The vast Colombian Savannah encompasses 230,000 square kilometers; it is undoubtedly one of the biggest and least known territories in the country. It holds several similarities to the African Savannah’s Grasslands, but with a lot more variances in flora and fauna, along with a series of ecosystems in delicate balance.
Palm trees, Esteros, Swamps, Gallery jungles, Woodlands and Caños intertwine and form some of the most unique landscapes in the whole world. The isolated mountain La Macarena is also home to one of nature’s wonders: a multicolored, absolutely gorgeous river, known as Caño Cristales.
The Llanos are by far the most suitable sites for fauna observation; their unique characteristics stand out from the rest of the country. Low population levels and minimal urban development are the perfect allies to saving the ecosystems from harmful human activities; hence its fauna remains almost completely undisturbed.
A good set of binoculars and a photo camera are the perfect tools to immerse in the South American fauna, where pumas, foxes, deer, ant-bears, capybaras, alligators, otters and of course thousands of birds become the main characters in an out this world Safari picture.
