Rock View Lodge

Rock View Lodge

Pakaraima Mountains, Guyana

Lodge Lodge


Rock View is arguably one of the most relaxing and comfortable places to stay in the North Rupununi with a unique blend of people, culture, cuisine, art and agriculture and tour activities and a commitment to excellence. It is a family owned and operated business – the Edwards’ are a blend of Amerindian, Brazilian, British and Basque! Rock View stands as a proud example of Guyana’s brand of tourism at its best with its blend of heritage, skills, life experiences, local knowledge, social connections and personalities.

We offer 8 private guest rooms featuring netted twin and double beds, attached bath, flush toilets, and electricity in each room. Netted hammocks are hung on the front verandah of each room, perfect for a relaxing afternoon siesta or cool, breezy night’s sleep. Additional accommodation is available at our Oasis annex.

Palm-thatched benabs are available for relaxation, meetings, workshops, and retreats. The Rock View swimming pool with its rocks and boulders, clumps of cacti and succulents is both cool and warm. Rocking gently in the shade of the cashew tree you can relax in a hammock with a refreshing drink and a book after a day picnicking, boating, riding or hiking.

The Iwokrama Forest and North Rupununi Wetlands also “support populations of plant and/or animal species important for maintaining biological diversity” including approximately 200 mammal species, 500 bird species, over 150 species of amphibians and reptiles and over 400 species of fish. A description of the Iwokrama Forest flora is available and includes more than 1500 species of plants (Clarke 2001). The area therefore represents a substantial portion of the total biodiversity in Guyana and being located in the centre of the Guayana Shield is fundamental to the biodiversity of the region.
