The Catatumbo Lighting and Los Llanos

The Catatumbo lightning and los Llanos

Peter Veerman visited this place in 2012 and was blown away by this amazing phenomenon. As a child, he was fascinated by lightning storms and he truly recalled the beautiful experience with nature he has had before. The phenomenon can be observed from April to late November, and the best time to visit is between August and September. The lightning occurs 140 to 160 times a year, 10 hours a day and up to 280 times per hour. It happens on Lake Maracaibo, so we will take you there to admire this powerful experience.



We will stay in a comfortable hotel in the city center and from there, we will go to the Catatumbo lightning and los Llanos. At the Catatumbo lake, we will sleep in hammocks in stilt houses on the lake. In spite of not being fully developed for mass tourism yet, the place is worth visiting and the experience will be for a lifetime . For animal lovers, we will explore the rivers on a boat to see a lot of wildlife like howling monkeys, dolphins, lizards and many bird species.


Los Llanos

Los Llanos in Venezuela is a great region to see the best wildlife in South America. We can expect to see different bird species, crocodiles, capybaras and even the amazing anaconda. We will stay on a farm with comfortable rooms, so this will be a perfect destination for nature lovers.
