Essequibo River Tour
An early start to this day will take us by bus to the departure point of the small market town of Parika. From here we will take an open boat up the mighty Essequibo River. Our first stop will take us to an Old Dutch Fort where artifacts are still being found onto this day. After a tour of the fort we will head off for a visit to a “ River Beach” called Saxacalli. Further up the river we meet the junction of the Mazaruni River and visit the frontier town of Bartica. Bartica is the hub of activities and recreation of miners who work the many gold and diamond claims of the interior.
Then further up the river, we pass through both rapids and still waters to the site of our picnic lunch. We take some time for a short hike through the rainforest, to a wonderful (if chilly) inland waterfall where the adventurous may climb the falls for a refreshing dip in a natural pool, with howler monkeys and parrots chattering overhead. Then we take a leisurely trip down the river with the sun on our backs…a fine end to a fine day.
