Angel Falls & Canaima National Park Holidays

Why visit Angel Falls & Canaima National Park

Covering 80,000 sq kilometres Canaima National Park lies on the Macizo de Guayana, one of the oldest geological formations in the world. A UNESCO World Natural Heritage site since 1994, the park is home to majestic and very impressive table topped mountains known as ‘tepuis’ (Pemon word for mountains), which rise abruptly above the beautiful grasslands, rivers and forests of an area known as Venezuela’s Gran Sabana.

About Angel Falls & Canaima National Park

One such formidable tepui is Mount Roraima, whose top is believed to be the ‘Lost World’ immortalised by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Another celebrated tepui is Auyantepui (Devils Mountain), home to the world's highest waterfall, Angel Falls whose water cascades 979 metres over the rusty-red rock face, down into the mists below. Named after the pilot Jimmie Angel, who discovered the falls in 1937, and then crash-landed on the top, a trek to the base or an over-flight are both stunning highlights of a visit to this area. The park is also inhabited by several Indian communities of the Pemon family and a visit to their communities can easily be arranged. 

  • See Angel Falls in their full splendour from the base - an adventurous trek and boat ride - but well worth the effort 
  •  Walk behind the incredible El Sapo Waterfall, but mind, you will get wet!
  •  Over 500 orchid species can be found in the park. Enjoy a full day visit to Orquidea Island
  •  Experience the world’s highest waterfall from the air
