Orinoco Delta – the landmass known as Delta Amacuro has formed over the course of thousands of years as the mighty river has deposited millions of tons of sediment into the ocean.
The wildlife is extremely rich and varied. Jaguar, puma and capuchin monkeys, giant otter, manatee and dolphins are just a handful of the countless species of mammal that can be observed in their natural habitats.
Among the extensive bird population are hoatzin, macaws, parrots, toucans, falcons, hawks. There are also an untold number of amphibians, reptiles and fish species, with a population of 24,000, the Warao constitute the second largest indigenous tribe in the country. Family groups reside in Palafitos (wooden houses raised on stilts, fist seen by Americo Vespucci, and therefor Venezuela got its name after Venice in Italy ) along the banks of the river, and spend most of their daily lives in canoes fishing in the nearby caños and hunting and gathering in the surrounding forests.
As skilled craftspeople, the Warao build their Palafitos and canoes from forest wood using traditional techniques, and, owing to increased contact with tourists, have also begun to carve figurines from balsa wood and to make necklaces, baskets and hammocks from the leaves and seeds of the ubiquitous Moriche palm. The Moriche palm, however, supplies more than just the basis for arts work. Known as the ‘tree of life’, the Moriche provides the Indians with fruit, juices and a sweet pulp that can be made into a type of bread. The trunk of the palm is used to cultivate a thumb-sized beetle grub, the Moriche worm, a nutritious dietary supplement. Visit the Indians and take a glimpse of their way of living and a jungle walk with experienced guides to venture into this mysterious world of the Warao Indians. Get to know your rainforest.
