The Orinoco Delta covers 25,000 square kilometres. The mighty Orinoco river disgorges its sediment into the Atlantic through a maze of forested islands and floating reed beds. This is the home of the Warao Indians - totally adapted to their riverine life, they live in stilt houses (palafitos) on the banks of the many channels (caños) that take the waters of the Orinoco out to the ocean.
