Bat Creek or Tumalau, as the area is referred to by the local Amerindians, is a black water tributary of the white waters of the Rupununi River. Its source is from a small drainage system in the northern foothills of the Kanuku Mountains. Bat Creek flows into the Rupununi River, and after winding through10 miles of low canopy forest, the creek flows into a series of lagoons. Fishing is enjoyed in these lagoons as well as the creek and camp is set on a bank overlooking the creek.

Besides excellent fishing, there is also the opportunity for great wildlife sightings including Squirrel, Howler, Capuchin and Bearded Saki monkeys. More impressive are the large Black Caiman that patrol the banks (they grow up to 18 feet), along with Giant River Otters. Birdlife is extremely diverse, and includes Jabiru Storks, Woodstorks, Boat-billed Herons, and several species of macaws and parrots.

Tour Itinerary:

Day 1: Arrive in Guyana and transfer to Georgetown. Overnight at Cara Lodge.

Day 2: 0915 transfer to Ogle Airstrip for a flight over rainforest and savannah to Rock View Lodge at Annai. Afternoon to explore the foothills of the Pakaraima Mountains or nearby Amerindian villages. Overnight Rock View Lodge. Includes: (B, L, D).

Day 3: Depart Rock View Lodge and drive to the Rupununi River as the sun's rays warm the savannah. Transfer to a boat and travel down the Rupununi River with coffee and breakfast. As animal activity is highest at dawn and dusk, keep an eye on the river banks for birds and animals. By mid morning and 30 miles later, we will arrive at the mouth of Bat Creek.

Now the fun begins as the boat travels up the shallow and narrow creek. You may have to duck under branches and vines and at times jump out the boat to help pull it over the shallow spots. We reach our camping spot in the early afternoon and after lunch start fishing the lagoons. Fish the golden hours until sunset and return to camp. Overnight in hammock camp. Typical bush camp with hammocks slung under a tarpaulin tent. A separate tent is set up as a kitchen and dining area. Bathing is in the river. Includes: (B, L, D).

Day 4: Wake at daybreak for coffee and then fish the lakes and creek whilst the sun rises. Fish the many hotspots throughout the day or escape the hottest part of the day by relaxing in a hammock. Fish again in afternoon and return to camp for local style dinner; barbecued fish caught by your own hand. Night fishing with bait for large catfish is an option if you aren't too tired from catching fish all day! Overnight in hammock camp. Includes: (B, L, D).

This is a small Arawana, weighing in at 2.5 lbs, but they can grow up to 12lbs. This is a fly fisher's dream as they are surface feeders, shy, wary and super smart. It is possible to sight cast to them, and if you don't spook them, they will leap on the bait. Once hooked, this beautiful fish puts up a tremendous fight, tail walking, head shaking and showing off its gold, green and pink colours.

Day 5: It was so good on Day 4 we do it all over again on Day 5. Overnight in hammock camp. Includes: (B, L, D).

Day 6: Early morning fishing before returning to camp for a late breakfast overlooking the creek. Break camp and travel up river to Annai, arriving in the afternoon. Transfer to Rock View Lodge. Have a well deserved cold beer in the Dakota Bar and tell them about the one that didn't get away. Overnight at Rock View Lodge. Includes: (B, L, D).

Day 7: Morning at leisure at Rock View Lodge. Afternoon flight to Georgetown. Enjoy an afternoon Georgetown city tour. Overnight at Cara Lodge. Includes: (B, L).

Day 8: Transfer to the airport for your departing flight.
