this should solve the issue of minimum numbers.

The prices are usually much higher, around USD 210 or 220 per person, but you can also pay with a card. See below for all details and their website, which lists their current packages in Guyana.

2. Visit Kaieteur Falls overland from Georgetown

If you are seeking a real adventure, then this is it. The overland journey involves a boat ride upstream, a few days of hiking and overnight in the jungle. The journey starts with a 9-hour bus ride to the town of Mahdia.

On the second day you will take a boat upstream, and from then on, it’s a few days of hiking to reach the National Park and to visit Kaieteur Falls.

The return to Georgetown would most likely be by plane. Enquire with tour operators for more details, and please note that an overland trip to visit Kaieteur Falls is really only suitable for experienced adventurers and hikers.

Tip:  Be prepared to spend a few days in Georgetown as flights might get pushed due to minimum numbers or weather. But trust me, it will be worth it. See some good accommodation options below.

Try to sit on the plane’s right side as you will see the waterfalls when approaching and leaving. You get the last glimpse, and the afternoon sun might help to capture it better.

Where to Stay in Georgetown

It’s hard to find much information on affordable accommodation options in Georgetown; however, we stayed at Rima Guesthouse and had a great stay.

Room rates start from USD 30 p/night with shared bathroom facilities. The guesthouse is in a great location and has some cheap places to eat nearby. The guesthouse is sparkling clean and offers a great daily lunch menu.

UPDATE December 2023: We’ve been advised by travellers who recently visited Rima Guesthouse that the rate is now 150 Euro per night! Now, if this is true all year round – we’d advise to check the other suggested hotels we’ve listed below.

A few mid-range hotel options with fantastic reviews, locations and amenities are El Dorado Inn  and King’s Hotel & Residences .

Mount Roraima Trekking Tour

flying-over-kaieteur-falls-guyana

This tour combines a Kaieteur Falls trek with a hike to Mount Roraima.

We start with a three day trek through pristine rainforest and abundant wildlife of undiscovered Guyana.

Next, we spend six more days hiking the savannah-like plateaus of Mount Roraima, along its incredible Tepuy table top mountains.

Kaiteur Falls is tallest single drop waterfall in the world, and situated in the heart of Guyana.

It supports a unique micro environment with large Tank bromeliads, in which the tiny Golden frog spends its entire life and the rarely seen bright orange Cock- of-the-rock nesting close by.

More on Mount Roraima and Kaieteur Falls tour

Next, to Venezuela. The Sabana is a grassy savannah-like plateau, replete with natural wonders such as waterfalls, rapids and tropical rainforest; the plentiful wildlife makes this a naturalist and birdwatcher’s paradise.

Above the Sabana loom the Tepuys, or “Table Mountains”. Mount Roraima is the most famous. The tepuys’ lunar-like surface is home to many plants and animals found nowhere else on earth.

Mount Roraima is one of the most acclaimed sights in South America.

For hundreds of years the mile high flat-topped mountain inspired travellers – tales abounded concerning the mysterious, inacessible summit above the clouds.

Trip Highlights

Hike through pristine rainforest to the Kaieteur Falls.

Trek the savannahs of Roraima and visit the famous table top Tepuy mountains.

Visit contrasting eco-systems in remote parts of the world.

See unique animals and vegetation of Mount Roraima.

After the excitement of seeing a giant anteater with baby, I thought the trip couldn't get any better until we saw a jaguar close up on the riverbank!

Full Itinerary

Day 1: arrive in guyana, transfer into georgetown, cara lodge.

Arrive in Guyana and transfer to Georgetown.

Overnight at Cara Lodge, a 150-year-old heritage building which has been converted into a beautiful small hotel.

Day 2: City tour, Cara Lodge (B)

Georgetown the chief port, capital and largest city of Guyana is situated on the right Bank of the Demerara River Estuary.

It was chosen as a site for a fort to guard the early Dutch settlements of the Demerara River. The city of Georgetown was designed largely by the Dutch and is laid out in a rectangular pattern with wide tree lined avenues and irrigation canals that criss cross the city.

Most of the buildings in the city are wooden with unique architecture dating back to the 18th and 19th centuries.

During your visit to Georgetown there are a number of interesting sights that should not be missed: the most famous being St. George’s Cathedral. The Cathedral is one of the world’s tallest free standing wooden buildings and was consecrated on 1892. The foundation stone was laid on November 23, 1890 and the building was designed by Sir Arthur Bloomfield. The story of the cathedral is told on the interior on tablets and memorials of a historical and sentimental nature: it is the tale of the history of Guyana in general and of the Diocese in particular.

