(1/5 based on 100+ reviews on the web)
Become acquainted with Guyana’s varied nature at Guyana Botanical Gardens, a recreational park with an extensive collection of plant and animal life. Established in the late 19th century, the landscaping of the garden took 35 years to complete and was undertaken from start to finish by English gardener John Frederick Waby. A number of canals, kissing bridges, bandstands, and ponds dot the gardens, housing varied species of plants such as lilies, palms, lotus, and the national flower of Guyana, the Victoria Regia Lily. Animals at the park include jaguars, manatees, toucans, owls, tapirs, giant otters, and capuchin monkeys.
