Orinocco delta

It was an unforgettable experience to share some time with the Warao. We played, laughed, talked and shared ideas. You realize that excessive modernization and urbanization has made one lose values and morals. There are trips that make you wake up and want to change....

Orinocco delta

We had a very impressive trip to Orinocco Delta. Tours leave Ciudad Bolivar or Tucupita and you need to hire a local guide who can show you the various points of interest in the area

The adventure turned into dream

From Maiquetia (Caracas) you have to go to Maturin, the door to the Orinoco Delta. In Maturin the river port of San José de Buja one of the entrances to the forest and Delta. In Maturin and through type boats with outboard motor canoe and after a few hours of sailing we reach the camps. I was in the Orinoco Eco Camp, although there are several extended to throughout the Delta, all are in the same style. The camps are rustic, consisting of a common room with palm roof and various independent shacks that make as a bedroom, in them there hung a hammock with mosquito net to sleep. No electricity, no phone coverage and of course no internet, so you have to forget everything and be prepared to live an adventure, exciting adventure yet peaceful and relaxing since all are made with boat trips on the river and start from the same camp. There are different outputs, one of the most attractive is the output of the night in search of crocodiles, they are dazzled by the lights mounted on the menhaden, the native guides catch them with your hands (Orinoco crocodile is rather small size ), once the photo is returned to the river. This excursion has an added value, you can see the clear night sky without light pollution, moon and sky spectacular strikeout of glittering stars. The boats stop their engines for a certain time, the silence is total, you only hear the sound of water and the chirping of crickets, a unique feeling. The Orinoco Delta is formed by a maze of canals. One of the attractions of the Delta are the stilts, lake constructions of indigenous Warao of the Orinoco ethnicity, living in floating houses. A simple life around the river, living from fishing, hunting and handicrafts they make. They live in perfect community. Warao Indians do not pay taxes and enjoy a number of privileges since they own the Delta. The fauna is very rich, a variety of monkeys, birds of all species, toucans, parrots, etc.. Most notable is the vegetation, forests, mangroves so thick that impede, flowers, orchids, some very exotic and curious. A berry long as carob and pulling one end opens a spectacular flower. Watch the sunset from the river, the sunset in the jungle of the Orinoco is so beautiful it's a fantasy, a dream.' http://www.rodamons.net'

La aventura convertida en sueño

Partiendo de Maiquetía (Caracas) hay que trasladarse a Maturín, la puerta al Delta del Orinoco. De Maturín al puerto fluvial de San José de Buja uno de los accesos a la selva y al Delta.
En Maturín y por medio de lanchas tipo curiara con motor fuera borda y tras unas horas de navegación se llega a los campamentos. Estuve en el Orinoco Eco Camp, aunque hay varios extendidos a lo largo y ancho del Delta, todos son por el mismo estilo.

Los campamentos son rústicos, compuestos por un comedor común con tejado de palma y diferentes chocitas independientes que hacen a las veces de dormitorio, en ellas hay colgada una hamaca con mosquitera para dormir . No hay luz, el teléfono no tiene cobertura y por supuesto no hay internet, así que hay que olvidarse de todo y disponerse a vivir una aventura, aventura apasionante y a la vez plácida y relajante puesto que todas las excursiones se hacen con embarcación por el rio y parten del mismo campamento.

Hay distintas salidas, una de las más atractivas es la salida de la noche en busca de cocodrilos, éstos son deslumbrados por los focos instalados en la lacha, los guías nativos los cogen con las manos (el cocodrilo del Orinoco es más bien de reducido tamaño), una vez realizada la fotografía son devueltos al rio. Esta excusión tiene un valor añadido, te permite contemplar el nítido cielo de noche, sin contaminación lumínica, una luna espectacular y el cielo tachado de rutilantes estrellas.
Las lanchas paran sus motores durante un determinado tiempo, el silencio es total, solo se oye el rumor del agua y el canto de los grillos, una sensación única.

El Delta del Orinoco está formado por un laberinto de canales. Uno de los atractivos del Delta son los palafitos, construcciones lacustres de los indígenas Warao, la etnia del Orinoco, viven en sus casas flotantes. Una vida sencilla en torno al rio, viven de la pesca, de la caza y de las artesanías que elaboran. Viven en perfecta comunidad. Los indígenas Warao no pagan impuestos y gozan de una serie de privilegios toda vez son los dueños del Delta.

La fauna es muy rica, gran variedad de monos, aves de todas la especies, tucanes, loros, etc. Lo más destacable es la vegetación, bosques, manglares tan tupidos que impiden el paso, flores, orquídeas, algunas de muy exóticas y curiosas. Una baya alargada como una algarroba y tirando de un extremo se abre una espectacular flor.
Ver el atardecer desde el rio, la puesta de sol en la selva del Orinoco es tan bella que es una fantasía, un sueño.' http://www.rodamons.net'

The experience Orinoco is part of a period of life to which I have devoted several months of my life, through the wildest places in Venezuela where it is still possible to meet indigenous people completely removed from our way of life. From Caño Manamo you embark on the various channels of the delta. We sleep on piles and eat yucca. The sounds of the night and talk in front of the fire. This and more offers this piece of land.

L'esperienza Orinoco fa parte di un periodo di vita a cui ho dedicato diversi mesi della mia vita, attraverso i posti più selvaggi del Venezuela dove è ancora possibile incontrare popolazioni indigene locali completamente lontane dal nostro modo di vivere.
Da Caño Manamo ci si imbarca sui vari canali del delta. Dormiamo su palafitte e mangiamo yucca. I rumori della notte e le chiacchiere davanti il fuoco. Questa e tanto altro offre questa parte di terra.

Orinocco delta

A 12 hour drive from Caracas, crossing small towns anonymous and unmarked ... Cities are indigenous Warao. Fishing village by nature and necessity. Without technology, but his heart receives visitors. With heat and mosquitoes live the intense darkness in these branches of the great Orinoco River delta.
