Welcome to Kaieteur National Park

It has, however, been subject to the strategies of government and mining interests to limit its boundaries since it first became a park in 1929; after several expansions and contractions, it now encompasses 627 sq km and is actively protected by the government – largely because the park's tourism potential depends on it being intact.

Nearly all visitors to Guyana visit Kaieteur on a day trip by air from Georgetown, and while these are wonderful, the real adventure – not to mention the chance to be alone in this staggering natural setting – comes with organizing an overnight stay.
