    Is the walking on Roraima difficult?

    You walk for a couple of days across gently rolling hills, and ford a couple of shallow rivers before arriving at the base of Roraima. These 2 days are easy, it can get hot but the walking itself is fine. The day up to the top of the tepuy is the most strenuous.

    The first few hours are through rainforest and jungle, until you emerge about halfway up on a wide ledge for a breather. From here, you follow a (wide) trail along the side of the cliff, and it can be rocky underfoot in places. The final push is a bit of a scramble over a small boulder field, under a very light waterfall (more mist than water!) until you pop out on the top.

    The route back is the same, just in reverse.

    What clothing is best for this part of the Americas?

    It can get hot and sweaty here at times, so lightweight cotton (or quick-drying fabrics) is best as a starting point! Long sleeved shirts and trousers will help prevent mosquito bites, especially in the evenings when they could be buzzing around. You should also take a jacket and/or sweater for evenings, as it will cool down. Essential kit includes some sunglasses and a sunhat, along with good sunscreen. A lightweight waterproof jacket or rain poncho is optional, as you can get some tropical rain here now and again!

    Is the luggage really restricted to 10kg?!

    This is only a recommendation, but you should try and pack as light as possible for this trip. The main problem are the internal Cessna flights, as they are very small aircraft and luggage is very restricted. The exact arrangements can change from trip to trip, depending on what weight luggage people have taken.

    There is no hold in the airplanes, it all travels in the back with you, and if there is too much, then it either has to be sent by road or an extra airplane seat has to be bought to balance the weight. If this cost is split between the group, it's not too bad but you should realistically allow $100 for this. It's expected that most people will be over 10kg to some extent, but you should try and be as little over as possible.

  •  

    Are dollars best for this trip?

    Yes, taking a mix of dollar denominations is the best idea for this trip. Taking cash is fine, as long you excercise the same degree of common sense you would at home. The leader will best advise you on changing it once you arrive. ATMs are becoming more common but you shouldn't rely on them 100%, in case there are any problems.

  •  

    How long are the driving days?

    Because of the distances involved, and the road conditions, some drives can feel long. However, there are ample opportunities to stop so you can grab something to eat or use the toilet. A long lunch stop is also within the itinerary, so you should have plenty of chances to stretch your legs!. Karol Rogacki - Customer Operations

  •  

    Anything essential I need for this trip to Venezuela?

    Some bug spray is definitely a must, as the nights in the jungle will attract all manner of insects! You do have mosquito nets over the hammocks, but it's wise to cover ankles and arms morning and evening.

    How do I compare trips for my next adventure?

    To compare trips for consideration, you can add them to your 'Shortlist'.

    During your search for your next adventure you can save 'holidays' to your Shortlist and compare trips. For this to work correctly, you must be signed in during your 'user session'; i.e. during your time on the Exodus website. These will then be saved in your account (don't have an Exodus website account?  Sign up now!).

    The Shortlist menu item (top of every page) only appears when holidays are added. Adding holidays can be done by clicking on the 'Add to shortlist' with the 'Heart' symbol on any 'Holiday' page above the 'At a Glance' section, or in the 'holiday' panels within Search Results pages, or in the 'You might also like...' section at the foot of the trip page viewed. The selected holidays will be saved into your account for consideration and can be removed there, as well as from the 'compare trips' page from the menu link located at the top of every page.
