BIRDING SITES

Caiman House, Yupukari Village

Located along the Rupununi River in the northern Rupununi savannahs,
about one hour from Karanambu Ranch (via road or river), is the
Amerindian village of Yupukari. The small village of about 500 Makushi
inhabitants rests atop a hill and offers fantastic views of the Kanuku
and Pakaraima mountains. In many ways, life in the village has changed
little over the decades ‚?" bullock carts carry people to and fro,
houses are built from handmade clay bricks, and cooking is often done
over an open flame ‚?" but thanks to the Caiman House Field Station,
the village has been enjoying growth in development projects, new
jobs, ecotourism, and conservation ethic. . . more >>