At the beginning of the Avenue of the Republic stands the Public Library housed in the Carnegie Building. Other historic buildings along this promenade are the Town Hall, a splendid example of Gothic architecture, and further along are the Victoria Law Courts and St. Andrews Kirk. St. Andrew’s is the oldest surviving structure of any church in Guyana.

The famous Stabroek Market, once described as a “bizarre bazaar”, contains every conceivable item from house hold goods and gold jewellery to fresh meat and vegetables brought to town on the river daily. The clock tower can be seen for miles around and is a famous landmark.

No trip to Georgetown would be complete without a visit to the Botanical Gardens and zoo. The Botanical Gardens houses one of the most extensive collections of tropical flora in the Caribbean and are laid out with ponds, canals, kissing bridges and bandstand. Over 100 species of Guyanese wildlife can be observed at the Zoo including a wide variety of tropical fishes and birds.

The National Museum which contains a broad selection of our animal life and heritage should not be missed, nor the Walter Roth Museum of Anthropology, which explains Amerindian history and life style.

Day 3: 4x4 and canoe to Amatuk Falls, camp (B,L,D)

We depart Georgetown at 07.00 and make our way to town of Linden.

From Linden it is a 5-hour dusty trip on the Mabura hill road, where you will enter the Konawaruk Mountains. Sightings of Cursow, deer and jaguars are frequent on this road.

We reach Mahdia, where you change vehicle to an open back 4×4 for a one hour trail drive to Pamela landing on the Potaro River.

The real adventure begins with a 2-hour boat trip and walking up the Potaro River to the Amatuk Falls where water rushes over rocks creating natural Jacuzzis.

Overnight at Camp Amatuk.

Day 4: Boat to Waratuk Falls, camp (B,L,D)

Today you leave by boat and continue upstream from the fall. The river now enters the Kaieteur Gorge and steep mountains rise up on either side to heights of 610m/2,000ft – many of their bare rock faces look like ancient temples. We finally reach our next campsite at the Waratuk Fall where we camp for the night.

Arrive in Guyana and transfer to Georgetown. Overnight at Cara Lodge, a 150-year-old heritage building which has been converted into a beautiful small hotel.

Day 5: Hike to Tukiet, camp (B,L,D)

After an early breakfast, we begin the last leg of the journey.

An 8-hour hike through beautiful rainforest will take you from the Waratuk Fall to Tukiet, at the bottom of the impressive Kaieteur Falls, where we overnight. At this is fabulous campsite you can cool of in the Potaro River and at the same time take in the spectacular view of the gorge.

Day 6: Kaieteur Falls, guest house (B,L,D)

From Tukeit you ascend the mountain to the top of Kaieteur fall – a 4 hour hike. The ascent winds it way up the mountain through changing vegetation as the altitude rises. You will pass cool mountain streams where it is impossible to continue without a dip.

The final stage of the climb is known as ‘OH MY GOD’ because of its steep trail. But on reaching the top all is forgotten as you catch your glimpse of the mighty Kaieteur. At dusk thousand of swifts gather the sky like dark clouds then plunge into the water of the fall to their nesting site on the rock face behind the fall.

Tonight we sleep at Kaieteur Guest House.

Day 7: Fly to Georgetown, transfer to Cara Lodge (B,L)

The early morning mist of Kaieteur gives way to a fantastic view of the falls from Johnson View. The golden frog can easily be seen in the giant Bromeliads in this area. On the plane to Georgetown you get a final, spectacular aerial view of Kaieteur Falls, the gorge and the awe-inspiring expanse of rainforest and rivers below you.

Transfer from airport to Georgetown and overnight at Cara Lodge.

Day 8: Fly to Lethem, cross through Brazil to Venezuela, lodge (B,D)

We fly from Georgetown to Lethem and then cross border to Bon Fim in Brazil to catch the bus to Boa Vista.

At the Brazilian border town La Linea your tour leader is waiting for you and accompanies you on the way to the gold mining town of Santa Elena de Uairen (Venezuelan border town with Brazil). It’s an approximately 20 minute ride from the Brazilian border.

Overnight at Camp Yakoo.

Day 9: Drive to Canaima National Park, trek to camp (B,L,D)

We drive to Canaima National Park, which is inhabited by indigenous people of the Pemon tribe. The Canaima National Park is with 30,000 sq. km. the seventh largest National Park in the world. Visit the Jasper waterfalls, where you will be able to appreciate the different tones of colour of this semi-precious rock.

We continue to Paritepuy de Roraima, a small indigenous community of the Pemon Indians, where we will meet our camp porters for the trek. We begin our trek across rolling grassland of the savannah.

