The Botanical Gardens are in walking distance from the city center. We got there by following Church street with its canal and its end turned right. There is an entrance gate, but no entrance fee and the park is open daily from 6am to 6pm....More

The Georgetown Zoological Gardens are located inside the Botanic Gardens. Turn left once you are just inside the gates and you are there. The admission fee is currently only $100 Guyana dollars -about 50 cents USD or 38 pence £ per adult- with some leeway...More

Private morning tour with guide from Wilderness Explorers. Lots of birds seen. However, there is trash everywhere and I did not go to the zoo so cannot rate that part. If you are interested in birds, worth the trip, if not I would skip it...More

Sadly the term botanical gardens seems very much a misnomer given the current state they are in. It is an OK park with trees, place for strolling with some good birding opportunities. 8t needs a lot of attention to bring it back into shape. Nice...More

It's been close to 50 years since I last visited these gardens. I wanted to see the Seven Ponds area and the memorial to the Honorable LFS Burnham. The 'kissing' bridge, fountain, and grassy areas enticed me to return to sit peacefully on a future...More

Very well kept and clean environment for a third world country. Beautiful exotic animals, some of which can only be seen in South America's rain forest. They have a lot of birds, pumas, and monkeys. Don't forget to take pictures on the love bridge :)

I don't think that that would be a good idea. The park has limited facilities and there are occasional robberies etc. within its boundaries
