Arrowpoint Nature Resort ( http://www.roraimaairways.com/tourism/arrowpoint)

Arrowpoint Nature Resort is named after the many Arrow Trees found in the area, which is used by the Amerindians to make their arrows for hunting. One of the finer examples of Guyana’s eco-tourism product, Arrowpoint coexists with its interior setting without ruffling the natural environment. The Resort itself is set against the backdrop of the Rainforest which is a haven for birdwatchers and nature lover since there is an abundance of wildlife including 350 species of birds. The ride to Arrowpoint is usually punctuated by a stop at Santa Mission itself.  For the visitor Santa Mission’s Craft Shop is a mandatory stop. It boasts a collection of the finest Amerindian craft to be found anywhere in Guyana. Visitors to Arrowpoint are customarily greeted by a small welcoming party bearing complimentary beverages. Next comes a mandatory briefing embodying safety and resort activities. The Arrowpoint routine begins with the “Wabani Jungle Expedition” – a walk along the winding trails under the guidance of Amerindian guides. The Wabani is a sort of perch built in trees to allow the Amerindian hunter to observe his prey without his scent being detected.

Activities -The activities at Arrowpoint are numerous, educational and exciting. Whether it’s the thrill of Bird Watching, the excitement of Mountain Biking, Hiking, Kayaking, Pedal boating, Surf-Biking or simply relaxing in a hammock with a book, visitors will discover nature while having great fun and adventure.

Kaieteur Falls

Depart on a 27 miles flying adventure on our BN Islander Twin Engine Aircraft and 1 hour 10 minutes later arrive at the magnificent, high-volume Kaieteur Falls. ‘Discovered’ by European Charles Barrington Brown, the majestic Kaieteur Falls is 226 meters (741 ft) when measured from its plunge over a sandstone cliff to the first break. It then flows over a series of steep cascades that, when included in the measurements, bring the total height to 251 meters (822 ft).

Amerindian legend of the Patamona tribe has it that “Kai” one of the tribe’s chiefs (after whom the falls is named) committed self sacrifice by canoeing himself over the falls. It was believed this would encourage the Great Spirit “Makanaima’ to save the tribe from being destroyed by the savage rival tribe the “Carabishis”.

Located on the Potaro River, a tributary of the mighty Essequibo, the Kaieteur National Park is a sanctuary of unique and magnificent flora, fauna and wildlife indigenous only to that area. Kaieteur National Park supports a micro environment with Tank Bromeliads, the largest in the world, in which the tiny golden frog spends its entire life. The rarely seen Cock-of-the-rock can sometimes be seen nesting nearby. Visitor may also see the famous flights of the Swifts or Makonaima birds which nest under the vast shelf of rock carved by the water over the centuries.
