The Kogi tribe has been around this part of Colombia long before the Spanish conquest!
Kogi means jaguar.. and if you are lucky you can spot one of those as well here in the Tayrona National Park!
The Tayrona rainforest is teeming with life. It´s habitat for jaguars, monkeys, caimans, condors and many other species. This iguana I found on a rock sunbathing and checking out the beach-activity
The most impressive encounter though during the day-long walk in the national park was with the native Kogi tribe that live in the forest since before birth of Christ!
Colombia has it all, come and check out for yourself
Did a stop over at Manicoré when travelling the Amazon by boat between Porto Velho and Belém.
It´s a small settlers community at the Rio Madeira a couple of days
river journey from Manaus.
Me and my friends heard about a jaguar
that recently had been shot and decided to visit the family that had taken care of the kitten..
This beauty will grow to become the largest feline in this part of the world.
