Tours | Orinoco Delta Flotel

The Orinoco delta in South- East Venezuela is one of the most exciting Areas on our Planet.
Enjoy the impressions of the lively, tropical jungle, separated by hundreds of snake-like rivers and branches, which let the Orinoco Delta become an outstanding wetland experience.

Day 1:

From the comfort of our boat you have the chance to observe a wide variety of flora and fauna - water hyacinth, pink dolphins, giant river otters, anacondas, and side neck turtles. Along the riverbanks you will see Indian villages. Upon arrival at the Hotel you will be shown to your rooms. After lunch you will experience the wild, natural habitat of the virgin jungle from inside of a small wooden canoe. When you return to the camp, you will be able to relax before dinner. If you wish, you may take a swim in the river, or just sit and observe one of the fabulous delta sunsets. After a delicious dinner you will have the chance of enjoying the silence of the Orinoco River and listen to the dolphins, playing with the Hotel.

Day 2:

The morning will see you navigate the Orinoco in search of the various species that live there- among the highlights are river dolphins and spectacled caiman in the water, capuchin and red howler monkeys up in the dense foliage, hummingbirds and kingfishers in the skies above. After lunch on a beautiful spot inside the Delta, it’s back into the boats for a trip to some of the Warao villages (palafitos) that line the riverbanks in this part of the Orinoco. Your guide will explain about Warao culture, and the flow of the community's daily life – a truly fascinating experience. In the afternoon, just before returning we make a stopover to pick up our dinner. We will go out to a quiet spot in the river to do some Caribe fishing (this is the Venezuelan name for the Piraņas). Back to the Hotel and another evening, sunset trip around the lagoon we will have a special dinner and wait for the nightfall.

Day 3:

At daybreak we go along the channels of the Delta to watch and hear awake the jungle. This is the time of day when the animals are most active facilitating observation. After having breakfast we make another roundtrip to places we haven't seen before and to learn everything about the flora of the delta.
Tour may change, depending on water- levels, rainfalls and other natural forces.
