Join one of the most unique experiences of Venezuela: a encounter with the Harpy Eagle.
Osprey takes you to a secret location where you can observe this fascinating raptor.
Hike through farms full of cattle, across marshes and into one of the largest rain forest of Venezuela in search of the largest raptor in the world – the Harpy Eagle. High in the trees above is a giant nest with a young Harpy laying guard to it and calling to its mother for more food! In she glides with something hanging from her claws which the youngster promptly dispatches.
Osprey Expeditions will not reveal the exact location on our web site, only our customers will have the privilege of knowing the exact location. As our mission explains we are concerned with conservation and preservation so we are very guarded with providing too much information at the outset in order that this location does not to become too popular and of course more importantly to maintain the privacy of the Harpy’s nesting place. We believe this makes this side-tour even that more special!
Our staff will take you to this “sleepy hollow” by overland transport and be your guide’s for the next one or two days depending upon your personal timing. Our guide may not speak English, in fact, we have difficulty understanding his Spanish, but he is an expert birder. He will point out more than just the Harpy; this rural area of Venezuela is simply full of birds and other wildlife. As with many of our special tours this is a stand-alone experience and few people will ever be lucky enough to see this majestic eagle in the wild, let alone on television!!!
