Canaima National Park was established on June 12, 1962 and declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1994. It is the gateway to Angel Falls.Although other waterfalls and lagoons can be visited from the Canaima camp, the main reason why tourists fly here is for the three days and two nights of travel to the Angel Falls base.
Canaima has a very varied fauna, which is distributed throughout the park according to multiple environmental factors such as height and type of vegetation. There are more than 300 endemic species in terms of flora only in La Gran Sabana. You can witness spectacular tepuyes (mountainous tablecloths), waterfalls and moriche palm trees. Angel Falls is located on the side of the largest tepui of Venezuela known as Auyantepui.
