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.
