A leading centre for the rehabilitation of injured and orphaned giant river otters, Karanambu has attained worldwide recognition for its conservation work. Wild otters are also frequently seen, and the verdant banks of the Rupununi River also provide habitat for many birds and other forest wildlife. The nearby savannah contains the strange, endangered giant anteater, commonly seen by lodge guests. The centre’s founder, Diane McTurk, was born and brought up there and is a fund of local knowledge and history, and a great host.
