Join one of the most unique experiences of Venezuela: an encounter with the Harpy Eagle. Visit a truly gorgeous unspoiled area…full of flora and fauna within driving distance of other spectacular natural places. Hike through farms full of cattle, across marshes and into canopy rain forest in search of the largest raptor in the world – the Harpy Eagle. High in the trees above is a giant nest with a young Harpy laying guard to it and calling to its mother for more food! In she glides with something hanging from her claws which the youngster promptly dispatches.
Osprey takes you to a secret location where you can observe this fascinating raptor.
Transfer to the posada. Dinner and overnight at standard posada. (D)
Rising at dawn and taking a picnic for breakfast we will drive to one of the Harpy Eagle’s nesting sites in the area on the way stopping to spot other bird species. The morning tour lasts about six hours. (B,L)
After lunch you can continue to your next destination.
Combine this exciting wildlife tour extension with the Orinoco Delta, Cueva del Guacharo, Llanos, and Catatumbo for more days of full on wildlife and amazing nature experiences. In fact it’s a great side trip to compliment many of our programs.
