Dear fellow Carnivorous Plant Enthusiasts,
I am organizing an expedition to 13 of the Venezuela Tepuy Mountains with the intent of see all Heliamphora species in the wild; to learn more about these fascinating plants, their ecology and population sizes.
I have just returned from Venezuela. Whilst there, it became apparent to me, that to visit this fascinating part of our world, all it would require is planning, preparation and teamwork.
The expedition will include Roraima, Kukenan, Yurani, Ilu, Tramen, Ptari, Aparaman, Akopan, Chimanta, Aprada, Auyan, Neblina and Huachamaracare.
If you would like to join this expedition and experience the Heliamphora and their unearthly wind carved habitats, please email me.
In addition to Heliamphora, Brochinia, Utricularia and Drosera, the tepuyes offer a diversity of flora and fauna including hundreds of species of orchids. The surrounding region ‘La Gran Sabana’ offers perhaps the most incredible landscape on the planet, including the largest drop waterfall in the world. It will be an experience of a lifetime.
Transportation will be by helicopter from Santa Elena on the Brazilian boarder. Initial departure date; September.
All costs will be split equally. The expedition will consists of 4 phases, varying in duration and cost.
No previous mountaineering experience required just a desire and determination to experience this extraordinary part of the world.
