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.

    Kaieteur Falls is one of the last remote waterfalls to visit without a crowd. It was way more difficult to get there and back than we thought it would be, but we managed to do it WITHOUT a tour compan...  more »

    So you have 3 options, you can trek there over 3 to 4 days and fly back, you will need to pay the full flight fair as it means a tourist cannot use the outward seat. If you have the time and money, th...  more »

    These falls are a definite must-see if you're ever in Guyana. After a slightly scary one-hour plane ride from Ogle airport over the vast lushness of the Guyanese landscape, you'll arrive at the small ...  more »

    Was a great trip there. To a plane from Georgetown and then a small hike to the falls. The trip was smoother than expected. Very secluded and unspoilt. The falls a breathtaking. I could have spent longer.

    We did the day trip to Kaieteur. We only stayed two hours and I wish that we had stayed for at least two days. When we visited it rained so much and the entire way was flooded making the walk from the airstrip to the fall an adventure all by itself. The waterfall was covered by a mist which cleared every now and again to allow the visitors a glimpse the breathtaking beauty of the falls. If you're ever in Guyana then this is a must do!

    The most beautiful waterfall I have ever seen. I have been here twice and I experienced two different water falls due to the difference in climate. A memory I will never forget.

    Do yourself a favour, take more than a day to be here, the guest house is indeed shabby, but the place is certainly worth it. Two hours is just not enough, not even one day is.
