We then took a motorised canoe up the river Carroo, every twist and turn of the river revealed beautiful new sights and views, it is difficult to describe how stunning it was. Our boat driver was excellent, negotiating through rapids, it being especially difficult as the river was very low, if it had been much lower I doubt we would have been able to make the journey
Our first view of Angel Falls took your breath away, it is 3 times the height of the Empire State building and mesmerising to look at.
Our campsite had what must be one of the best views in the world, directly opposite the falls on the banks of the river. That night we ate roasted chicken that had been cooked on an open fire, and slept in hammocks, I had a fantastic nights sleep and then woke to the view of the falls being revealed from the morning mist - a magical experience. We were lucky to be able to see all of the falls as due to its height it is often shrouded in clouds.
