Peaceful and agreeable lodge in an impressive natural setting, with spacious and comfortable rooms decorated in traditional style. A good base for visiting Angel Falls and Canaima National Park.

A good base for a visit to the park to Angel Falls and the surrounding “lost world” landscapes of Canaima, the agreeable Waku Camp lodge is set in its own well-tended grounds beside a pink sandy lagoon, framed by the cliffs supporting the impressive Hacha Falls beyond

The spacious terracotta-hued guestrooms are in cottages, with private bathroom and a patio with chairs and a hammock. The architecture is typical of the region, with moriche palm-thatched roofs, but the furnishings and fittings, although simple, are well up to mid-range hotel standard and surprisingly comfortable for such a remote place. There is a lounge area and a large thatched restaurant which serves buffet meals. 

The lodge is only five minutes from the airstrip but the friendly and accommodating staff arrive to greet you nonetheless, and a boat trip on the lagoon is also included. Optional excursions can be arranged locally, including a flight over the Angel Falls or a full-day trip to the base of the falls by canoe (May-October only).
