   Birding Venezuela

The Andean Páramo is a high altitude, treeless plain located within the tropics between 8,000 and 16,000 feet. Due to the altitude and poor oxygen, the avian life is very special. The Venezuelan Andean towns are beautiful places to enjoy of friendly people, great food and nice small lodges in the classic mountain settings of the Andes.

Living the contrast, we will visit the Llanos in the southern Venezuelan Savannah, and stay at Hato Cedral a 106,000-acre wildlife sanctuary, where you will experience one of the continents greatest wildlife spectacles. In this place you will be able to enjoy an unforgettable wildlife spectacle. The experience is like going on a Safari in Africa, but enjoying the animals typical from the American Llanos, among them the Orinoco Alligator, the giant anacondas (biggest serpent specie in the world), osos palmeros, owls, deers, monkeys, jaguars, pumas, capibaras (the world?s largest rodent), opossums, tapirs, armadillos, otters and ocelots. Rivers are inhabited by fresh-water porpoises, alligators and by the largest American crocodile, the Orinoco caiman and toninas or pink dolphin. Bird species such as macaws, egrets, herons, storks and fish eagles, white, scarlet and glossy ibis, osprey, parrots, hawks, black vultures and hummingbirds are abundant. More than 50 mammal and 300 bird species, a spectacle worth to see!
