Karanambu Lodge

Lodge in The North Rupununi

This former ranch is now run as a ecotourism destination by an extremely welcoming team who continue the work of the legendary Diane McTurk, who worked tirelessly for giant river otters. Accommodations are in spacious ranch-meets-Amerindian-style huts, and have mosquito nets and plenty of books. Activities include bird-watching, giant otter- and anteater-spotting, and swimming in the nearby Rupununi River.

The transfer from Lethem airstrip costs US$350 per vehicle.
