The Programme includes 2 hotel nights in Medellín, 7 nights in our floating cabins and 6 full days fishing.

Our fishing weeks are Saturday to Saturday.  Guests arrive at Medellín international airport on a Friday where they will be met and transported to a hotel.  Next morning you will be transferred to the domestic airport and a charter flight will take you to La Primavera in the department of Vichada.  After lunch in Primavera, guests will drive in air-conditioned 4×4 trucks to our camp on the Tomo River.

Sunday to Friday inclusive are spent fishing different areas of our vast exclusive reaches of the Tomo River.

The return to Medellín on the last Saturday follows the same pattern as the arrival.  And on arrival at the domestic airport you will be taken to your hotel to speed the last night included in the package.


The water level of the Orinoco tributaries are vastly influenced by Colombia’s rain patterns.  For this reason our operation is open from the beginning of January to the end of March each year.
