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

There really are few places in the world that compare with this in terms of diversity, beauty and magnitude. Most people come to see the tepuis and Angel Falls and it seems almost cruel that there are so many other water falls over 100 metres in height which would be much valued in other parts of the world but here...

We booked a 3 day, 2 night package with Backpacker tours, transport by Jeep. Everything was fantastic- great guide (English/Spanish/German speaking), good food, and a customized tour thanks to Eric (owner). The area is beautiful, with rolling plains, waterfalls (cold but not too cold to swim), and lovely people. I would love to go back and do the Roraima trek... More

Amazing experience of red water lagoons, beautiful river, unusual mountains all around! Its worth doing a trek to the Angel falls from Canaima which includes 5 hours long motorized canoe rides, jungle hikes, swims in private water falls!

Thousand miles square green nature, 3.000.000 years old table mountains, lost of rivers, swimming pools and water falls. If you visit Angel Fall you should visit Gran Sabana too.

This part of the National Park - like all others - is untouched. Only native people are permitted to live here and so it feels like you are stepping back in time. The air is dry and the perfect temperature. Many of the locals sleep outside. You can forever without too much effort. Very flat.
