The wildlife of the
delta is extremely rich and varied.
Jaguar, puma, ocelot, red howler and
capuchin monkeys, capybara, agouti,
giant otter, manatee and fresh water
dolphins are just a handful of the
countless species of mammal that can be
observed in their natural habitats.
Among the extensive bird population are
hoatzin, macaws, parrots, toucans,
caciques, kingfishers, cormorants,
egrets, falcons, hawks, harpy-eagles,
weaverbirds and hummingbirds. There is
also an untold number of amphibians,
reptiles and fish species, including
anaconda, boas, vipers, fer-de-lance,
coral snakes, iguanas, caimans, turtles,
piranhas, stingrays and catfishes.
You have 90% chance to see what is
marked in red.
We will venture deep into the delta
jungle and through small rivers. Where
the Warao Indians settled hundreds of
years ago to escape and hide from the
cannibal Carib Indians, who made regular
trips from the Caribbean Islands to hunt
the Warao, for food. As we advance
deeper into this land of alluring
beauty, you will become aware of the
transformation in flora, from strictly
giant mangrove trees to a spectacular
variety of trees and palms.
