Mabaruma Sojourn – video

Mabaruma Sojourn – video

This is a short documentary by Annette Arjoon with music by Dave Martins about Mabaruma and the wider North West area of Region 1, Guyana, South America.

Mabrauma is a breathtaking location; surrounded by rivers, creeks and rainforest. However, the true beauty of the region is the people. The population is predominately Amerindian, from three tribes Warrau, Carib and Arawak, whos origins can be traced back over 10,000 years. These are very special people, living an amazing way of life. To experience this is a real privilege.

From Mabaruma, you can take a short boat ride to Shell Beach to see the giant leatherback sea turtles (www.gmtcs.org.gy). This has to be experienced to be believed.

    The beauty of nature as it unfolds. Mabaruma in the NWD of Region 1 is worth exploring. There is so much more for the eyes to feast. The Coco estates are a pride of the region. The people of Mabaruma must be complimented for keeping this reserve as it is. Avocado and pineapples are the delicacies of this region not to forget the variety of wild life that exists in the Virgin forests! Guyana is a great place indeed! There must be more expeditions to this and other regions that the people of the Coastal areas can learn and appreciate the hinterlands more and more. It is said that 90% of the population live on the Coastal regions of Guyana and that 90% of the country remains unexplored!
    Guyana’s vast expanse of land mass of 83,000 sq miles is begging for exploration, not only for Minerals but for human existence, population expansion and migration from the coastal belt. Some form of Voluntary National Service can be initiated by the powers that be. Who else can make this adventure happen in the 21st Century? Good Luck Folks.
