Orinoco Delta

Orinoco Delta

One of the most comprehensive experiences available in Venezuela is to revel in the exceptional surroundings of the Orinoco Delta swamps, encompassed by lush, dense forests that are home to a diverse array of fascinating wildlife, including Red Howler Monkeys, Toucans, Hoatzins, Caimans, Giant River Otters, snakes, and many more. The Waraos communities will offer you an insight into their way of life in the middle of nowhere, making this an unparalleled adventure.


Join us on a once-in-a-lifetime adventure! We’ll journey to Uracoa pier and take a boat into the jungle to our Orinoco Queen Lodge . As we explore the lush rainforest, you’ll see a stunning array of plants and animals, from pink dolphins to anacondas. We’ll visit Warao Indigenous villages, see their amazing raised dwellings over the river, and taste some edible plants and juicy grubs with our Warao guide. After a delicious dinner, we’ll relax under the stars. Don’t miss out on this unforgettable experience!
