Guyana is officially called the Co-operative Republic of Guyana. It is a sovereign state which lies on the northern coast of the continent of South America. Guyana is mainly a part of the Anglophone Caribbean, and is one of the few Caribbean countries that does not form an island.
The country has been divided into five natural regions;
•Low coastal plain: A narrow and fertile marshy plain along the Atlantic coast
•Hilly sand and clay region: A white sand belt more inland which contains most of Guyana's mineral deposits
•Forested Highland Region: the dense rain forests in the southern part of the country
•Desert Savannah:the desert savannah in the southern west
•Interior Savannah:the smallest interior lowlands which mostly consist of mountains that gradually rise to the Brazilian border.
The highest mountains of Guyana are the Mount Ayanganna at 2,042 metres, the Monte Caburaí at 1,465 metres and the Mount Roraima at 2,810 metreswhich supposedly is the highest mountain in Guyana. It is a part of the Pakaraima mountain range. The longest rivers of Guyana are the Essequibo, the Courantyne River, the Berbice, and the Demerara. There are several large islands at the mouth of the Essequibo, including Shell Beach which lies along the north-west coast.
