My name is Arno and I'm from the Netherlands. I went on a fronteering trip to Guyana. I always wanted to go into the jungle and explore and spot wildlife. Once I arrived in Georgetown I was picked up from the airport by one of the employees of fronteering. I spent the night in a hotel in Georgetown. Next morning I was taken to the airport to take a flight further inland. After a short car drive we had to continue by boat onto the Rewa River. When we arrived at the Rewa Lodge we had a great meal and saw some big birdspiders. We also saw the "house" crocodile a big black cayman named Freddy. Next day we travelled further into the jungle we saw tons of amazing birds, black caymans and giant river otters. As soon as we arrived at the camp, we learned how to fish for piranha's, peacock bash and vampire fish. The guides and staff from Rewa provided us with 3 great meals a day so we felt like kings of the jungle. But as you probably all know there's only one king of the jungle; the Jaguar!! That night we went for some night fishing and wildlife spotting. We had to be really quiet when we finally heard some really heavy breathing. Our guide told us it was a big Jaguar who was trying to warn us we were entering his territory. After some time the breathing stopped and he was gone. Too bad we didn't see him but what an experience. After the jungle we stayed at a ranch in the Rupununi. We there learned how to ride a horse and all kinds of things about the cattle. We went swimming and hunting around the ranch. Everything together it was an awesome experience and breathtaking visit to Guyana. I ended my trip with a visit to the Kaieteur falls. It's hard to tell about the view from the plane on the way there. If you're an adventurer and a wildlife freak I can very much reccomend this awesome trip through Guyana.
