Salto Kama
 
The Gran Sabana (Great Savannah - tropical grassland containing scattered trees) is located within the national park Canaima, South of Venezuela. It is one of the major tourist attractions in the country, with views that are unique.

In the Gran Sabana, you can find many water falls. One of the most amazing things about the "Gran Sabana" are the "tepuy", those mountains with flat top and vertical walls. The highest of all is the Roraima, with an altitude of around 2700 meters.

excursion of 4 days and 3 nights

First day:
Departure from Puerto Ordaz or Ciudad Bolivar. Before heading south to the Gran Sabana we'll stop at Cachamay Park located on the Caroni River. A place with lush vegetation and water falls great for refreshing and picture taking. From here we'll continue to the Gran Sabana thru the towns of Upata, Guasipati, El Callao, Tumeremo and El Dorado, all with a gold mining history. In El Callao we'll see miners digging for gold in Los Molinos underground mine. Later we'll stop in Tumeremo for lunch á la carte. After passing El Dorado and going thru the mining village of KM 88 we'll stop briefly at the Natural Monument "Piedra de La Virgen". Local people say, that the silhouette of a woman can be seen on the rock's surface. From here we make the final leg of Day 1 and reach the northern sector of the Gran Sabana at 1.400 meters above sea level. Our first night will be at a modest lodge in Rapidos de Kamoiran in double occupancy rooms with private bath and showers. Dinner will be at the lodge restaurant (same menu for everyone). (-/L/D)

Second day:
After breakfast we'll go to the indigenous village of Liworibo where a 30-minute trip by motorized curiara (a native canoe) will take us to Chinak-meru, a water fall popularly known as Aponwao. With a height of 106 meters it is the highest in the Gran Sabana. After enjoying the site and taking pictures of the falls we'll walk back to the village, and on the way we'll stop at Pozo Escondido and Pozo de Los Enamorados, two water holes where we'll eat our picnic lunch and take a refreshing bath in the cool water, so bring your swimsuit!
