The Orinoquia Region is composed of wide plains and savannahs. Among the typical fauna are the Sabanero deer, the chigüiro, the red cocora, the goitrous monkey as well as the tiger, the anaconda, the Orinoco caiman and the four-nosed viper (bothrops asper). The Orinoquia also hosts more than 300 bird species, most of them aquatic.

The flora of this region is grouped in its majority in the El Tuparro Natural Park, a Biosphere reserve. From this place all the landscapes from the Colombian oriental plains can be appreciated: savannahs, rivers, spouts of crystal water and especially the gallery forests that constitute a unique sight.
