Pakaraima Mountain Range

The Pakaraima Mountain Range on the western edge of Guyana, extending for 400 kilometres, is home to the famous Mount Roraima and is where thrill-seekers head to maneuver their 4×4 vehicles over week-long safaris. This mountain range offers some of the most adventurous experiences in Guyana. Here, you can stay at remote hilltop villages for the night or hang your hammock in places that have a ‘middle of nowhere’ appeal. Wildlife and birding enthusiasts visit for reasons that are more sedate. The untouched folds of these mountains have the highest level of plant endemism in Guyana and are home to some of the grandest waterfalls in the country.

The Pakaraima Mountain Range on the western edge of Guyana, extending for 400 kilometres, is home to the famous Mount Roraima and is where thrill-seekers head to maneuver their 4×4 vehicles over week-long safaris. This mountain range offers some of the most adventurous experiences in Guyana.

The untouched folds of these mountains have the highest level of plant endemism in Guyana and are home to some of the grandest waterfalls in the country.

Getting To And Around

The only way to get around the Pakaraimas is by 4×4 vehicles or via regularly scheduled or charter flights to airstrips in remote villages that are within or close to the mountain range.

Air

You can charter a small plane from the Eugene F. Correia International Airport in Georgetown to the small airstrips in the villages of Annai or Karasabai. Alternatively, Evergreen Adventures and Roraima Tours offer day trips to Orinduik Falls, which is set amid the rolling, grass-covered hills of the Pakaraima. These tours include a visit to Kaieteur National Park as well. From the airstrips, you can take a 4x4 vehicle and drive to lodges and villages where you are staying.

Road

A few regional buses and private minibuses offer services in the Pakaraimas. For those who are looking to get around by road, hiring a 4x4 vehicle in Lethem, joining the annual safari with Rainforest Tours, or securing an outfitter or tour operator’s services is recommended.
