Because of this super abundance of water, many plants and animals have been at home here for millions of years. Many scientists come here in search for new discoveries and to find out about the secrets of the Lost, that Arthur Conan Doyle writes about. 600 Million years is worth a trip to find out about it, right? The Salto Angel is one of the highlights in Venezuelan Tourism.

Mainly during the rainy season (June-November) the fall is absolutely breathtaking. Due to this fact, there are lots of visitors. We try to avoid tourist crowds and therefore start our trip in Kavak (Kamarata) instead of Canaima, from where all excursions start, because of its nearness to the fall. We use indian curiaras (boats) to go down the Akanan and the Carrao river. Our trip continues for a few days, we sleep in hammocks equipped with mosquito nets in simple camps along the way and unfortunately will have to do without ice cold beer or drinks for a few days.

Tour Itinerary:

Day 1: Flight Ciudad Bolivar to Kavac. Flight Ciudad Bolivar in a small propeller airplane to Kavak. If the weather permits we will have a first look of the Gran Sabana and its spectacular table-mountains, called Tepuyes. Kavak, a typical Indian village of the Pemon tribe, is situated on the eastern wall of the mighty Auyantepuy, mountain from where the famous Angel Waterfall thunders 3,240 feet into the wild jungle and which is going to be our final destination. Meanwhile we visit the cave of Kavak in the afternoon, always startled by the power of water all around us. In order to get to the impressive waterfall we have to swim through a small canyon. Here in Kavak we will spend the night.

Day 2: Boat trip on the Acanan river to the Iwana Meru camp
In the morning we hike or drive to the nearby village of Kamarata, from where our trip by Indian boat begins. This black-water river Acanan introduces us into a magic world of wild jungle, changing to open desert like plains always in company of its majestic "Kings" the Table mountains. We spend the night at camp Iwana Meru.

Day 3: Boat trip on the Acanan River to Camp Arenal. After breakfast we’ll be back on the water, heading for rio Carrao. The fascinating scenery all around us presents another of the giants around here: the Wei-tepuy. But this is not all the excitement for the day since we have to pass some tricky rapids on the Carrao river in order to get to the camp. Devils canyon is the name!

Day 4: Hiking to Salto Angel. Better be in good shape today. Early we start our trip and soon will meet up with a small river called Churun, which will be our guide to lead us to Salto Angel. Our speed depends a lot on the water level and in case of low water we have to get out and walk while the Indios drag the boat over the problem spots. Our walk takes us for about 1,5 hr. through thick and fantastic jungle where tall Ferns compete with even taller Palms entwined by Orchids and Bromelias and other rarities. As we reach some kind of a plateau we can see the Fall in all its beauty and splendor. Well, all this effort and excitement calls for a refreshing bath down below in some nearby lake. After this we return to our camp in the afternoon and spend another night.

Day 5: Boat trip to Canaima and Flight to Ciudad Bolivar. We go downstream on the river Carrao. We pass the island of the orchids and the ¨Pozo de la Felicidad - Fall until we get to the upper part of the Hacha - Falls in Canaima. Visit of Salto Sapo. Flight from Canaima to Ciudad Bolivar.
