The Orinoco River stretches 1,300 miles across Venezuela. It has hundreds of tributaries and small waterways that extend from its mouth and spread throughout a swamp forest. Many of these pieces are important rivers in Venezuela that act as connections between areas around the country. Dredging in the river allows ocean ships to sail as far as Cuidad Bolivar, and steamers can navigate cargo as far as Puerto Ayacucho. Travelers exploring the river will have the opportunity to see the Amazon River dolphin and the Orinoco crocodile, as well as hundreds of fish species including black spot piranha and cardinal tetra.
