What tour offers
We provide sport fishing and camping excursions where you will take your boat to outlying parts, encamp alongside the river or inland bay, research wildlife, observe nearby areas of the wilderness, do competitive fishing or simply relax in the Savannah and tropical woods shelter. By choosing from four excursions, you can pick the kind of expedition you’ ve been wanting to do all along!
A trip through the Guyana tropical woods is an experience in and of its own right! You’ll always keep in mind a trip through the woods and creeks while watching the wide variety of flora and fauna on the trail. Essequibo River passage is another grand experience alongside the route. Follow the Rupununi River down to Bat Creek and up the creek through thick tropical forest with an 11-mile cut-through trail toward a number of eco-friendly fishponds, and you’ll see wildlife. !
Everything is being done to conserve this area. No standing facilities are constructed, the campsite is established on tall dried sandy soil with a extra big tarpaulin canopy, hammock poles with mosquito netting are installed in the dirt ( you could use two-person tents if you want), and a lighted generator is installed. A kitchen, a mobile shower/bathroom, and a sink with a water faucet and mirror are installed as well.
Breakfast, lunch and dinner will be prepared every day. There will be MRE’s ( food prepared with a military thermal packet) available to consume on the boat if you want to do some fishing while you are out to lunch.
Mosquitoes are generally not a concern throughout the lean period. The Bat Creek environment offers pure, transparent, running water. You will require sunscreen and a sun hat. The temperature rating is 85 degrees in the daytime and drops to the low 60s at night, so you’ll probably want a sleeping bag pad to help you nap. It usually rains late at night in Georgetown, but it can be short-lived. In the Bath Creek region, it rains only sporadically from winter to spring , as the climate is generally sunny to lightly cloudy. The atmosphere is very eco-friendly, and on bright evenings you’ll be able to glimpse a star-filled sky unlike anything you’ve ever witnessed in your life.
