Itinerary

Pale-throated Sloth, Bradypus tridactylus, Marino Ballena National Park, Costa Rica, America

Day 1. Puerto Ordaz-Canaima National Park

The Angel Falls are located deeply inside Canaima National Park. Your tour begins with a flight from Ciudad Bolívar or Puerto Ordaz to the Canaima Lagoon area, from which you can see a group of four different cascades known as Hacha, Wadaima, Ucaima and Golondrina. 
After a tasty lunch at a local indigenous village you will be taken across the lagoon and walk along the pink sand banks and up, through the jungle to the majestic Sapo Falls. From this point and on, you may swim in the lake before walking up through the jungle and behind the falls while enjoying a great scenery through a powerful water curtain. Dinner at the camp before going to sleep (beds) to the sound of crickets. Feel free to walk in the Pemon Community and get to know a bit more about their culture.

Day 2. Angel Falls

After breakfast, you will walk through the jungle before taking a motorized canoe up Carrao and Churún rivers towards the spectacular Angel Falls. As you travel along the rivers for about 4 hours, you will have the time to take in the lush scenery and the fantastic Tepuys, you will enjoy a light picnic lunch afterwards. 
At Devil’s Canyon, you can see the Angel Falls cascading 1km down from the top of Auyántepuy and running all the way to Churún river. From here this point, you will walk up through the jungle for about an hour to the Laime viewpoint and then down to the rock pools near the base of the falls. If you get lucky, you may swim in the freshwater of Angel Falls. Have a good sleep in our comfortable hammocks front of the tallest fall in the world, if you have not experienced sleeping in hammocks, your tour guide will show how to get a perfect sleep as local Pemons do.

Day 3. Angel Falls- Canaima- Puerto Ordaz

After breakfast and coffee at the camp you will travel back down the river to the first camp where you will eat lunch before taking a final flight over the jungle to Puerto Ordaz.
Depending on availability, you have the chance to get a flight over Angel Falls as optional. Ask your tour guide in Canaima National Park about that, it usually departs with minimum of 4 passengers and the best experience is always in a Cessna 206.
At your arrival to Puerto Ordaz, our representative will meet you there and take you to a hotel by the airport. No dinner included. End of service. 

Day 4.Ciudad Bolivar -Orinoco Delta

We travel by road to the Uracoa pier and then by boat to our jungle lodge. The camp is located in the middle of the dense rainforest, on one of the many tributaries of the Orinoco river. From the comfort of your boat you can observe a wide variety of flora and fauna – water hyacinths, pink dolphins, giant river otters, anacondas, tortoises and red howler monkeys, etc. Along the riverbanks you will see Warao Indigenous villages with their unique raised dwellings (palafitos), built over the river’s edge.
Once under the canopy, your Warao guide will point out edible plants which you will get a chance to taste, or if your stomach is strong enough you can try the juicy grubs that can be found living in the dead trees and vegetation! When you return to the camp, you will relax before dinner. After a delicious dinner you will have the chance of enjoying the silence of the Orinoco river from the harbor of the camp.

Is Orinoco Delta a good tour for Wildlife observation?

Yes, it is! From the very start you will see interesting species like River Dolphins, Red Howler Monkeys, Toucans, Macaws and much more. In my 20's I guided so many river tours in the Orinoco (over 150) and wildlife always made my days. I highly recommend this experience if you are enthusiastic about it. Whatever you see it is going to be free and wild, no "sanctuaries" to "exhibit animals" for tourists, not in my country! it will all be 100% natural.
I made a pdf with plenty of information including a Wildlife Field Guide that you can download from the Tour info section. Enjoy!

The morning will take you into navigation the Orinoco river in search of various species that live there- among the highlights; there are river dolphins and spectacled caiman in the water, capuchin and red howler monkeys up in the dense foliage, hummingbirds and kingfishers in the skies above. Back to the camp for lunch, you will be taken on a boat trip to some of the Warao villages and palafitos that line the riverbanks in this part of Orinoco. Your guide will explain about Warao culture, and the flow of the community’s daily life –a truly fascinating experience. Here, we will have an opportunity to meet some of their craftsmen, and inspect some of their workmanship, first-hand. In the evening, you will be offered a hearty meal and maybe even a few beers or local Rum with Coca Cola! Night tours available at extra cost, ask your tour guide.

This morning you will be taken out to a quiet spot in the river to do some Piranha fishing and after lunch we travel by river one last time to Uracoa pier and drive up to Puerto Ordaz.
