MeatEater Season 7: Steve Returns to Guyana for the Trip of a Lifetime

Steve returns to the South American jungles of Guyana for the river trip of a lifetime. Here, he is guided by his friend Rovin Alvin on an extended journey up the Rewa River. Along the way they fish and hunt just like the locals who live here year-round, surviving and thriving off of what the Amazonian rainforest has to offer. Each new camp along the river brings the group further from civilization and closer to what Steve is looking for – the chance to experience a place that’s remained largely untouched by the influences of the modern world.
