Birds and Birding in Venezuela

Venezuela is, besides Peru and Colombia, the world’s richest country in birds

Venezuela is pure nature. It’s a combined country with complete vegetation’s level. The highest concentration is found, at a certain point, in Mérida: It goes northern from 5000mts in the Andes to the Caribbean and southern to the Amazon through elfy- and cloud forests over gallery forests, to the savannahs and swamps in los Llanos. In the east is the Orinoco Delta, tropical rainforest and the Gran Sabana with table top mountains which are called Tepuis. Los llanos is excellent for wildlife.

Through this variety of vegetation lives more than 1400 South American bird species. We have our base in the Andes in Merida where we have our lodges and almost daily we have birdwatching excursions leaving from the Andes to Los Llanos to see birds and wildlife.
We also organise frequently excursions to all destinations in Venezuela like Henri Pittier national park, east Venezuela and la Gran Sabana to see the Tepui endemics at La Escalera, Sierra de Lema and to see the Harpy Eagle at Sierra de Imataca.
Just ask our stuff !
