We took a complete day to reach this park and another to get back to civilisation. I think I must be missing something reading other people's reviews as I didn't think it was worth all the travelling to get to. I would have preferred spending additional days at Hato el Cedra or Canaima. Some scenery was very nice and the... More

With low water in the river up to Angel Falls we were forced to walk across land to negotiate a set of rapids. The landscape was unexpected given that most of the area is rainforest and plateaus. This looked more like an African savanna.

This place is really special and one of the most special places I have seen in the world. The energy is mysterious and local people told me it is calling people from all around the world to come here. As you approach the area you can feel a change of atmosphere. The table mountains look like ancient landing platforms for... More

We spent a little over a week in the Gran Sabama, a wilderness area in Venezuela. The landscapes are stunning, and all of the locals are really really friendly and thrilled that tourists are still coming to visit. There are a number of nice waterfalls to see (not as big as Angel Falls, but well worth seeing anyway). We traveled... More

5 days with a professional guide was just right. Went to really lovely places. A very special Venezuelan experience though can be rough occasionally as infrastructure for tourists are really basic but that is part of the beauty and the secret of keeping crowds away. One advice: always use insect repellent and keep it at hand as mosquitos ( puri... More