After crossing several streams, such as the Tek River and the Kukunan River, we reach the Kukunan campsite and can enjoy a fantastic view of the stark face of Roraima ahead and Kukunana Tepuy to its left. The Kukunan Falls, second tallest in the world (640m/2,100ft), should be clearly visible, too, and we can see the pinnacle of rock next to Roraima.

Overnight at Kukunan Campsite.

Day 10: Trek to Roraima base, camp (B,L,D)

On this 5-hour trek we cross rising savannah to the base of the mountain to camp in a meadow alive with multi-coloured birds and fireflies at night.

The Roraima wall is extremely impressive here as it rises 914m/3,000ft directly in front of the campsite, with the quartz in the rock glittering in the late afternoon sun.

This fascinating campsite is considered as being one of the best campsites in the world.

Day 11: Climb to top of Roraima, camp (B,L,D)

In the morning we set off along the route that leads diagonally across the face of the Roraima wall (5 hrs, 3km). The narrow trail winds through montane rainforests and crosses small streams where hummingbirds, orchids and brightly coloured flowers are abundant.

Higher up, the vegetation changes to pre-historic tree ferns and the trail leads under a waterfall descending from the cliff edge hundreds of feet above. After 4 -5 hours we arrive at the entrance to the summit, guarded by massive grey rocks.

Here we can look back for an incredible view. We visit the Valley of Crystals, the river-valley of the Arobopo River shaped like an amphitheatre around which are grouped large dark rounded stone columns. The river itself runs over a bed of crystals and crystal fragments. The northern point of Mount Roraima offers us stunning views from various points on the edge.

Overnight on Roraima.

Day 12: Explore summit, camp (B,L,D)

We explore Roraima’s summit trekking a long circular route to the triple border point, where Venezuela, Guyana and Brazil meet (9 hours).

We walk through strange rock formations, surprisingly lush valleys and places where the ground is covered with sparkling quartz crystals. There are rock pools everywhere and you may be lucky enough to see the strange black toads, unique to Mount Roraima.

The plant life is bizarre, as over half the species are unique to Tepuys or to Roraima alone, including several species of orchids and carnivorous plants. We also visit the Oil Bird cave (Guacharo bird).

Day 13: Return to camp (B,L,D)

In the morning there is still time to explore some more before we descend to the base and continue to the campsite at Tek River, where we overnight (8 hours).

Day 14: Return to Paratepuy, lodge (B,L,D)

We complete the 4-hour return to Paratepuy and our driver with welcomed fresh supplies of beer, soft drinks and a large lunch.

We say goodbye to our camp porters and set off to Santa Elena de Uairen where we return Camp Yakoo.

Day 15: Transfer to Lethem, hotel (B,D)

Transfer to the Brazilian border town La Linea and from there we continue to Lethem, Guyana. Overnight at Savannah Inn.

Day 16: Fly Georgetown, transfer to international airport for flight out, tour ends (B)

Fly from Lethem to Georgetown. Transfer to airport for departing international flight.

Prices From $5,000 / £4,065 per person

Accommodation

Sleeping within the rainforest and savannah is a fantastic experience, and comes as second nature after a day or two.

While no one comes to Guyana looking for a luxury travel experience, welcome creature comforts are on offer at the charming colonial boutique Cara Lodge in Georgetown as well as the storied Pegasus on the city’s northwest corner.

A variety of expert guides may accompany on this tour, all of whom have many years’ experience and plenty of enthusiasm to make sure your trip is a great one.

Below are a few of the guides.

Wally Prince:  Unrivalled expertise and experience leading tours and teams in Guyana.

Wally is one of the most sought-after guides for professional birders, documentary teams, and scientific expeditions visiting Guyana. He served for seven years as the guide coordinator, resident wildlife biologist, chief trainer, and operations manager at Iwokrama International Centre for Rainforest Conservation and Development. He has identified more than 700 of the 800+ bird species recorded in Guyana and is intimately familiar with their habitats, behaviours, vocalisations, and mating rituals. He grew up wandering through Guyana’s lush and biodiverse interior.

Gary Sway:  Amerindian, Expert Naturalist

Gary Sway is a Macushi Amerindian from the village of Surama. Having grown up in the rainforest he has a great understanding and affinity for his natural surroundings and the wildlife. He has been a guide at Surama Eco-lodge for nearly 15 years and is well loved by those who have explored and seen the rainforest through his eyes. Gary is also an experienced birding guide and has represented Guyana at the Bird Expo in Columbus Ohio, USA. His patience and keen eye means great rewards for those birding with him. In his spare time Gary is a leading player in the Surama Makushi culture group.

