The Orinoco Delta is a vast unspoilt ecosystem of some 25,000kms. Home to some 20,000 nomadic Warao Indians, these peoples live simply by the water, travelling by dugout canoes and have had very little contact with the outside world for over 20,000 years.
The wildlife and scenery is simply spectacular and encounters with wildlife including River Dolphins, Jaguars, Pumas, Perro de Agua, Anacondas, Pythons, Howler and Cappuccino Monkeys and prolific birdlife including, Macaws, Toucans, Parrots, Storks, Kingfishers and Woodpeckers are virtually the norm.
The Orinoco Delta is probably the most exciting destination in Venezuela. This is where the Amazon spills out into the Atlantic Ocean. The flood of fresh water mixing with incoming tides has created a unique and rich eco system and is home to the remarkable Warao Indians. While the Amazonas are largely impenetrable, the myriad of waterways from which Venezuela takes its name (from the Italian city of Venice) makes it possible to navigate this beautiful area by speedboat and kayak. Owing to the seemingly infinite number of routes to be explored the opportunities for wildlife spotting are excellent.
Jakera have pioneered kayaking expeditions here and with us you have a unique opportunity to connect with this special place - making camp in the wilderness and sharing Warao dwellings. We also lead speedboat expeditions to exclusive lodges for those with less time.
