    About us

    Who are we? It's a long story! I was never a good narrator, but this probably will give you an idea how it all began...
    Franbrasil was born in the head of a 25 year old Frenchman whom after having crossed the Atlantic Ocean alone in a sailboat decided to continue his venture and discover Latin America. This entrepreneur, Sylvain Lanctin, born near Paris, France graduated from the National School of the French Merchant Navy with the title Officer 1st Class. After several years exploring different destinations it was a trip through Venezuela that made him realize he had found what he was seeking. At the age of 28, and with the help of a Brazilian friend Roberto Marco Nunes, he decided to take the plunge. Sylvain quit his job in France to create his own company in Latin America and peruse a lifelong dream to have a fascinating career in tourism. While roaming the highest peaks in the Andes Mountains (more than 5000 meters) in his 30 year old Jeep he discovered these small mountain villages lost in time. Places like Los Pueblos del Sur where the people still live a simple life of agriculture and farming meager crops or the vast low-lying marshy savannah plains of Los Llanos where alligators are more abundant than mosquitoes. Imagine standing at the edge of the only road that crosses this vastness and realizing you’re surrounded by more than 20 alligators on all sides! Imagine the region of La Gran Sabana in southern Venezuela and the spectacular tepuy, sleeping under the stars at the base of a waterfall several hundred meters high and being isolated more than 24 hours away from the nearest asphalt road. Imagine being awake with the local people in the middle of the night. Imagine Lake Maracaibo and houses built over the water where to cross the street you must swim or take a boat. Imagine the Caribbean coast and the Canary Islands where sea turtles not frightened by man and will eagerly eat from your hand.

    VENEZUELA is a paradise, where nature is still intact and magnificent. This is why I decided to explore the passion I feel for this country, its people and its environment.

    FISHING IN VENEZUELA: CAURA RIVER (JUNGLE)

    The Caura is the third largest river in Venezuela with some 725 kilometers of longitude, and it is the second tributary of the Orinoco. The basin of the Caura is protected by a 5,000,00 hectare forest reserve. It is possible to affirm that this is the most virgin forest of America because a big part of it is still primary which remains in its original form, and has never been touch. One of the major attractions of this river are the spectacular Pava Falls, where the river divides into seven torrents. The torrents divide the Caura in three zones Higher Caura (Alto Caura) Higher Erebato (Alto Erebato) and Lower Caura (Bajo Caura).During the rainy season the volume of water over the Pava surpasses that of Victoria Falls in Africa as well as the falls of Iguazú in Falls in the Brazil- Argentina border. The basin of the Caura is inhabited by the native ye’kawana, sanema and nomads. The Caura River is the most important of south Venezuela near the Sarisariñama and it flows toward the northwest sector of Bolivar state until it empties into the Orinoco River.

    The Caura is considered the world’s lung and is one of the most important rivers of the country. The zone surrounding is a forest reserve rich in jungle, flora and fauna in which one encounters approximately 400 species of birds.

    What does the Caura River Basin hold? In its 45,336 square km are virgin forests with more than 2,700 plant species, 475 bird species, 168 types of mammals, 23 kinds of reptiles, and several hundred fish species. Most of the basin is a forest preserve with several national parks and natural monuments, including the Sari Sariama sink hole, a geologic formation dating to the Precambrian period, and "tepuyes", vegetation covered mountains.

    The Caura River flows 700 km from the Brazilian border, 2,000 meters above sea level, with an annual average rainfall of four meters. The Caura contributes 3,500 cubic meters of water per second to the Orinoco River.
    The biodiversity of the endemic species of the plains is found in the exuberant vegetation of the jungle in a zone difficult to reach. Kilometers and kilometers of land, trees, and mountains surprise not only the tourist, but the specialists themselves who discover in this lonely territory a true scientific treasure
