English summary

Travel experiences in the tropics, Part 6

Observations of amphibians and reptiles during two seperate journeys to Venezuela are described, in 1997 for four weeks and in 2002 for two weeks. The 2002 journey was extended by another one and a half week in Curaçao. Although this last trip was meant to visit family, some observations could still be made. The 2002 journey in Venezuela was very succesfull thanks to the help of the biologist César Barrio-Amorós. He studied the reptiles and amphibians of Venezuela, and lived there for several years. In Venezuela we could see an enormous variety of landscapes. Especially the savanna-like interior, the “Gran Sabana” with the Tepuis, is spectacular.
