Guyana is known as the ‘land of many waters’ because of the numerous rivers that traverse long distances in the country, before finally spilling into the Atlantic Ocean in the north. The Essequibo, Demerara, Berbice and Corentyne are the most important ones, rising in the highlands or mountains of the country. The rivers and their tributaries offer a rich ecosystem for flora and fauna to survive along, offering travellers a 360 degree view of nature in the country.
