The Llanos of the Orinoco

2008Ep922 mins

The Llanos, or plains, lie between the northern Venezuelan Andes, the Andes of Colombia towards the west and the Guyana Shield in the south. The Llanos are covered with great stretches of grasses, but forests and savannas exist along the Orinoco River providing a wide range of habitats for wildlife. The annual dry season followed by the rainy season adds to the variation in the ecosystems thus making the region one of the best wildlife areas in South America.
