Venezuela is famous for its mighty river: the Orinoco, which is the rumoured route to El Dorado—the legendary city of gold. The Orinoco’s future is uncertain, but for now it still bonds some of Latin America’s most spectacular natural wonders—the real treasures of El Dorado.
The longest chain of mountains in the world is the Andes, which run the length of western South America. It is a world of extremes with volcanoes, jungles, and desert plains. How has life managed to survive in this high altitude?
The Amazon is the largest rainforest in the world, home to the Amazon River, which carves the forest into a mosaic of jungle islands, and to a third of all species on the planet. It is the richest yet most fragile ecosystem on Earth.
In the centre of South America is the Pantanal, home to the world’s largest wetland and some of the greatest gatherings of animals on the planet. This is a natural abundance, a wild frontier that humans have never tamed.
In the southernmost part of South America lies Patagonia, a place of vast ice fields and snow-capped mountains, of windswept deserts and violent oceans. Follow a year in Patagonia and see animals survive in unlikely places.