Nadir (Carlos) Allie:   Guide, Bird Expert

Nadir (Carlos) Allie was originally from the west coast of the ancient county of Berbice. His family were rice farmers, but Carlos did not want to follow this path, and moved to Georgetown to learn his father’s profession and became a tailor. From an early age Carlos always had a love and passion for birds. He never joined the other boys in trying to shoot them with a slingshot, preferring to rescue and care for the injured ones.

In Georgetown, through his love of birds he became friends with Andy Narine and together they formed the Guyana Amazon Tropical Birds Society (GATBS). Through GATBS, Carlos was able to get involved in many different projects including bird counts for some of the interior lodges, and also collecting information on the avifauna of Guyana for a new Guyana bird list. Over the years Carlos has become an experienced bird guide, leading tours to Guyana’s top birding locations especially along the coastlands where he was born and continues to live. Carlos loves to share his passion and love of birds with visitors and locals whenever he gets the opportunity. He is especially fond of leading tours of the Botanical Gardens in Georgetown.

Almost all dietary requirements can be catered for – please enquire in advance as we have to organise supplied.

Whilst on tour the food is of a very good standard with fresh beef, chicken and fish and plenty of vegetables and fruit.

On camping trips/in remote areas, use is made of dried and salted produce, supplemented by fishing.

The blend of different ethnic influences – Indian, African, Chinese, Creole, English, Portuguese, Amerindian, North American – gives a distinctive flavour to Guyanese cuisine.

Try dishes such as Pepper Pot, meat cooked in casareep (bitter casava) juice with peppers and herbs. Garlic pork, a specialty at Christmas.  Curry and Roti is popular everywhere. Seafood is plentiful and varied, as is the wide variety of tropical fruit and vegetables. Try casava and yams.

Rum is the most popular drink and Guyana blends some of the worlds best. There are many inexpensive rums that are an excellent rum with mixers. The better rums such as Banks Extra, Banks XM 10 Year and DDL’s 12 year old King of Diamonds are smooth rums and great straight or on the rocks. DDL’s 15 year old El Dorado was voted the best rum in the world in 1999, 2000 and 2001, and is as smooth as a good brandy. The local Banks Beer is a good beer.

The water from the tap is brownish in colour, which is from the tannin in the water, and not polluted. However, it is recommended that bottled water, which is readily available, is used for drinking. Remember to drink plenty of it to prevent dehydration as it does get humid in Guyana.

Activity Level

This has been classified a moderate trek.

You need to be have a reasonable level of walking fitness to hike to Kaieteur Falls. The climb up from the Gorge to the top of the Falls is a hot and hard one which will take 4-6 hours, depending on the weather and your fitness levels. Most days you will walk for a few hours, bird spotting and searching for wildlife.

The humidity can make a short walk feel a lot harder than it is, and take on board lots of water.

The trip is open to anyone who wants to experience the rainforest, but particularly for those with an interest in hiking and wildlife.

Practical Information

Introduction to guyana.

Guyana is the only English-speaking country on the South American continent and has a Caribbean feel.  

It is a destination for the nature lover looking for an off-the-beaten-path destination with many attractions. Guyana offers pristine rainforest, abundant wildlife, jaguars and the mighty Kaieteur Falls.

Start your adventure in the melting pot that is the country’s capital – Georgetown. Here Hindu, Muslim and Christian cultures blend in harmony.

Head off to visit the breathtaking Kaieteur Falls – the  world’s highest single-drop waterfall.

Then the interior beckons. Jungle and Savannah await. With luck you might spot the Cock o’ the rock or a harpy eagle.

Bigger mammals such as the ant eater might surprise you or if incredibly lucky the mighty jaguar. Travel by road or river and stay in rustic but comfortable lodges – all with an authentic Guyanese welcome.

Guyana will be an unforgettable adventure.  

Geography of Guyana

Guyana has five natural habitats to discover, the most famous of which is is its dense rain forest.

This ‘jungle’ is also known as the  Forested Highland Region and is in the south of the country, and is very sparsely populated.

The majority (around 90%) of Guyana’s population lives in a marshy plain on the Atlantic coast, known as the low coastal plain .

Most of the country’s mineral deposits (bauxite, gold, diamonds) are found a little further inshore in that is called the  white sand belt .

The south west of the country gives way to a desert savannah which then becomes an interior savannah .

From here, the grasslands and mountains of the interior highlands  start to rise towards the borders with Brazil and Venezuela.

This is the largest of Guyana’s geographical areas and consists a series of plateaus, flat-topped mountains, and savannahs.

