This unique camp borrows its name from the native Corocora, or scarlet ibis, an emblematic bird of the region with an unmistakable bright red coloration. Much like Los Llanos for the ibis, Corocora Camp is a safe haven, far from civilization, created for the discerning, eco-conscious traveller.
Through exceptional on-site experiences, we are able to fund conservation initiatives to protect endangered and threatened species such as jaguars, pumas, ocelots, and giant anteaters. We also aim to incorporate neighbouring communities to diversify local economies and empower children’s education, and further promote conservation practices in the region.
The camp comprises of four sleeping tents and a social tent. Large hammocks suspended in trees allow for ultimate relaxation, while private outdoor terraces are ideal for dining, spotting passing wildlife and enjoying the region’s burning sunsets. The camp has running water and electricity, using a combination of solar panels and generator, to provide the utmost comfort in nature.

Corocora’s onsite chef prepares all meals and snacks at the camp, emphasizing products sourced from neighbouring communities and local markets. Our chef strives to use local techniques and traditional recipes from Los Llanos and other regions of the country to showcase the very best of Colombian cuisine. Breakfasts are served at leisure, with warm local breads and pastries, fresh juices, top Colombian coffee, a variety of teas, homemade jams made from exotic fruits, farm-raised eggs, and exquisite seasonal fruits.
Lunches are light and healthy, served at the camp or on the go, depending on the activities of the day. Dinners are served on a communal table inside the Social Tent or by the bonfire, where guests can share their stories of the day. Guests also have the option of enjoying a private dinner and bonfire on their terrace. Throughout the day guests can nibble on snacks and local fruits, and every afternoon enjoy sundowners with premium wines and liquors from our bar.
