Kaieteur Falls, Potaro-Siparuni

4.9
Head into the Amazon to see Kaieteur Falls, the world's widest single drop waterfall and a scenic wonder among the untouched environment of the jungle. Located on the Potaro River and in Kaieteur National Park, the waterfall can only be seen by taking a plane ride from either Ogle or Georgetown Airport. The water plunges from 251 m (822 ft) high off the cliff's edge, and boasts among the most powerful waterfalls in the world due to its volume and speed. Premium viewing spots are available and you can even dare to stand next to its precipice and stare out over the cascading water. For travelers who use our international travel planner, Potaro-Siparuni holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Kaieteur Falls and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • The waterfall is awesome and beautiful. The one our flight and the path to the tree spots are no problem. But the Amerindians of the park, has a strict timetable! Every group has two hours, maximum. No chance to look for the plants, insects, frogs and birds arround the path. And the “picnic-pack“ is industrial and taste's so. They try to lead two groups at once. You can't understand the explanations spoken at the top of a group of 28 people. Sorry, ecological tourism looks different. Do like this, and the tourism kills you and the park!
  • A breathtaking scenery and yet still untouched and tranquil.
  • If you could custom-build the perfect waterfall, it might resemble Kaieteur Falls. Tucked away at the heart of Guyana, on the north-east shoulder of South America , this is the waterfall as supermodel - a single curtain of liquid where the River Potaro slips 741ft (226m) into a forested chasm.
  • Amazing view on ALL 3 levels. Don't be scared of heights because it's an hour flight each way I see only way to get there.
  • Really awesome place to be! Totally recommended
