After breakfast, transfer to the Canaima Airport for the start of the Kavac tour. After an exciting and daring flight through Devil's Canyon onboard the private Cessna 206, you will land on the isolated dirt strip at the Pemon Indian outpost of Kavac.

Located southeast of Auyan tepui, Kavac is an Indian settlement of the Pemon group. From Kavac you will be lead on foot by a Native Pemon Indian across the rolling savannah. As you approach the Kavac gorge the vegetation changes abruptly into dense jungle, the hiding place of ocelots, anteaters, macaws, parrots, and toucans. You may enjoy the Kavac River and its many swimming holes formed in the cavities of reddish shining rocks.

This amazing gorge was carved out by the waterfalls on the slopes of the flat-topped mountains over centuries. The rocks of the flat-topped mountains are between 1,800 and 3,600 million years old, which are considered the planet's oldest. Directly ahead are Auyan-tepui towers close to 3,000-m. After passing idyllic waterfalls you know you are very close when arriving to an immense wall that uninterruptedly drips crystal water drops from the tips of the wall's ferns. The entrance is separated by a small lagoon that you must swim across. Return to the plane for a fly-over tour of the Angel Falls before returning to your lodge.
