Most overlanders choose South America based on good infrastructure, and safety. But we are at a loss to understand why so few overlanders visit the (Real) Amazone region and the 3 former Guyana’s in the Far North East of South America: French Guiana, Suriname and Guyana.
All 3 are dynamic countries with many cultures from ancient tribes. 90% of the 3 countries is pristine rain forest and Surinam and Guyana offer great off road driving, bush camping, wild life, history and scenery.