The Pakaraima Mountains dominate the western part of the interior highlands and include Mount Roraima, Guyana’s highest peak at 2,772m (9,094 ft) on the Venezuelan border.

The largest expanse of grassland, the Rupununi Savannah, covers about 15,000 square kilometres in southern Guyana.

Guyana has three large rivers, the Essequibo at 1,010km(628 miles), the Courantyne River (which forms a natural border with Suriname) at 724kms (450 miles), and the Berbice – 595kms (370 miles).

Weather in Guyana

Guyana is a hot and humid country. February and March are prime times to visit, along with Aug-Jan. Read our guide to Guyana’s weather for more.

The mean shade temperature is 27°C, while maximum is 31°C and the minimum is 24°C. The heat is greatly tempered by cooling breezes from the sea.

There are two wet seasons in the north of the country, from May to June, and from December to January.

The south and the Rupununi region receive one wet season from May to July.

All wet seasons may extend into months either side.

Rainfall averages 2,300 mm a year in Georgetown.

Good kit is vital for every trip.

Guyana is a hot and humid country.

Take sunscreen, sun glasses and a hat to Guyana.

It can rain at any time, so always have a poncho/waterproof jacket handy.

Give plenty of thought to kit selection, and try to keep weight down.

Passenger/s traveling on internal flights in Guyana are allowed a free baggage allowance of 20lbs/9.1KG exceeding this weight passenger/s will incur a cost of GY$150.00 (price subject to change) equivalent to US$ 0.77cents per pound. Please note that additional baggage allowance is subject to availability and cannot be confirmed until day/time of check-in by the airline.  We can book excess weight on your behalf but it is subject to being within the payload of the aircraft and at the discretion of the airline. We understand you may want more than 20lbs/9.1KG of baggage and wish to have guaranteed excess baggage/weight and so an alternative is to pre-book an extra seat on the flight which will afford you 175lbs/79.4KG for you to use individually or for your group.

More on Gran Sabana and Mount Roraima

The Gran Sabana

The Gran Sabana is a grassy savannah-like plateau with an elevation of 900-1,200m. Millions of years of erosion have made this location one of the world’s richest areas for gold and diamond mining. Abounding in natural wonders such as waterfalls, rapids and tropical rainforest, the plentiful wildlife makes the Sabana a naturalist and birdwatcher’s paradise.

Recently tourism, and especially eco-tourism, has made La Gran Sabana the first choice for travellers seeking adventure in the remote areas of its unique geography.

Above the Sabana loom the tepuys, or “Table Mountains” of which Mount Roraima is the most famous. The tepuys are estimated to be over 1,700 million years old. On the tepuys’ lunar-like surface are many plants and animals found no where else on earth. The Auyantepuy, located in Canaima National Park, features the Angel Falls, the world’s tallest waterfall.

Mount Roraima

Mount Roraima is one of the most acclaimed sights in South America. For hundreds of years the mile high flat topped mountain has been inspiring the tales and rumours concerning what actually exists on its summit above the clouds.

In the late sixteenth century, Sir Walter Raleigh first visited the area around Roraima, searching for a civilisation that would make England as rich as the Aztecs had made Spain. He never found one, but he did return home with what were deemed by his peers as wild and outlandish stories about a Crystal Mountain. In his treaties “The Discoveries of the large Rich and Beautiful Empire of Guiana”, Raleigh likened the mountains to “a high church tower. “A large river leaps down from above without touching the mountain’s wall in its descent, as it goes out toward the air and reaches the bottom with a roar and clamour that would be produced by one thousand giant bells striking one another. I believe there does not exist a bigger and more marvelous waterfall in the world,” he said.

Roraima has also made an impression on western literature and thought, influencing such men as Charles Darwin and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. After the publication of Darwin’s “Origin of Species” there was great public interest in “missing links” and “relic species” preserved by isolation. Roraima’s mysterious summit was an excellent possibility for an area at evolutionary standstill and the last place on earth where dinosaurs could exist. Conan Doyle, fascinated by the descriptions of explorers such as Im Thurm, wrote in 1912 what is considered to be one of the best science fiction novels ever written “The Lost World.”

ATOL holiday protection

Atta rainforest lodge, Guyana

Get up into the trees like monkeys at Atta Lodge, for some up close and personal wildlife viewing.

The major attraction here is a 154m/505ft long canopy walkway, with four platforms some up to 30m into the canopy.

An array of birds and animals you struggle to see from the forest floor soon zoom into view.

Among these are endangered and protected species such as the jaguar, the bullet wood tree, greenheart and the waramadan (endemic in Guyana only to the Iwokrama Forest).

