Discover Les Nouragues Guiana

The Les Nouragues Nature Reserve, which takes its name from a now extinct ethnic group, spans some 386 sq mi and is considered the largest of all French reserves. Inside the reserve you'll find a site known as 'la station de Nouragues' where international scientific research is carried out. The tropical rainforest itself lies on either side of the Balanfois mountains and is home to many different species of birds, such as the macaw and the toucan, as well as wild cats such as the jaguar.
