Highlights Of One Week In Guyana With Guided Cultural Tours part 1 of 2

Join Americans (from Tennessee) Michael Drake and David Galluzzi as you view just a few of the highlights of their May 18-27 2012 tailor-made combined Adventure, Culture & Nature Tour of Guyana (the ONLY English speaking Amazon Basin country in South America) - booked with guidedculturaltours.com. As we are proud to boast - these intrepid young men became the FIRST outsiders to see a waterfall near the Bununi River (among other firsts) that only 5 local tribesmen have ever seen! They camped right next to a tree being clawed by a Jaguar as a territorial marker, and bathed in a river inhabited by Giant Black Caiman, Amazon stingray and Electric Eels - and they caught by hand over a dozen species of snakes during their nightly guided hikes. They also did mountain-bike riding for several miles and drove cattle on horseback in a Makushi Tribal Village, filmed a Giant Anteater, monkeys, and saw Toucans, Hawks, Vultures, Macaws, Parrots etc. The Jaguarundi wild cat pictured was caged briefly for filming purposes and to determine it's gender then released back into the wild. If you want a run-of the Mill Guyana experience go with one of the many other options available to you...but if you want to go OFF the beaten track and see things & places NO-ONE ELSE has - contact us via our website at www.guidedculturaltours.com Every single tour we have done has been unique, we offer you an Adventure not a vacation!

Centre for Fortean Zoology

The Centre for Fortean Zoology expedition has turned up some amazing information and strange creatures never before heard of in the west. The team interviewed witnesses to a strange race of undiscovered mountain dwelling pygmies, These tiny red faced men appear to inhabit caves and have been seen in both north and south Guyana. At 3.5 feet tall the pygmies may be related to Homo floresensis discovered a couple of years ago in Indonesia.
 
They also heard tell of the Di-Di (pronounced 'Die-Die') a yeti like hairy giant 8-10 feet tall. As recently as two years ago one of these beast was supposed to have abducted a native girl who was never seen again.
 
Stranger still is the water tiger. A pack hunting, semi-aquatic flesh eating mammal. The expedition spoke to witnesses and concluded that the creature is unknown to science and may be a new kind of felid or mustelid.
 
We also heard tales of what must be a new species of tiny red Caiman that emits a loud bellowing totally at odds with it's diminutive size. We were also the first human beings outside of the Makushi tribe to see an ancient cave burial site discovered by a local hunter in 2005 and seen by only a handful of tribesmen from one village. The group intends to return in 2008 to seek out a monster anaconda said to lurk in the remote Corona Falls.
 
The expedition was guided by Damon Corrie, a descendant heir of the now ceremonial hereditary Chieftaincy of the Eagle Clan of the Arawak tribe. Damon (who literally chased down a Giant Anteater for us so we could get close-up footage) runs the excellent 'Guided Cultural Tours'. This company allows explorers to see the real Guyana and meet the true people of the country, the Amerindians. If you want a taste of the real Guyana, off the beaten track and away from tourist traps then 'Guided Cultural Tours' is the way to do it.
 
Guyana is a true lost world and Damon Corrie a real life Professor Challenger."
