Highlight of my trip in Colombia
Jun 2016 • Friends
Tuparro National Park is located on the eastern border of Colombia where it meets Venezuela. It is on the Orinoco River and the Tuparro and Tomo Rivers run through the park as well. I only saw a small part of the park while I was there but it was incredible. It is extremely difficult to get to and remote. I could not get a Venezuelan visa, so I traveled down the Orinoco River from Puerto Carreno to reach the park. I stayed with my friend in the park overnight in a kind of open air treehouse. The views were so beautiful. There was so much wildlife. We saw 2 snakes, many birds, bats, and insects. The Orinoco River is stunning. The hiking is beautiful and the place is incredible. I visited in June 2015.

One of my favourite spots in South America
Jul 2016
We just came back from 6 amazing days at Parque Tuparro. The experience was quite something.
It's located in the frontier between Colombia and Venezuela. The park gets v few visitors each year due to a mix of lack of information and infrastructure.
For nature lovers the place is eye candy: hundreds of different types of birds, a few mammals (difficult to spot as you may expect), reptiles, insects, etc, etc.
This richness is explained by the confluence of 3 ecosystems: "flooded forests", "rocky forests" and Savannah. Each of them is absolutely amazing, being my favourite the flooded forests and the large and diverse rocks (called Tepuis)
There are also several indigenous communities. We're actually taken to place where there are petroglyphs engraved in the Tepuis. There's also 4000 yr old pictograms. Amazing!
Although infrastructure is relatively basic, depending on your guide you get v decent food, and a tidy place to sleep and shower. Taking about guides, ours was absolutely amazing. His name is Rosevel Rodriguez and his company is called Vichada Exotica. He's been running up and down the park for +30yrs. Only minus: he only speaks Spanish.
All in all, this was an amazing experience

Wild park in the middle of nowhere
May 2015
We arrived by plain and boat from Bogota. My friend read a lot about the local guides and local animals. We camped, we saw a cascabel, and climb the wonderful massive rocks.
