The Gran Sabana is located in the eastern part of Venezuela and includes a large expanse of plateau which is dominated by open savannas that emphasize the numerous Tepuyes. Numerous rivers and waterfalls that run north to south, are part of the combined form of the upper basin of the Caroni River. This river has an important purpose for the country because its waters feed the Guri Dam, the largest hydroelectric plant in Venezuela. The climate in the Gran Sabana is evergreen rain forests with more than 350 endemic species.
The eastern half of Canaima National Park is crossed by a road, this region is known as the Gran Sabana (English: The Great Plains). La Sabana is a grassy plateau, with an elevation of 900 to 1200 meters. Abounding in natural wonders such as waterfalls, rapids and rainforest, abundant wildlife makes the Savanna is a natural paradise and an ideal place for bird watchers. Mount Roraima is one of the most acclaimed shows of South America.
One of the sites include the largest number of endemic birds of the country is La Gran Sabana, although most are found in the jungles or on the slopes of the tepuis, we see few species in the savanna itself, here are noted for their beauty: Cock of the Rock Umbrella Bird, Bird Cappuccino, Red Cotinga, among others.
Roraima - The Lost World This sparsely populated region is where the three main languages of the Americas crossed with the magnificent Table Mountain of Roraima. Here we can interact with Spanish in Venezuela, Brazilian Portuguese and English of Guyana.
Me alojé aquí con mi hermana ambos lados de nuestra caminata a Roraima en Feb2012. este lugar era increíble! es probablemente la mejor posada/hostal en el que me he alojado. está muy bien decorado, la gente es genial, la comida era genial, y hay incluso agua caliente (el agua caliente que tuvimos durante las 2 semanas en Venezuela). Gracias a Erik de Backpacker Tours, que hizo que nuestro viaje a Venezuela especial. si estás trekking Roraima - estancia aquí!
