SUGGESTED ACCOMMODATION

CAIMAN HOUSE FIELD STATION, RUPUNUNI

CAIMAN HOUSE FIELD STATION

NO ORDINARY HOLIDAY

The name alone gives you a clue. Staying at Caiman House is no ordinary holiday; it is an extraordinary adventure into the nature of the Rupununi region.

Yes, there will be plenty of relaxing, eyelids-closed-against-the-sun moments. There will be dozing-in-a-hammock time. There will be very comfortable guest rooms with romantic, tented, four poster beds, and great food.

A REAL FIELD STATION

But Caiman House is a real field station. So you can expect adventure. You will be participating in an on-going research programme into the world’s largest alligator – the black caiman. You’ll watch these magnificent beasts being caught, and you’ll help weigh, measure, determine their sex and tag them.

You’ll also have the opportunity to visit genuine Amerindian communities and meet local craftspeople like the furniture builders of Yupukari. And you’ll have the inner satisfaction that while you’re revelling in your visit – and learning from it – you’re actually contributing to development projects like classroom libraries for schools, in three local villages.
