The Hotis tribe is one of the most primitive of the Indian tribes. The last nomad tribe from
Venezuela! They live in the area from San Juan de Manapiare, one hour by
plane from Puerto Ayacucho!
Flight from Puerto Ayacucho to San Juan de Manapiare in a 5 or 7 seat Cessna. The rest of this day will be spent in San Juan to relax and discuss and organize the adventure. Overnight stay in hammocks.
After breakfast you spend the whole day in a small boat on the river Manapiare, Caño Parucito. You have plenty of opportunities to observe birds and probably Nutrias. Lunch is on the way and overnight stay is in hammocks on the shore.
After breakfast you will spend the morning on the boat until midday. After lunch you start the jungle walk to find the Hoti Indians. Overnight stay with the Indians.
The whole day you get introduced to the habits and customs of the tribe. One day living with the Indians and sharing their traditions!!
After breakfast is time to return to the boat and way back to the shore for the camp.
Returning to San Juan de Manapiare. You will have the chance to fish for piranhas on the way back!. Overnight stay in San Juan.
After breakfast flight back to Puerto Ayacucho. End of our service!
The Hotis are very primitive and the fact that they are nomads means we
we sometimes have to search for them. This can delay the trip and sometimes
take one day longer.
