Gran Sabana South Route

Gran Sabana Canaima National Park

The jeep tour to Gran Sabana and El Pauji is a tour where we will drive from Santa Elena, at the frontier with Brazil, crossing the Massive Guyanese. El Pauji is a small community bordering Brazil was settled by "outsiders" in the 1980s - young urban couples with an artistic bent, seeking a more spiritual, natural and peaceful environment in which to raise children. We will do an interesting tour of more than 500 Kms. (round trip) and we will have the opportunity of admiring the beauty and fascinating natural landscapes of La Gran Sabana. We will see very impressive waterfalls, and grandiose Tepuys, (mountainous flat formations that abruptly rise from the plains that abound in this geological area, the most ancient of the planet). We will approach the indigenous populations in the cities of Iboribó, San Francisco de Yuruani and others.
