|Manaka (Eutape) is the name of the palm from which
the Guarao Indians make their homes. This fiber is used as construction material for
roofs. The word Manaka is traditionally associated with joy, security, warmth and even
food, since from its center the Guarao extract heart of palm. This plant grows in swamps,
areas with large precipitation, on the shores of savannas, lagoons, or rivers like the
Orinoco, where Manaka Lodge is located, in the midst of very diverse plant and animal
life. Navigable rivers, exuberant vegetation, fishing, birdwatching, and guided tours into
the rain forest, savannahs, and tepuys (mountains that rise precipitously into the sky)
make Manaka Lodge a unique place for fishing.
Manaka is located in the Amazonia Jungle of South America 420 miles from Caracas, capital
of Venezuela, at the confluence of the Ventuari River into the mighty Orinoco, the
confluence of these big rivers offers spectacular delta with an ecosystem of its own.
In the middle of this dense jungle and beautiful waters is Manaka. A five-star fishing
camp where its personnel, the general manager, guides, maintenance crew, house-keeping
