The Trip-Finder, January 1998
The Route: Fly with legendary bush pilot Boris Kaminski to visit a ranch in the wildlife-rich Llanos grasslands and the remote villages of the Yekuana, Makiritare, and Hodi Indians.
When to go: October to April
Travel advisory: Villagers consider tourists who pull out a camera on the first day of the visit to be rude. Wait to take photos until the second day, when the Indians are more comfortable with you.
