In the heart of Venezuela, are the big Plains, one of the largest natural wildlife South America. This region abounds in history, culture and an unforgettable folk music. Its climate, vegetation and rivers make this area an attractive heaven for wildlife from the surrounding areas. Life in the Venezuelan savannas constantly change dramatically in the cycle of drought and rainy, so the rivers during floods seemingly endless, turn to dust during the dry season. The reserves, with areas of hundreds of hectares of pastures, forests, savannah and rivers, provide shelter to a wide variety of animal species. The Venezuelan Plains are a unique blend of the American West and Safaris in the African Savannah. There, people still hunt and gather, preserve traditional customs. And the “llaneros”, dusty cowboys, try to tame their so wild and uncontrollable land. The Autana Tepuy the sacred mountain of the Piaroa Community located in the Amazons region rise from the jungles, together with metamorphic granite formations. The travelers will enjoy the expedition boarding a canoe along the Sipapo River until the Autana River, passing floodable forests, sandy beaches, a few rapids and weird rock formations. They will also have the chance to meet Piaroa and Wahibo Indians at the camp of Ceeguera, which offers a spectacular view of the 1.300 m high Autana tepuy. In the Wahari mountain, where you can enjoy a spectacular 360 degree view of all the surroundings (jungles, rivers and mountain formations.) Finally the adventure will end in the Orinoco Delta, where wildlife still abounds in the banks of the mighty Orinoco River…
