    Rock View Lodge

    Popular Choice mini-logo
    Lodge/Hosteria - Just outside Annai, next to the airstrip
    The rock from which the lodge gets its name is next to the owner's original house, built in the 1950s by a Brazilian, and echoing (possibly) the crown of thorns. There are extensive views over the Rupununi savannah from the top of the rock. The Dakota Bar is next to the village airstrip. The grounds also contain a neat kitchen garden, barbeque area with outside dining table, and a pretty swimming pool. Read more»
