Detailed Itinerary

Show All

DAY 1 Fly to Yopal. Transfer to San Luis de Palenque. Wildlife Safari (4x4)

Take a morning flight to Yopal, the capital city of the Casanare Department in Colombia. Casanare is home to several hatos (ranches) and nature reserves that showcase the region's natural beauty and biodiversity. This region of Colombia will allow you to experience the unique ecosystems and wildlife of the eastern plains, known as the Llanos Orientales.

Upon arrival in Yopal, we will start the journey towards San Luis de Palenque, approximately 2 hours on paved roads. We will spend the next two days at Hato Matepalma and Hato Altamira; two large haciendas declared nature reserves. At these natural reserves, you will have the chance to see hundreds of capybaras, white-tailed deer, spectacled caimans, tortoises and interesting birdlife, including Orinoco geese and the great horned owl – Colombia's largest owl.

Upon arrival at the natural reserve, we will have lunch and relax for a while. Then, we will do a safari in a 4x4 vehicle to get close to an astonishing amount of wildlife; with some luck, we may see an anteater, a puma, an anaconda (especially during the dry season in February and March), armadillos and hundreds of capybaras, deers, spectacled caimans, tortoises and interesting birdlife. We will also be able to witness the spectacular sunset before continuing our expedition to see nocturnal wildlife.

uncover colombia really covers colombia

My wife and I had been interested in visiting Colombia largely because my father worked in Barranquilla in the early to mid-1960s and I had not been back since then. I found Uncover Colombia online and entered into email conversations with Nidia Penagos about designing a trip. The result was an exceptional experience...

colombia excels

Uncover Colombia is the best travel agency we have ever used, and we have traveled to many different countries and used many different agencies... The standout person was Nidia. She organized our trip to Colombia perfectly. We asked for different things to be done in our 11 days in Colombia. She included every place using aeroplanes and cars as modes of transportation.

– Marla, January 2020

great colombia private tour company

I can highly recommend Uncover Colombia. I used the company for a week-long solo trip to Colombia spanning three cities: Bogota, Medellin and Cartagena. They did a wonderful job for me, providing English-speaking guides in each of the cities and arranging transportation to various sites and internal flights from city to city...

great company

We used this company for two tours while in Bogota. They are great to work with and communication was amazing. If looking for someone to see Colombia definitely check out this company.

tour of corcora valley, salento and coffee plantation

We had a private tour with guide, Camilo, and driver also called Camilo. We were picked up from our hotel on time, and immediately camilo started to tell us interesting information on Colombia, nature etc. Our walk was amazing - we saw a condor and hummingbirds and Camilo was very knowledgeable about nature, history and politics...

tour of the coffee region and bogota

Uncover Colombia helped me and my husband organized an unforgettable trip to Colombia! The staff is very communicative, open to help and support any need/last minute requests you might have. The guides that will take you around in your tours are incredibly knowledgeable...

best travel company in colombia

For the third year in a row, we have used the very knowledgeable and friendly professionals at Uncover Colombia to plan our trip to that very beautiful country. We toured in and around Bogota our first trip and for the last 2 years we have been going to Cartagena. The hotel reservations, the transfers, and the tours are always done in a flawless manner...

– James, February 2018

exploring around colombia

Guides were excellent and spoke good English which helped as my Spanish is, shall we say, developing! The places for accommodation were also good, but ask if you would prefer smaller hotels as the company are very flexible. We had good communication with the local representative from Uncover Colombia while we were in the country, and very quick, helpful responses while planning from England.

– John, April 2018

excellent trip

My husband and I recently visited Colombia for 28 days. The whole trip was organized by Uncover Colombia and they did a great job. This was a customized trip for just the 2 of us. We visited Bogota, Salento, in the Coffee Region, Cartagena, Santa Marta, the El Dorado Reserve and Leticia in the Amazon...

– Lee C, March 2018

great trip to colombia!

We went on a grand tour of Colombia, visiting all the places my daughter (who lives there) recommended over a couple of weeks...Our trip couldn't have been any better. We were treated like royalty from start to finish - excellent hotels, guides and great places to visit. Thoroughly enjoyed every moment. What a beautiful country!

– Mary, January 2018

exceptional colombia travel agent

My wife and I wanted to visit Colombia. We travel independently or with an agent who only deals with one country. From our first contact to a final meeting after our 3 week trip they performed brilliantly...Colombia exceeded our expectations and anyone wishing to go should choose to travel with Uncover Colombia.
