Nestled between the Amerindian villages of Annai and Rupertee where the Pakaraima foothills meet the tropical rainforest, Rock View Lodge offers comfortable lodging, outdoor activities, a breezy garden-like setting, authentic Amerindian hospitality, and access to everything that central Guyana has to offer.
We are conveniently located a few meters from the Annai airstrip, served daily by Trans Guyana Airways flights from Georgetown. The lodge is located directly off the main road connecting Georgetown to Lethem, making us a perfect transportation hub for all your Rupununi adventures.
Rock View Lodge offers eight private guest rooms featuring netted beds, attached bath, flush toilets, electricity, and hot water. Hammocks are hung on the front verandah of each room, perfect for a relaxing afternoon siesta or cool, with nets for a breezy night’s sleep if so desired.
Several palm-thatched benabs are available for relaxation, meetings, workshops, and retreats. The Rock View swimming pool – surrounded by boulders and a succulent garden – 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, birding or hiking.
Meal service begins with coffee and tea at dawn for bird watchers, followed by home-cooked breakfast, lunch, and dinner served under the old mango trees. Given our proximity to the airstrip and road, you will often find yourself enjoying a meal with visitors from all over Guyana. Lodge owner Colin Edwards and his staff often join guests for meals in what has become a friendly, familiar tradition.
Situated on the western edge of the Rock View Ranch, just a few hundred meters from the main Rock View Lodge, the Oasis Annex offers meals, accommodation, and other traveller services to Guyanese and international tourists. Four private guest rooms are available; meals, snacks, hot and cold drinks are served all day and late in the evenings. The Oasis is a scheduled stop for most minivan journeys between Lethem and Georgetown.
Rock View Lodge is the primary venue for the Rupununi Music and Arts Festival, held in February each year. The lodge also operates the region’s first and only sustainable aquaculture project, offering visitors the chance to catch their own fresh fish meal. A new Culinary Tourism programme invites visitors to work with our Amerindian cooks to become acquainted with local, indigenous cuisine from home grown produce.
Rock View Lodge has been welcoming visitors to the savannahs and rainforests of Guyana’s Rupununi since 1992. The lodge is an integral partner with the local Amerindian community to build economic opportunities, provide professional development, preserve traditions, and improve a sustainable tourism infrastructure in Guyana’s pristine interior
