Venezuela – traveling with JBL and aquarists
In 2016, I got the honor to accompany a tour group to Venezuela by an invitation from JBL. Due to the good preparation and planning, we were able to travel the country very safely despite the politically difficult situation. The journey consisted of two parts. The first part took us to the estuarine delta of the Orinoco, where we spent a few days in an ecolodge and explored various biotopes there. For the second part were going by small planes (4-6 seats) to Canaima with the aim to visit the Salto Ángel (highest waterfall in the world).
In this talk, I report on this trip and give insights into the flora and fauna we traveled.
