26 Oct Discovering Guyana
eXplora expedition proposes an expedition to Guyana with the aim of exploring a land that is still almost completely unexplored, far from mass tourism and rich cultural heritage. Before eXplora no Italian tour operator brought an “adventure” expedition to the savannah of Guyana: not only will we have the chance to visit a country unknown to most, but we will also be among the first! During the stay we will leave from the capital (Georgetown) to venture into the savannah driving our quads and 4x4s admiring the natural scenery that will open up all around us. We will sleep in the hammock under the stars, then on the ranch where we will meet the “cowboys” of Guyana and ride in wonderful landscapes all for us. Finally, a stretch of kayak is foreseen, river conditions permitting.
