Corocora Camp transports you to the land of Colombia’s cowboys, an undisturbed region filled by savannah, flooded grasslands and wild rivers.
As well as the traditional cowboy heritage, it’s the remoteness and rich wildlife of Los Llanos that draws nature-lovers to this corner of Colombia. Set on its own private reserve, Corocora Camp is the perfect base from which to experience this virtually untouched wilderness. Choose from one of four sleeping tents where you’ll find plush mattresses, en-suite bathrooms and private terraces.
Explore the reserve with a naturalist guide for a chance to encounter more than 200 different species of birds as well as giant anteaters, capybaras, jaguars, howler monkeys and mighty anacondas. Immerse yourself in the region’s rich riding culture on excursions alongside local llaneros who’ll teach you how to herd cattle using traditional songs and chants. Finish off with a parrando llanero – a feast around the bonfire complemented by live music.
