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
in addition to your driver’s license and
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
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

Teach those with you the practice of
preservation, respect, and keeping clean
the areas that you visit.
