Orinoco and Amazonia Holidays

Why visit Orinoco and Amazonia

The Amazonas region of Venezuela resides in the southernmost tip of the country where it spills into Brazil and is neighboured to the west by the mighty Rio Orinoco and Colombia. It is a world dominated by water and forests and where the ‘curiara’, a local boat excavated from a tree trunk, is the only means of transport. Stay at a remote jungle lodge nestled deep in the rainforest, watch for wildlife and meet local Indian communities.

About Orinoco and Amazonia

Venezuela's rains drain into the great river basins of either the Orinoco or the Amazon and nurture a rainforest teeming with wildlife. This largely impenetrable terrain is sparsely populated by indigenous Indians of different ethnic groups including the Yanomami, Pemon, Baniva and Yekuana who occupy an enormous biosphere reserve. The reserve encompasses four national parks created in 1991 to protect native territory from mining and logging after a gold boom in the 1980's attracted hordes of miners from across the border.
