Day 4

After a sumptuous eye-opening breakfast, enjoy an open boat trip to a nearby Amerindian village. Agatash village is located on the western bank of the Essequibo River and is approximately 10 minutes from Baganara. The community has approximately 200 inhabitants from all the different tribes of Amerindians. They live mainly along the riverbank and their main source of income is farming and fishing. They sell their produce to the nearby village Bartica There is also another small community on the hilly side of Agatash, called “Dog Point” which started from one family who came from the Northwest region of Guyana and settled. They exist mainly on farming cassava for the production of Cassareep and Cassava bread. If you are lucky on the day of your visit you will be able to see a demonstration of the making of cassava products. After leaving Agatash Village, you will be transferred to Parrot Island. Located just a few miles (15 minutes by boat) from Baganara on the Eastern bank of the Essequibo River, Parrot Island is an uninhabited island with approximately 200ft of natural vegetation and a beautiful sand beach that stretches about 2 miles when the tide is low. It is known as a home for many birds, but predominantly the parrots that go there at sunset to roost. Overnight at Baganara – B L D

Day 5

Consider this the ’lazy day’. You will spend the entire day lazily while you absorb nature at its very best on the island, or if that requires too much effort, let time cease to matter while you gently sway in a hammock embraced by the soothing winds of the rainforest as you forget what day of the week it is. After dinner, embark on a night spotting excursion for a chance to spot nocturnal species and other wildlife creatures. Overnight at Baganara Island Resort. B. L. D
