Los Llanos is sparsely populated, mostly by farmers and cowboys (vaqueros) living off the region's main activity, extensive cattle ranching.

Discover an amazing wildlife including anacondas, the ubiquitous capybaras and caimans, hundreds of bird species, and the much rarer jaguars and anteaters. This is also the last stronghold of the Orinoco Crocodile. Go on a safari from at one of the ranches in the region, and see the stunning flat landscapes. Dance to joropo - the traditional Llanos music, and enjoy Venezuela's best beef.

Los Llanos is the American continent's top places to see a wide range of flora and fauna including Capybaras, Anacondas, Caiman and giant ant-eaters.

From July to November, Los Llanos enters the rainy season and with water covering a large section of the land - the animals become more elusive and the insects thrive! From mid-November, the water begins to recede meaning the animals gather in the wetter parts and are more easily seen. Between December and July are probably the best months to visit Los Llanos although at any time of year, you are unlikely to leave disappointed! An amazing part of Venezuela with rolling plains and such a concentration of wildlife rarely found anywhere in the world.

Explore the rivers and creeks filled with caiman, turtles, pink river dolphins, piranhas and crocodiles or ride through flocks of Igrits on the savanah - this is quite the wildlife enthusiast's dream! A typical tour with all included is around $295 for 4 days. These are varied and interesting trips normally with a base in one of the camps about an hour from Mantecal. Tours usually include safaris by horse, by boat, by jeep and by foot.
