Located in the southern region of the Rupununi savannah, Dadanawa Ranch was once the largest cattle ranch in the world, but is still the largest in Guyana encompassing over 1700 square miles of beautiful scenery with the Kanuku Mountains in the distance.
- Go hiking & boating in the pristine wilderness of the Kanuku Mountains
- Live the cowboy life for a while herding cattle with the ranch’s vacqueros
- Search out a Harpy Eagle nest in the surrounding forests
- Enjoy the legendary story telling of the local Amerindian people
Although cattle is still hugely important in this southern savannah region, tourism is becoming another vital source of income and this is the perfect place to enjoy some fabulous riding with the ranch’s vacqueros (cowboys) as you help on the ranch. This is a paradise for those who love the great outdoors as there are a host of other activities here including horse trails or hiking into the hills, camping & boating trips along the Rupununi River and in the pristine wilderness of the Kanuku Mountains. It is also possible to go in search of the Harpy Eagle in the forest and the Amerindian paintings and petroglyphs in the open savannah.
The people of the Rupununi retain a hospitality long forgotten in other lands and their storytelling is legendary. To spend time with these people and the other Amerindian communities is a real privilege and a memorable highlight.
