Gran Sabana North Route

Gran Sabana National Park Canaima

The Gran Sabana is one of the oldest land formation on earth. During millions of years the table mountains have been formed. This classical tour takes us to the most beautiful places of the Gran Sabana. The way leads us to expansive savanna with table mountains in the background such as Roraima, Kukenan, Ptaritepuy and many others. We visit goldmines and breathtaking waterfalls. Our four wheel drive vehicle leads us safely up hill and down dale. We stay in little hotels in double rooms.
