ADVICE AND SUGGESTIONS:


The Gran Sabana
provides us with the opportunity to undergo a journey through the most ancient formations on the planet.  For this reason, it is important to respect and preserve it. Our behaviour towards this gorgeous area should be reasonable, in this way, maintaining the equilibrium and natural harmony that this area offers.  Do not leave behind waste and avoid the use of chemical products in and around the areas you visit.

We should point out that the area offers various types of activities on which one can embark, which include: Paragliding, White water rafting, body rafting, eco-friendly tours, adventurous and scientific.  In addition to this you can take pleasure in gazing at the impressive celestial skies, in which you can see cosmic dust and of course there is…peace, tranquillity, and silence!!

In order to enjoy a wonderful vacation do not forget the following:

  • The main road is completely paved, any vehicle can reach any areas that are close to it, which in and of itself is enough to leave with memorable experiences.  The road to Brazil is found to be in very good condition.
  • Always bring your personal documents of identification with you, whether its your identification card or passport (valid) in addition to your driver’s license and the original ownership documents for your vehicle, if you would like to cross the border into Brazil, in which case it is necessary to have the required documents (originals only, no copies).
  • Keep in mind, that rented vehicles can not pass the frontier into Brazil. The furthest you can go is to la Linea, which is the town on the border of Brazil with Venezuela.
  • Do not forget to keep your car in good conditions and to bring a spare tire, also in good condition, with you.  It’s possible that the appropriate authorities might stop you on the road, to inspect and confirm this point. You should have with you the necessary tools in your vehicle such as a safety triangle, auxiliary battery cables, and a little bit of additional gasoline, keeping in mind that during some stretches the gas stations are very far apart.
  • Do not ingest alcoholic beverages before driving your vehicle.  This puts at risk your life and the lives of others.
  • Do not allow your children or companions to venture into areas of difficult access. In the savannah there are a good amount of poisonous snakes and it is best not to unintentionally bother them.
  • Teach those with you the practice of preservation, respect, and keeping clean the areas that you visit.   
If camping remember the following:
  1. The savannah is extremely humid at night and light and heavy rains fall frequently, which is why a tent with a a waterproof roof cover is advisable.
  2. Flashlight and batteries.
  3. Lamp with fuel.
  4. Gas camp stove.
  5. Garbage bags (remember to always keep the area clean).
  6. Matches or lighters.
  7. Sleeping pad for the tent floor.
  8. Sleeping bag with sleeping pad.
  9. Biodegradable blue soap (do not use detergents or dish washing soap in the rivers or savannah).
  10. Thermos for water and/or coffee.
  11. In terms of recommended clothing, long pants are preferable in order to avoid the pesky insects.  Even so, bring shorts and bathing suits with you so you can enjoy the rivers.  Hiking shoes and comfortable shirts are ideal.
  12. Repellent for the insects.  Baby oil is quite effective for this, the puri-puri (mosquitos) can be very unpleasant.
  13. Always have with you a first aid kit.
  14. Your photo or video camera are crucial for preserving nice memories.
  15. Do not camp near rivers or bodies of water.  The climate in the savannah is unpredictable and there can be a rapid change in water levels.
  16. Camp only in the areas where it is permitted and in the company of others so that in case of an emergency you have someone to turn to.
