Los Llanos

One hour flight from Caracas, the Llanos (Savannah) occupying the entire central part of Venezuela, roughly a third of the national territory, they extend southwestwards well into Colombia taking-up vast areas in both countries. The Llanos are sparely populated, and it inhabitants, the Llaneros, are tough and resistant people used to the hard-work, but at same time they are very frendly hosts. The Llanos are Venezuela’s greatest repository of wildlife, especially birds, who live here permanently or gather seasonally tobreed and feed, inclusive from remote places as Alaska & Canada. About 350 bird species and 50 mammals species have been recorded in the region, with particularly mean of birds as Scarlet-Ibis and Hoatzin, and aquatic mammals as Toninas (Freshwater Dolphins) and Manatí (Manatee), this last extremely endangered specie, Capybaras and Crocodiles are particularly common. Into the Llanos region we find large and old Cattle-Ranches known as “Hatos”. Some of them have recently turnedto ecotourism, with built comfortable lodges. We’ll enjoy Photo-Safary, on jeep or on-boat, usually one trip in the moorning and another in the late afternoon. Hato El Frío (800 sq.kms has been recognized as a wildlife shelter since the colonial times, several national & international institutions carryon research projects.
