Two weeks ago I visited Canaima National Park at Venezuela and I did the excursion to Angel Falls. You ride a small boat for about 4 hours in order to get to the camp where you will spend the night in hammocks. The next morning we started walking the path that would lead us to the base of the fall.... More

Canaima is a tiny town, where jungle and pure water are the main attractions. It is just breathtaking to see the Canaima lake with its pink sand beach, the astonishing views of the tepuys and the waterfalls which you can visit and walk behind them, getting the feeling of how water can be the best tourist attraction: delicious to hear,...

Outstanding - made all the better due to the effort required to get there which keeps the crowds down. We had the falls to ourselves for the first 30mins. Magical place.

There are no any situable word able to describe how is the Kerepakupai Vena (original name of the Angel Falls). Only say beautiful, magnificent, majestic, amazing, impressive will not tell you the feeling you will have by the moment you have the first sight of this natural monument. I only can say that you will feel that you are blessed... More

It was a long trek getting here by canoe but it was very well worth it. You can’t describe with words what a wonderful sight. The waterfall goes on forever. And I was so amazed by it all.

Booked a trip to the Angel Falls with Osprey expeditions. I arrived in the jungle on a small Cessna plane. The first day we visited the Sapo Falls and walked behind them. Accommodation that night was in an indigenous village. The next day we took a 4 hour motorised canoe to the Angel Falls. When we reach there we had... More

We travelled here in 1991. In order to see the true beauty of these areas you have to travel when it is not the dry season. We were there in April 1991 and booked the plane trip into Canaima National Park. Very disappointing as we were able to sit on the dry waterfalls and there was little water coming over... More

Take the trip down the river and spend the night sleeping in a hammock. Walk through the jungle until the falls suddenly appear. An unbelievable sight/experience. Swimming in the pool at the foot of the falls, lying back and looking up at the falls cascading down into the pool is one of the most wonderful experiences of my life!

Our first glimpse of the rugged, eerie, flat-topped mountains, draped in rain-forest green with a circle of clouds around them, is awe-inspiring, considering we were up high in a plane looking down. Simply amazing.... and what an entree to start an adventure. This is definitely Sir Arthur Conan Doyle lost-world territory, shrouded in mystery and exquisite beauty. There are no... More
