A small piece of France
in South America
, Guiana is the biggest French department. The population is composed of French metropolitans and Creoles, but also American Indians, Brazilians and Chinese communities. Famous for its penal colonies and gold rush, gold washing still happens here, but at the expense of certain tribes. With 96% of the territory covered in tropical forest, it is needless to say that the country contains a multitude of animal and plant species. Wildlife
lovers will be more than happy they decided to travel to Guiana.
