From Georgetown, the flight over the rainforest in a 12-seater is 1 hour 45 minutes to Lethem airstrip where we meet you and carry you across the savannahs (no extra charge for giant anteater and jaguar sightings) to Caiman House in the heart of Yupukari Village.
We are a US 501(c)3 nonprofit foundation and a Guyanese non-profit corporation. 100% of our revenue surplus goes to support the village public library, wildlife and environmental conservation and cultural preservation projects.
No. Visitors are welcome to stay for as little as one night or as long as you'd like. Sleep under the hand-thatched roof or hang a hammock. Please view our price list for further information.
Meals are included. We employ the best cooks in the village to prepare delicious Guyanese specialties like fresh, hot “bakes” at breakfast, and local delicacies like “pepper pot.” Remember, we are located in the one of the most diverse fish habitats in the world!
Rainy season brings a waterfall-fed swimming hole, just steps from our Guest House, and dugout excursions straight over the deeply-flooded savannas into the flooded forests, where you are literally paddling your way over trails and around trees instead of hiking. There’s an explosion of extraordinary wildflowers and of aquatic wildlife, including 8+ species of frogs spawning and developing in puddles you can observe on nocturnal walks right in Yupukari.
Dry season brings dry, comfortable warmth, with the best fishing, and mangos falling off the trees. Travel by river and road with greater ease.
