The sprawling grasslands of Guyana cover the belly and some southern parts of the country, offering a dramatic change of scene from thick rainforests, the vast ocean and mountains of the north and deep south. There is ample for the eyes and the soul for the travellers. The flat pale-yellow grasslands allow easy spotting of a range of animals, especially the anteaters. Unique avian species that like a combination of grasslands and canopies exist in the Rupununi, making it a birding hotspot. The ranching culture in the savannahs is starkly different from the Caribbean vibe of the north, with rodeo events headlining the region.
