Ever since I was a child, I have dreamed of visiting all the major waterfalls of the world. Of the so-called crown jewel waterfalls (Iguazu, Victoria, Angel, and Niagara), Angel Falls is by far the most difficult to reach. Also, for years Venezuela was unsafe as a travel destination, and I have been waiting and hoping for my chance to come! Thanks to Osprey Expeditions, I got my dream fulfilled. Venezuela is returning to more stable conditions, and with an experienced guide it is safe to travel there at last! Osprey has skilled, helpful and very knowledgeable guides with whom it was a joy to travel! And not only did I see Salto Angel, but so much more! Venezuela is stunning and beautiful and I wouldn’t be surprised if, someday, I will find myself back here again, with Osprey, for further exploration!

Osprey Expeditions is definitely the company to use when visiting Venezuela. Venezuela is an incredible country, with unmatched landscapes, endless adventure, kind and generous people, and a culture that is ready to be shared with the world. A country that is so proud of its beauty and traditions, it truly is contagious. 
I made lifelong friends, and some who became extended family during an unforgettable trip. The kind of connections you make with the locals is something rare to find anywhere else.

 Venezuela must be visited to demystify the image the country has outside of its borders. It is a land of wonders and incredible people, with fascinating, yet controversial, history and politics, which — ultimately — become more things to be discovered and talked about with the local people to understand the truth of life and how things really work in the country. The country and its people love to have a good time and know to travel within its borders, which makes for high quality traveler’s experiences.
 Osprey Expeditions, led by the tireless and charismatic Ben Rodriguez, will take care of all logistics and needs you have during this trip of a lifetime, providing authentic experiences that go beyond the surface, so we can leave feeling like we really became a part of the places, even if for a short stay. Ben helped me during two expeditions in the country, to Angel Falls and the trek to Mount Roraima, both incredible experiences. He also helped me plan trips inside the country around Caracas, Isla Margarita, and Los Roques, all between May and June of 2022. 

I cannot wait to go back to Venezuela. It was a dream to visit the country for a long time, and I had very high expectations. All of them got surpassed and the country definitely has my heart.

Thanks, Ben, Osprey Expeditions and all the team members during my time in the country for making my trip an unforgettable one.

Osprey expeditions is absolutely reliable! We had an amazing time in Canaima and the whole tour was arranged in a detailed way by Ben who really did his best to make us explore one of the worlds most beautiful places. The only thing you need to know is that when you do this tour, don’t forget to bring a lot of snacks and water due to no shops around and the meals included sometimes being served late or far between. If you’re sleeping in a hammock plz bring with you a mosquito net because the repellant is not good enough. Barely sleeping for a couple of hours every night do affect the trip negatively, so it would be nice if Osprey invested in a few mosquito nets for a even better experience. Enjoy😉

Ben and Osprey Expeditions has given us an amazing experience travelling through Venezuela. We did the Mount Roraima trek as well as a city tour of Caracas, and I can thoroughly recommend it to any adventurous soul! The owner, Ben, helped us with information and arrangements through every step of the journey and we felt completely safe at all times. The country has improved a lot, and should be on anyone's bucket list! We already know that we'll be back for more adventures with Osprey.

I just returned home from Venezuela and to say our trip was spectacular is an understatement. Venezuela is a fantastic country, offering so much to visitors. The fantastic nature, the unique culture, friendliness of local people, tasty food and so much more. I could stay longer easily. The whole trip was amazing, but that wouldn't be possible without Ben from Osprey Expeditions, who made sure everything was planned perfectly. All the timings, transfers, flights, everything was arranged so that our trip was as smooth as can be. It was a bit of a surprise because you can hear so many different things about Venezuela, but our experience was just perfect. All thanks go to Mr Ben for taking such good care of us. My favorite places visited on this tour were actually all. But I did love, love Caracas city tour. It was such a surprise and so informative. Who would have thought that Caracas is actually such a lovely city. With a very pleasant climate, lots of historical places to visit, fantastic restaurants, great bars, wonderful streets to stroll on. Of course visiting Angel falls was also a highlight and it is an ultimate travel destination. I felt so great standing under it. Then there was the magical Orinoco with an unbeatable atmosphere far away from the proper civilization. Also loved overlanding and I highly recommend it. Passing villages, stopping multiple times, greeting people. It gives you a glimpse into Venezuelan daily life. For sure loved Mochima national park too and the beautiful, relaxed Margarita island. An amazing tour and time passed way too fast! Thank you Ben for taking such great care of us. This tour wouldn't be possible without you. See you soon again!
