Gran Sabana is a truly unique place! With waterfalls, rainforest, the
1000m high savannah, the oldest mountains on earth, the mysterious flat
top mountains, also called the last white points on earth! Enjoy with
us an unforgettable tour through this wonderful lost world!
Day 1: Santa Elena - Rápidos de Kamoiran
start from Santa Elena in the morning and go for 40 minutes in our
Toyota to the Jaspe waterfall which is hidden in the jungle. It offers
with its red shiny Jaspe stones a great photo opportunity. After 40
minutes by Toyota we arrive at the long natural waterslide of Soruape.
This natural waterslide has a length of 30 meters. Furthermore we will
go to the Pacheco waterfall and our guide will explain the unique
vegetation of this area. We will find lots of insect eating plants.
Imagine: From 18 families of carnivore plants that exist worldwide do 5
species live here in the Gran Sabana. Then we continue to an ancient
holy Indian place, where the natives used to ask the gods to make their
wishes come true. From here we have an amazing panoramic view of six
flat top mountains. The last waterfall of the day is the 55m high Kama
waterfall. The overnight stay is Rápidos Kamoiran by an Indian family
in the National Park Canaima.
Day 2: Rápidos Kamoiran - Aponwao - Kavanayen
go to the Indian village Iboribo and taking a small boat for 20 minutes
in order to arrive at Chinak Meru, also known as Aponwao waterfall
which is the highest waterfall in this region. It has 107m free fall!
We will have the chance to walk down to see the enormous power of the
water from nearby. Afterwards we return to the Indian village for lunch
and we go to our camp in Kavanayen that is in the heart of the Gran
Sabana. We visit the mission where the fathers teach the Indians to
improve their agricultural techniques. In Kavanayen we have dinner and
sleep in beds.
Day 3: Kavanayen - La Cortina- Santa Elena
breakfast we enjoy a refreshing bath at the Kawi waterfall with an 8m
high drop from where you we jump into the water. Afterwards we walk to
a viewpoint of the flat top mountains and have lunch in the Indian
community of San Francisco. The last attraction is the adrenalin
pushing walk behind the waterfall: La Cortina. This attraction depends
on the water level because safety comes first, but in 80% of the
excursions we can do it! An unforgettable experience! Then we return to
Santa Elena, where our tour ends.
