Overland Nature Adventure
Sacred land of grandiosity and mystery. Gran Savannah means expansion of mind. Cross “El Dorado”, on a 4x4 vehicle, find gold, diamond mines, indigenous villages and admire the vast extension of the savannah, its clear-water rivers and sandy areas, quiet pools and cascading water falls. Discover the Savannah, land of mythical Tepuys (each Tepuy is associated with an ancient Pemon God), spectacular ancient table mountains isolated by the erosion of time, the oldest rock formations in the world free from the hand of man. We crossed to that world out of time, described by writer Conan Doyle in his novel “THE LOST WORLD”. Lodge at camps far away from civilization. This kind of expeditions requires the collaboration of everyone and a good sense of cohabitation of participants.
