Join us for the unforgettable experience of searching for South America's most magnificent creatures, such as the Orinoco crocodile, the anaconda, or the pink river dolphin! We'll take the highest and longest cable car in the world and we'll take an excursion to San Isidro Trail to see one of the most beautiful birds in the World: the Andean cock-of-the Rock. Next day we'll take a boat trip along the Apure River in search of the amazing wildlife of the Llanos region, including the Red-bellied Piranha. That night we'll stay at a “Llaneros” home. Next day, before dawn, we'll take an excursion to see the Giant Anteater and some more fabulous birds. Then we'll pass the night at the famous Hato El Cedral. With a little luck we'll be able to see the elusive jaguar. Next day more bird watching and off we go to the Amazon. Enjoy the amazon rainforest and don't forget to plunge into the Orinoco River before three more days of adventure in the Canaima Nationl Park. There we'll enjoy the auyantepuy (2,400 meters), from which Angel Falls, the highest waterfall in the world, originates with a drop of 979 meters.
