Day 1: The jeep Expedition begins at the base in Merida around 8:00 am. From Merida our expedition tour brings us up the valley and over the mountains to Barinas, a city on the edge of Los Llanos. The scenery of Los Andes en route is not to be missed. There are optional stops to show you some highlights along the way - the stone church of Juan Felix Sanchez at San Rafael, and a chance to relax at Laguna Mucubaji in the Sierra Nevada National Park.
Through thick rain forest the altitude declines but the temperature rises until we reach Barinas where the flatlands begin. It´s a slow drive over rough terrain towards a village called Mantecal. During this part of the trip you´ll have your first glimpse of the endless savannas and varieties of bird life.
Todays journey ends at our camp. Here we have small huts equipped with mosquito nets and real Indian made hammocks.
