6 days light backpacking (extra porters can be hired locally if required). Altitude maximum 2810m, average 1500m. Travel by internal flight and private minibus.
5 nights in guesthouses and 1 night hotel, all en-suite, 1 night basic hotel, 5 nights wild camping, 1 night in hammocks.
12 breakfasts, 9 lunches and 10 dinners included.
There are parts of the ascent and descent of Roraima where there are exposed sections in which your hands are needed to help you up: confident footwork is essential.
It can be hot, humid and wet in this area of Venezuela and although the climb is not technically difficult, these conditions can make the going quite challenging in places. We travel to a remote part of Venezuela on this trip, and most of the towns that we pass through have limited facilities (except for Ciudad Bolivar).
You should be prepared to stay in reasonably basic accommodation and also to spend one night in hammocks (in order to get close to Angel Falls). We reduce the driving distance covered on this trip by using internal flights chartered especially for the group - these are a highlight in themselves as they enable us to experience the savannah from the air!
Normal group size and age
Normally 4 to 14, plus leader. Minimum age 16.
The vast majority of Exodus adventures are adult group holidays. Groups are always small in size. We strongly believe that this adherence to small groups means a better experience for all; more time with your guide, less waiting around and a reduced impact on the communities and environments visited.
Each group is generally made up of like-minded travellers - with singles, couples and friends all joining in together. All these trips are suitable for single travellers, but if you prefer to travel with clients booking individually, please see our Solo Departures page.
In order to provide a more accurate grading system, where a trip falls between two grades we use an intermediate or split grade, for example Moderate/Challenging. Occasionally, there are optional activities available en route, in this case the optional grade is indicated in brackets, for example Grade Challenging (climb Tough+). Clearly, conditions may differ from region-to-region or month-to-month and as such the information given on these pages is designed to act as a guide only. In all cases you should refer to the respective holiday's Trip Notes for further details.
Walking & Trekking: Trips are wholly trekking-focused or simply include a significant number of walking days during the itinerary.
