    shock to the system We d just spent two days at the riverside jungle camp in Surama in humid semi darkness with little sunlight penetrating the thick canopy and the air pierced by the roar of the howler monkey and the singing of frogs So when we emerge in the bright sunlight with scrubland and tall grass stretching as far as the eye can see punctuated with the tall ant fortresses the lumbering forms of the giant anteaters and the occasional thatched roof of an Amerindian house in the distance the contrast is spectacular Our first camp on our trip round the savannah is at Oasis near the village of Annai a pit stop for the overloaded minibuses that ply the red dirt highway between Georgetown on the coast and Lethem on the Brazilian border as well as for the local Makushi Amerindians who cycle long distances on their sturdy Brazilian contraptions We pass one such cyclist clutching a bow and arrow still a favourite method of hunting around here The nearby village of Rupertee is known for its carvings made of a red hardwood peculiar to these parts However when we arrive it becomes apparent we re unlikely to find any as the whole village is attending a football match between two teams of teenage girls from rival villages They play with more gusto than finesse running barefoot on gravel and splashing through the waterlogged parts of the pitch It s riveting viewing made even more so by the potent fermented cassava drink that s being passed around On the way back we re caught in a deluge of biblical proportions the footpaths become rivers and what at first appears to be a deformed cat walking beside me turns out to be an absolutely enormous toad As darkness falls the savannah is lit only by the stars and the sparks of fireflies Moving onwards towards the Brazilian border we detour along the Rupununi River to Karanambu Lodge an isolated enchanting place that attracts wildlife and wildlife lovers in equal measure The stills from movement sensor cameras around the property are like a Who s Who of Guyana s must see mammals jaguars ocelots tapirs giant anteaters capybaras The dinner table at the lodge is usually presided over by 82 year old Diane McTurk a local legend and larger than life character famous for her work with orphaned giant river otters It s not just otters her colleague Adrienne tells us in her absence People here come from miles around to bring Diane orphaned or injured anteaters tapirs and even jabiru storks We re told the story of the baby tapir raised by Diane that came back to her as an adult to be nursed after getting savaged by a jaguar It knew where to come for help Our final stop before flying back to Georgetown from Lethem is the Makushi village of Shulinab We wander around the village stop by the local one room school pursued by a gaggle