The lodge provides comfortable accommodation with 8 private rooms, three home-cooked meals per day, and ample opportunities to explore the surrounding rainforest by foot, canoe, or 4X4.

Caiman House, Guyana

You’ll need to keep quiet in your kayak as you help researchers from Caiman House search and tag black caiman at night time.

By staying here, you’ll get an inside look at the work of those trying to protect this endangered species.

You can help to collect the data of any captured caiman – some reaching up to 12 feet in length! – before they are released back into the wild.

Caiman House is once-in-a-lifetime and thrilling part to any tour of Guyana, especially for wildlife enthusiasts who can also look out for snakes, frogs, bird spiders and more

Georgetown, Guyana

The Atlantic gateway to Guyana, Georgetown is a fascinating mix of people, history fusions.

The ex-British colony contains influences from Amerindians, Asia, Brazil and more, making it a lively and welcoming destination.

The Natural History Museum is well worth a visit, as well as the world’s largest wooden cathedral and the thrumming market.

English is widely spoken and friendly local people are normally up for a chat about the unique atmosphere of Georgetown.

Iwokrama Field Station , Guyana

Deep into Guyana’s enormous rainforest lies Iwokrama, a one million acre wilderness full of wildlife.

Birds, trees frogs and the elusive puma live in the forests, whose verdant canopy you can enjoy from the Turtle Mountain vantage point.

The area is protected and known as Iwokrama International Centre for Rainforest Conservation, with the full involvement of the local people.

You can see their history in the Amerindian petroglyphs close to some rivers, a fascinating insight into how animals and humans have coexisted for centuries in this pristine rainforest.

Kaieteur Falls, Guyana

Flying over the jungle canopy, the views confirm that there are no other falls in the world with the magnitude of the sheer drop existing at Kaieteur.

Being so remote, you can walk right up to the flowing water, which gushes 822 feet into a deep and forested gorge.

Look for Golden frogs, unique to a tiny area, living in bromeliads growing in the warm, humid air.

Most likely your group will be the only souls in this remote location, adding to its incredible appeal.

Karanambu Ranch, Guyana

Famous for rescuing orphaned giant river otters, Karanambu also represents the spirit of travel of old.

An outpost, miles from civilisation, there’s a warm welcome and great wildlife.

See the giant Victoria Regis water lily bloom at dusk, or cruise the river looking for giant otters and caiman.

If you wake early enough, you may be able to find a giant anteater snaffling around for a treat.

Sadly, Diane McTurk is no longer with us, but the ranch continues to write its own chapters in the history of conservation.

Roraima Mountains, Guyana

Rumoured to have inspired parts of Conan Doyle’s Lost World book, ‘Tepuys’, or table top mountains, after visiting, it’s easy to see why.

From the sabanna that links Guyana’s western front with Venuzuela, the Tepuys rise dramatically.

They provide unique eco-zones for many species and the lunar-like surface is home to species found nowhere else on earth.

Waterfalls, rapids and rainforest criss-cross the various faces and sections of the Tepuys, making Mount Roraima one of the most acclaimed sights in South America.

Kaieteur Falls

Kaieteur Falls is the world's largest single drop waterfall by the volume of water flowing over it. Located on the Potaro River in the Kaieteur National Park, it sits in a section of the Amazon rainforest included in the Potaro-Siparuni region of Guyana. It is 226 metres (741 ft) high when measured from its plunge over a sandstone and conglomerate cliff to the first break.

Lethem Rodeo

The origins of Rodeo dates back to the 1960s at Pirara during the dry season when all ranchers got together to round up their cattle. Rounding up is the process whereby all cattle are brought to the corral for headcount, branding and general inspection. The small competition among ranchers grew over time to become the biggest attraction in the region. It is now held at its permanent home, the RRR ground.

How Much Does It Cost To Go To Kaieteur Falls?

guyana kaieteur falls tours price

But then comes the logical question, “how much does it cost to go to Kaieteur Falls?”. Don’t worry, on this page, I will go over the different options you have to visit the falls, and how much they cost. I have also included a detailed cost summary for in case you would like to follow the DIY overland itinerary to Kaieteur Falls I have followed.

3+1 Ways To Get To Kaieteur Falls

The day tours.

If you do a quick search about how to get to visit Kaieteur Falls, you will quickly see that you basically have two options: a day trip by plane, or a 5-day overland trek.

The plane tour is a quick and easy way. For around 200 USD, they fly you to the falls; take you from viewpoint to viewpoint, and then you fly back.

It’s great if you don’t have much time and if you are not much of a hiker, but it can be a little frustrating. If the weather was bad, too bad for you. Also know that if you opt for this tour, you will not be allowed to go anywhere close to the falls. After a girl committed suicide there a few years ago, it became a restricted area for all visitors on plane tours.

