Thanks to Michael and family for this review from September 2023:
Hard to know where to start but we were a family of 6 so slept in 3 of the units . The last reviewer said dont expect creature comforts but these were by any standards luxurious and beautifully built from hardwoods, furnished and appointed with so many thoughtful touches . Right up there with the best safari lodges we have stayed in when visting Africa . We ate delicious vegetarian friendly meals in the main lodge using local ingredients and prepared by the team of local cooks and went on a variety of outings all of which we loved .... the walk to check the camera traps and sunset drinks , the Red Siskin viewing trip with the most amazing picnic breakfast . horseriding around the estate , and even canoeing on and swimming in the lake accompanied by Hydra the gorgeous pet Capybara whom we all fell in love with . But the main standout are the people ; Justin and Erin were charming and clearly make a huge difference to the local community and made us feel part of their family and they have a dedicated and loyal group of friends and helpers for whom nothing was too much trouble . Special mention to Leroy , Trevor and Rasta
The best house in the best company in the best part of Guyana. Thanks, and until next time…
‘I’ve got married, I’ve had a kid, but a day at the ranch easily catches the “top 10 days of my life” list
…we had the time of our lives…. Ohh… the view, the mountains, the landscapes, the rivers, the bull riding, the horseback riding, the healthy food, the entire family were all great. Definitely A+++++, we reckon we shall be back’
