When Do You Want To Go?

In the heart of Guyana’s verdant interior, smack bang in the middle of the country and surrounded by dense ancient jungle, you will find one of Latin America’s best kept natural secrets. Standing at five times the height of Niagara Falls, Kaieteur Falls is the world’s highest free-falling waterfall and until you stand at its perimeter, it is impossible to fathom the mystical effect that 30,000 gallons of water thundering down a 250-metre cliff can create.

However, the magic of Kaieteur Falls doesn’t just lie in its sheer power and force of nature though, not in its impressive roar. It’s the ambience of the region that may create the most lasting impression. As an attraction, the falls have not yet succumbed to commercialisation and the area is utterly pristine. Perhaps most bewildering of all, upon visiting the region, you are highly likely to be amongst only a handful of people there at any given time. 

Holidays to Guyana start from £2,499pp. Get in touch to find out prices for your perfect trip.

When is the best time to visit Kaieteur Falls?

Whilst the falls are at the most powerful in the rainy season, it would be best to visit between the months of September to October or from February to early April. This is when Guyana is at its most verdant and the falls are still full of water, whilst you will be pleased to avoid the downpour whilst travelling through the rest of the country. 

How Do I Reach The Kaieteur Falls?

The majority of people who visit the falls will arrive by plane on specifically charted internal flights, although road options are available (approximately 8 hours from the capital) or even multi-night hiking options for the more adventurous. The flight itself is beautiful, as you pass seemingly endless plains of tropical rainforest accumulating with sky-high views of the falls themselves. Upon arrival, a short hike is required, but again this only adds to the charm of the falls and if you are lucky, you may even be able to spot the native Guianan cock-of-the-rock birds en route.
