The tropical sun slaps the waters of the Orinoco River as you lazily drift in a canoe under a lush canopy of trees. Suddenly, the jungle explodes with sounds of howler monkey’s screeching scaring hundreds of colourful birds into flight. You grab for your binoculars while your travel companion focuses their camera.
At dusk the sky above is full of macaws and during the day there are toucans, pelicans, parrots, kingfishers and dozens of exotic species that you may never have seen before. The sounds of squawking and screeching and flapping wings then subside. The jungle quiets down once again beneath the steamy noontime sun.
As you drift in your canoe, you may see a bottle-nosed river dolphins jump out the water. This is why you left your home to visit Venezuela.

How Can you Help The Local Warrao?
Here are local Warao families that tend to visit the lodge whilst you are staying there.
We would suggest you save a little cash, preferably dollars to buy some goods from them so no-one will be disappointed – every little helps them and their families. You can even negotiate with bags of rice, cooking oil, olive oil and even medicines. The children here suffer from bad nutrition, headaches and sadly, diarrhoea, so any medicines you could bring would also be really appreciated.
The Warao families are quite large, often with large families of 6-10 children so even clothing for adults and children are very much appreciated.
For your comfort and peace of mind – we suggest that you bring some bottled water with you, Loperan tablets and a strong mosquito spray (non-deet if possible) to be comfortable. There are mosquitos and these are prevalent on the jungle / canopy tour and especially at dusk. Loperan is a medicine for the prevention of tummy sickness such as diarrhoea – not to worry unduly but if you are sampling “delights” from the jungle then it may help.
