Itinerary

Day 1.Maturin -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.

Day 2. Orinoco Delta

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.
