The South Rupununi is home to the Wapishana, who maintain their traditional ways of life while becoming increasingly active in national politics. 

You can learn more about their past and future by visiting a village or home, touring a farm, chatting over a meal, and taking part in the laborious process of turning cassava into food and drink.

We have newly set up Wichabai Ranch on an historical site: the home of the Rupununi Rebellion and the last Balata trading station in Guyana.  You can learn more about the history of ranching in Guyana, and spend a day on the ranch.

Perhaps start with an early walk and a swim in the lake, spend some time in the corral with the vaqueros (and learn to use a lasso!), in the afternoon ride a horse to our farm where you can pick vegetables for dinner, and on your return help herd the cows back into their paddock before settling in for a cool drink, a homemade meal and a long 'gyaff' under the stars
