National Geographic names Guyana Tours ‘Best in World’ for 2014


[]Highlighting Wilderness Explorers’ award-winning Amerindian Guyana tour, National Geographic Traveler presents 2014′s must-see places on planet earth. Guyana earns a coveted spot on this exclusive, very short list for the very first time in 2014.

Is Green the New Gold? National Geographic says that Guyana may be the best-kept secret in South America, with most of the country still covered in wild forest.

“Stunning natural wonders – stretching from newly restored mangroves near Georgetown to the mighty Kaieteur Falls to the pristine Iwokrama rain forest, Guyana offers curious travelers an opportunity to experience one of only four remaining intact rain forest ecosystems on the planet.”

And, as National Geographic points out, “Chances are you’ll have the place to yourself; Guyana has yet to make it onto bucket lists, in part because it remains, as Surama guide Gary Sway puts it, blessedly undeveloped.”

Even many Guyanese have little idea how vast our rain forest is. The Iwokrama reserve, down the road, covers a million acres.

In recognizing Guyana as a top destination for 2014, the award-winning Amerindian Guyana tour is singled out for an extraordinary adventure in the unexplored territory.
