Waku Lodge

Waku Lodge, Gran Sabana and Angel Falls, Venezuela

Waku Lodge has the best location of all the lodges in Canaima situated right on the banks of the Canaima Lagoon with a spectacular view of the El Hacha, Golondrina and Ucaima waterfalls. The surrounding gardens are beautifully sculpted and are home to various tame parrots and macaws. There are only 15 rooms all individually decorated in local Purmon style with air-conditioning, en suite with hot water shower and semi-private terraces with hammock. The lodge offers some (expensive) excursions to the surrounding area and includes a 15 minute complimentary boat trip on the lagoon. Wifi is available in most areas.
