Tour Itinerary:

Day 1: Puerto Ordaz/Ciudad Guayana - Boca de Uracoa - Orinoco Delta. The Orinoco Delta, located in northeastern Venezuela, is a vast, intricate labyrinth of waterways weaving through a simmering jungle to carry the waters of the Orinoco to the Atlantic Ocean. This trip provides an excellent opportunity to learn about different ecosystems in this region, visit Indian villages, explore countless channels admiring the lush vegetation and varied fauna and enjoy a walk in the swamp forest.

From Puerto Ordaz or Maturin, you will be transferred to a small river port in the Orinoco Delta. From there you will be transferred to the lodge by boat. During this trip (1 - 1.5 hrs), you will have an opportunity to get a glimpse of the flora and fauna in the Delta.

Once you arrive at the lodge, check into your "palafito" style cabin and rest a little. At night you lay on the bed with the sounds of the jungle outside and the twinkling lights of the fireflies in the trees. During the day you can spot all sorts of wildlife around the camp. After lunch you will take your first excursion in the surroundings. Overnight the lodge. Includes: (L, D).

Day 2: Orinoco Delta. After breakfast take a boat ride through the branches of the river, bordered by dense tropical rainforest. See monkeys, a variety of birds like toucans and parrots and other animals such as the fresh water dolphins. On a small river branch get off the boat, step into swampy ground and walk into the delta forest! Get an insight of the typical vegetation (e.g. the Moriche palm-tree, the Indians "tree of life" and its multiple uses).

Taste the heart of the Manaca palm-tree, which only grows in the delta. Visit one of the Warao Tribe families which live in their huts built at the sides of the rivers. At night there is a chance to take an optional excursion with a small paddle canoe, to flash a light at the eyes of alligators resting at the river sides and watch some python snakes sleeping rolled up on the trees. Overnight at the lodge. Includes: (B, L, D).

Note: The night excursion is not included in the price quote.
