The Gran Sabana is inhabited by several indigenous groups, including the Pemon, who are the most numerous. Canaima National Park, which was created by a decree on the 12th of June, 1962, encompasses most of the Gran Sabana but the areas do not exactly match. In 1975 the Canaima National Park was extended from the original 10,000 km² to 30,000 km², making it the sixth largest national park in the world.
We offer a land tour by 4x4 vehicles across the grasslands of the Gran Sabana from Puerto Ordaz to Santa Elena or vice versa. We visit various landmarks including many waterfalls along the way.