The 5-Day Overland Trek

The second option is to go with a local tour operator for a 5-day Overland Trek to Kaieteur, with a return to Georgetown by plane. I would have gladly done that, but I didn’t have the budget. They ask between 650 to 900 USD per person for this tour (depending on the tour operator), with a minimum of 3 persons.

The DIY Overland Trek

This is the option I have chosen for my own trip to Kaieteur Falls, and it was a beautiful adventure! If you don’t mind some preparation work, a bit of negotiation with boatmen, and challenging jungle hiking, it is the option I recommend. It involves taking a minibus to the town of Mahdia, then taking a boat on the Potaro River to a place called Tukeit, and finally hiking up a hill in the jungle to reach Kaieteur Falls. I have written a complete guide and a very detailed itinerary for this route. The boat ride is by far the most expensive you can expect it to cost between 400 and 450 USD per person, for 2 persons (check the cost breakdown below for more details!).

How much does it cost to go to Kaieteur Falls

Something To Try: DIY Plane Tour

There might be the 4th option of buying two plane tickets – Georgetown/Kaieteur Falls and Kaieteur Falls/Georgetown – on different dates and enjoying several days at the falls. This is something I might do for a second visit to Kaieteur, having already experienced the overland journey.

The drawback of this option is that if you use tourist flights, the company will most likely charge you for two return flights (40 000 GYD each), making you pay for your empty seat after they leave you at the falls and when they come back to pick you up.

If you have the budget, it is something you can consider, if not you can try calling airlines or directly take face to face with them at Ogle Airport to see if they have any cargo or shuttle flights scheduled around your dates, which should be cheaper – but of course, they won’t let you know so easily, they will want to sell you the tourist flights.

How Much Does it Cost to Go to Kaieteur Falls – In Details

Kaieteur falls tours with an agency/airline – cost summary.

Here is a summary of the costs for the various options you have in order to visit Kaieteur Falls with a local travel agency or airline.

The price varies from one tour operator to another. The table below aims to give you an overview of what’s available, but I suggest taking a look at the tour operators’ websites directly to see what they offer. You can find a list of tour operators in Guyana here .

Kaieteur Falls

DIY Overland Trip from Georgetown – Cost Breakdown Summary For 2 People

Here is a simple table listing all the costs associated with a DIY overland return trip to Kaieteur Falls from Georgetown. Some prices were slightly rounded to make things easier, exchange rates always vary a little anyway! This table follows my own experience: based on 2 persons traveling, spending 1 night in Tukeit, and 2 nights at Kaieteur Falls. Adjust it to your own situation.

I suppose you can round it up to $450 per person if you include some groceries you need to pack with you for your meals at the Kaieteur Guesthouse. So basically, the independent overland trip costs double the quick plane trip, but half of the official Overland Trek with a travel agency.

If you are traveling alone, it may not be financially very interesting to do this trip on your own, it will just be as expensive as doing it with an agency. From two people traveling it becomes interesting as many costs are shared including the expensive boat ride, and of course, the more you are the cheaper it gets for each person.

For the adventure it represents, the fact of staying several nights at the falls, and the total freedom, I believe that the independent overland trip is the best compromise between cost and experience.

One last thing to note is that by preparing your trip and calling in advance you can be more in a position of negotiating the price for the boat. My friend and I were not really in the best position to negotiate and they were firm on their prices, but it might not necessarily be the case for you!

Final Thoughts

That’s it! You now have a good idea of how much it costs to visit Kaieteur Falls, depending on what option you choose. It is definitely not a wallet-friendly destination, especially if you are a backpacker traveling on a shoestring. But believe me, the privilege of experiencing this place is well worth the financial effort!

Hello- Would you be able to hook me up to any of the operators for a day trip to The Falls ? Im a tour operator based in Florida and would package such trips after my experience ? Please let me know, Thx Ronny PS- Looking to visit soon… last weekend in May

Hi Ron, I am sorry but I won’t be able to do that because I went to Kaieteur Falls on my own without a tour operator. So I have no relationship with any of them. But you can find here a list of major tour operators in Guyana, I suggest you contact them directly.

Kaieteur National Park

Kaieteur Falls National Park

Kaieteur National Park occupies a prominent position in the centre of the Guyana Shield. The Guiana Highlands, or the Guiana Shield, being roughly 2 billion years old, is the Earth's oldest surface.

It is located in north-eastern South America and includes a large mountain plateau and rainforest system that is part of a vast watershed between the Amazon and the Orinoco rivers.

