About Rock View Lodge
Rock View Lodge is nestled between the Amerindian villages of Annai and Rupertee on the North Rupununi Savannahs of Guyana, where the foothills of the Pakaraima mountain range meet the tropical rainforest. The Iwokrama International Centre Field Research Station, the Canopy Walkway, the fourteen villages of the indigenous Makushi people, excellent birding locations and other resorts such as Karanambu Resort and Cattle Ranch are easily accessible from Rock View. The Lodge may be reached by air or road from Georgetown and Brasil (Boa Vista and Bon Fin).
A range of activities and itineraries is provided. Visitors are accommodated in comfortable, well furnished, self-contained suites. We have a Toyota Hilux pickup, a four-wheel drive Bedford truck, horses, bicycles and boats for your transportation needs and requirements.
Evenings may be spent in the old family ranch house with a fine art collection, library and good music. All buildings have electricity and running water from a deep well. The grounds are beautifully landscaped with hundreds of palms, fruit and flower trees that enhance the natural beauty of the rolling hills and savannahs, the Rupununi River and wooded mountains nearby.
Rock View Lodge is managed by the owner, Colin Edwards, an Englishman who has been closely associated with Guyana since he came here as an agricultural volunteer in 1969. His love for the Guyanese interior, the arts and the people of both Guyana and Brasil may be seen in this unusual lodge and working farm which is both environmentally friendly and has a special relationship with the community development efforts of the surrounding Amerindian villages. The efficient and friendly staff are both members of the family as well as neighbours around Rock View. They are mostly trilingual, speaking a combination of English, Portuguese and their native Makushi language.
The Rock View Lodge together with the Village of Surama are featured in “Green Places to Stay”, a U.K. tour guide published by Alastair Sawday, which recommends inspiring places worldwide that are striving to be environmentally and socially responsible.
