This is a memorable
exploration by kayak, or dingy, or on foot in dry season, of the famous Nariva Swamp. Nariva is 6,254
hectares of wetlands, marshes and swamp forests teeming with more
than 200 species of birds -- Snowy Egrets,The Black-crested Antshrike,
Silvered Antbird, Green throated Mango, Flycatchers Kingfishers,
Savannah Hawks and Azure Gannilule.
The vivid colours and loud
chatter of the red bellied Macaws and Flocks of Parrots interrupt the silence
of the peaceful lily covered expanses of Nariva.
Howler and Capuchin monkeys
call from the tops of giant trees. Nariva is the habitat of a variety of small
mammals including Ant-eaters, Porcupines, the endangered Ocelot, and the Manatee.
Swamp fringe culture Hindu/
Christian/Muslim, is hospitable and a visit with them offers an interesting glimpse
of a unique, tolerant and self-sufficient lifestyle.
