Nature… The biggest book in the world, a book open to each eye on each country, the source of wisdom, the mother of balance. Nature is able to get us in our center and make us connect with our roots. If there is a place in the world where nature defies time and becomes a wonderful ally, that’s Canaima. Discover the grandeur of a giant named Salto Ángel (Angel Falls), the colossus Auyantepuy and a waterfall called like a frog. That’s what defines this blessed land.
But, you can not be in Canaima without stay in Wakü Lodge, which is the most famous camp because of its perfect location just in front of the most beautiful places, the impeccable facilities and an excellent attention.
Founded in 2001, the design of Wakü Lodge is inspired in a fusion of cultures. You can see features from the venezuelan indigenous tradition and a demonstration of lodges all around the world. Just imagine to enter to the more tradicional huts of South America with vestiges of the best hunting camps in Africa.
This impressive refugee is in the middle of the Mother Nature. It has around 25 rooms, a restaurant and the most incredible gardens.
Nicolás Serrato, public relations specialist and photographer, told us that his first experience in Canaima was as a tourist in Wakü Lodge and that what surprised him was the so careful attention he received despite being in one of the remotest parts of Venezuela.
The worry about the details is one of their qualities. Inside the rooms you can found air conditioning, hot water service, and daily cleaning. Besides, there is a little space where you can sit in open air and found a traditional Venezuelan hammock to enjoy of the sounds of nature: the sing of the birds and the crash of water.
There is another important detail, in the huts you can hear Venezuelan music, but don’t worried about the volume, everything is made for you to feel in a relaxing and easy environment.
We know that your stay here is not fulfilled without some wildlife. That’s why there are a lot of amazing birds of colors (macaws, tucanes and parrots), species of monkeys and iguanas.
Also, there is variety of exotic flowers like orchids (the national flower of Venezuela) and andromelias.
Being in Wakü Lodge helps you to construct the whole package. Canaima Tours, affiliate company, resolves the problem of how to get there, it doesn’t matter where you are.
On the other hand, there are tours from Canaima, one of the most famous is the visit to Kavac or to overfly the Angel Falls. Those tours are made with Trasmandú, another affiliate company.
Also undertake little trips in canoe, indigenous millenarian boat. Ensuring greater security specialist pilot the ship back to safeguard tourists. It can travel about 11 or 12 people.
Nicolas Serrato, recommended as a best time to go to Canaima, the rainy season. “It’s when it gets nicer, the falls are filled with water, and everything is in its greatest magnitude.” There you will find in your room a view of a rainbow perched on the most beautiful waterfalls. But summer also brings the atmosphere of the lack of storm on flights or boat trips.
There are some noising insects in this land. That’s why we recommend you to bring repellent. In a week you can discover all the places in Canaima. There are plans to visit the Angel Falls, one of the world wonders in three days. You can wake up in a hammock with the view of this spectacular miracle of God.
Our last advice is that, if you don’t visit Canaima, you don’t really know about nature. This is the perfect place to find our origins. Don’t lose the opportunity to be in a natural environment in the best inn of Venezuela: Wakü Lodge.
