Venezuela: Orinoco Delta

The river Orinoco is one of the world’s great river systems, though it is much less well known than its counterpart to the south, the Amazon. The waterway, in places 20km wide, splits into a labyrinth of 40 caños (channels), creating hundreds of mangrove-fringed islands in an immense delta (now a Unesco World Biosphere Reserve). Here indigenous tribes live simply on the banks of the spider’s web of dark, sluggish waterways.
