Orinoco Delta, Venezuela

Rivalling the biodiversity of the Amazon and sustaining the region’s indigenous people, the great Orinoco River, from rainforest to delta, threads through Venezuela and spills out into the Atlantic through a vast, jungled delta.

Far less known - and less visited - than its big sister to the south, the Orinoco offers a once-in-a-lifetime chance to explore a disappearing ecosystem, this is exploration in its finest sense.

Expeditions start at the pretty riverside town of Ciudad Bolívar or the small town of Puerto Ordaz, but from then transport is by canoe and accommodation in a tent or traditional thatched hut.
