Exploring the Essequibo: Guyana's Mighty Watercourse

The Essequibo River, a titan among South American rivers, gracefully meanders through the heart of Guyana, leaving an indelible mark on the nation's landscapes, biodiversity, and history. This majestic watercourse, the longest and most comprehensive in Guyana, is a testament to the country's natural splendor and cultural significance. Encompassing more than half of the country, the Essequibo's basin is a complex network of waterways, intricately woven by tributaries that further enrich the Essequibo's course.