Specifically, it covers 30 000 square miles (75,000 square kilometres). It is bounded roughly by the Amazon River to the South, the Japur-Caqueta River to the southwest, the Sierra de Chiribiquete Mountains to the West, the Orinoco and Guaviare Rivers to the northwest and the north, and the Atlantic Ocean to the East.

One feature of the shield is its distinctive plateaus or table-top mountains, called tepuis by the Indians. These are the remnants of the sandstone sediments that covered the metamorphic rocks of the area and were created by erosion over 200 million years ago. These mountains range from 6,500 to 8,800 feet (2000 to 2700 meters).

Roraima vs Kaieteur

Roraima is the tallest, at 9,219 feet (2810 meters). This area contains an estimated 20,000 different vascular plant species, of which 35 per cent are endemic, making it one of the three richest tropical wilderness areas. It also has the lowest human population density of any tropical rainforest region, consisting mainly of Amerindian cultures, making it one of the few places on Earth where all options for conservation are available.

Kaieteur National Park is in the heart of the Guiana Shield, in the Pakaraima Mountains region. This area is composed mainly of plateaus and steeply sloped escarpments and is noted for its many rivers and waterfalls, which drop off the edges of the escarpment. This majestic wonder, the centrepiece of the Park, proudly boasts being one of the most spectacular waterfalls in the world. It is located where the Roraima formation gives way to the lowlands and drops 741 feet (225 meters) to splash to a basin below; after that, it travels some 20 miles (32 kilometres) through a deep gorge before leaving the escarpment behind.

Kaieteur Falls had not changed significantly from when it was seen by the European explorer Barrington Browne in 1870. However, the outstanding natural value of the area was recognized by the British colonial administration who, in 1929, designated an area of the Potaro River, including Kaieteur Falls, as a national park covering 45 square miles (72 kilometres) with the principal purpose of preserving the natural scenery and the fauna and flora of the area. At that time, it represented one of the first conservation efforts within Latin America and the Caribbean.

The Legend of Kaieteur Falls

The name of the fall commemorates Chief Kai, one of the prominent chieftains (also known as Toshaos) of the once-powerful Patamona tribe. He committed self-sacrifice by canoeing over the falls so that Makonaima, the Great Spirit, would be appeased and save his tribe from being destroyed by a raiding party of savage Caribs.

"Teur" translates as "falls"— hence the name Kaieteur. Folklore has it that the old man and his "wood skin" canoe were turned into stone and now form part of the rocks of Kaieteur. Perhaps he won appeasement, for his name still marks the magical curtain of water known as Kaieteur.

The legend of the falls has been celebrated by generations of poets, writers, painters and musicians, most memorably in the "The Legend of Kaieteur", a choral fantasy by the Guyanese composer, Philip Pilgrim (1917-1944), set to the words of a children's epic poem by Arthur Seymour.

Embrace the Adventure and Create Unforgettable Memories

The Kaieteur Falls Overnight Trip transcends the ordinary, promising an extraordinary journey that will ignite your spirit and leave you in awe of the power and beauty of nature. Don't let this once-in-a-lifetime experience slip through your fingers - embrace the adventure and let the magic of the Kaieteur Falls Overnight Trip captivate you.

ICC Men’s T20 World Cup trophy lands at majestic Kaieteur Falls

'  data-src=

Kaieteur Falls, the largest single-drop waterfall in the world, was the backdrop for the International Cricket Council (ICC) Men’s T20 World Cup trophy on Wednesday afternoon.

After leaving State House, where the First Lady hosted the Hope Children’s Home, the trophy traveled to one of the most iconic spots on earth.

Chaperoned by ICC Head of Public Relations and Communications Damon Leon and West Indies players Kevin Sinclair and Mandy Mangru, the dimming sunset and the falls in the background produced arguably one of the most memorable shots of the festive tour thus far.

Assistant Director of Sport Franklin Wilson was also present.

The trophy tour began in March in the United States of America and has visited Argentina, Brazil, and fellow host nations in the Caribbean.

guyana kaieteur falls tours price

The tour will conclude Thursday (May 24) with two public engagements – at St. George’s Cathedral from 13:00h and the Kingston Seawall Esplanade from 17:00h.

The first aims to engage schoolchildren, while the second is a mini-concert, and fans can also win tickets.

Guyana is preparing to ‘knock it out of this world’ by showcasing its unique culture and warmly welcome the world when group matches are hosted from June 2-8, followed by semi-final two on June 27.

Guyana will host the second match in the tournament, but first for the West Indies, on June 2.

The Men’s T20 World Cup 2024, co-hosted by the United States of America and the West Indies, will run from June 1 to 29.
