Visit the beautiful, refreshing, remote indigenous village of Karasabai for a three-day weekend tour and immerse yourself in an exotic culture under the shade of the North Pakaraima Mountains. The amazing staff of our Karasabai Eco Lodge will take care of all your meals and our skilled and experienced tour guides will show you some of the most beautiful and interesting spots of Karasabai.

During your tour, you’ll take part in bird watching and horse riding activities, and cross the Ireng River to set foot into neighboring Brazil – a unique, exciting, and unparalleled experience of crossing informally from one border country to the other just for fun and without a passport. When its time to go home, you’ll be driven in the same comfortable air conditioned 4-wheel drive vehicle that you came with through the breathtaking Rupununi Savannah trails back to Lethem.

The Karasabai weekend tour leaves Lethem, Region 9 every Friday at 1 PM (after lunch). You will be responsible for arriving in Lethem on your own. We can pick you up at any location in Lethem, Region 9. The Karasabai three-day weekend tour can take a maximum of four persons only. So if you are just one, two, or three persons, you may be joining other people who are booked for the same tour. If your group consists of all four persons required to fill the vehicle, you will get a special bulk discount.

On the afternoon of Day 2, after lunch, we’ll drive you over to some ancient caves containing sacred clay pots and tell you the story behind it. Then, we’ll take a look at the petroglyphs carved on rocks perhaps over 6000 years ago – which prove indigenous presence in Guyana way back then.
