KAIETEUR – The Wonder Of!



Kaieteur Falls, a cataract on the Potaro River in the interior of Guyana, South America, at 741 feet is the second highest in the world, behind Angel Falls in Brazil. Kaieteur is four times higher than Niagara Falls in Ontario and twice that of Victoria Falls on the border of Zambia and Zimbabwe in Africa. A series of steep cascades extend Kaieteur Falls to 822 feet.

By volume of water flowing over it, Kaieteur is the world’s largest single-drop water fall.

Video was taken in January 2019 on a first-time, long overdue visit to one of the few remaining non-commercialized natural wonders. Access is mainly by aircraft.

  1. Excellent I trekked there one year, so many years ago! The journey started by sea plane and continued partly by canoe (except when we came to a couple of smaller falls and our guides, who were fleet-footed, carried the canoes on their shoulders) Most of the journey was then done by foot up to the Falls. What a magnificent view.
    This is an interesting page and I hope to pursue its various entries once the weather outside makes it intolerable to work in the garden!
    Thank you for sharing.
