Parc Amazonien de Guyane
August to December and March April
Great hiking in French Guyana. With direct flights Paris to Cayenne, this is one of the fastest ways, from Europe, into the South-American rainforest. The highlands of Guyana are not part of the Amazon Basis so during the rainy season the area does not flood and animals can flee to higher areas.
Leaving from Saül, a one hour flight from Cayenne above the canopy of the rain forest, there are several hikes in the rainforest. My 5 day hike was to Maïs Falls, a small waterfall. During the hike you can experience the forest and see some monkeys, lots of butterflies and hear a lot of birds. Observation is not obvious due to the dense vegetation.
Lots of information on (www.parc-amazonien-guyane.fr).
