RAMESH Shibsahai, 59, who operates the Mahaica River Birding Tours, in a recent interview with the Guyana Chronicle, revealed that, as the effects of the pandemic on businesses are eased, major expansion is planned for the touring company.

Shibsahai, who was born in West Coast Berbice and later settled in Biaboo, Region 5 (Mahaica-Berbice), got his start in farming from an early age after following in his father’s footsteps.

He continues to farm but also finds time to operate the River Tour company for over 15 years, and conducts bird-sighting tours along the river, fishing tours, along with boating services.

Shibsahai said there are over 150 different species of birds identified along the Mahaica River.

On regular tours, some 35 to 50 different bird species are easily noticeably.

“We get some chance to see the river otters, we get the howler monkeys, we got a few different monkeys and so on too and the main attraction here is the national bird — the Canje Pheasant,” Shibsahai said in an interview with this publisher.

Adding to his business, he hopes to build a new waterfront deck which will allow guests of the tour to enjoy meals on the waterfront before or after going on the tours.

“We want to actually put in two cabins later on too; if I develop and look at the business and see how it goes, I expand from there as well,” said Shibsahai. With further expansion, growth of tourism in the Biaboo area is expected. Contact Ramesh on (592) 621-7332.
