Look forward to...

Climbing the truly spectacular table top Roraima mountain. It takes five days but the views are like nothing else on earth.

Seeing Angel Falls, the highest in the world.

Visiting Los Llanos, more abundant with wildlife than the Brazilian Pantanal.

Riding the longest and highest cable car in the world, into the high Venezuelan Andes.

Feel that the days of daring discovery and challenging exploration are long gone? We can help. Here at Black Tomato we have the perfect adventure: free of heaving crowds, buzzing blackberries and golden arches, Venezuela is seriously intrepid in the old school way. Reignite your love of adventure travel on a trek through lush rainforest to your very own ‘Lost World’.

jungle exploration

Deep in the country’s south by the Brazilian border, you’ll find ‘The Lost World’, as it was named by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, or ‘La Gran Sabana if you’re local. Here lies 18,000 square kilometres of pristine, protected rainforest, and unique, enthralling landscapes.

With our expert guides you’ll trek through wild terrain and breathtaking - figuratively and literally - scenery to reach Mount Roraima, a towering tabletop mountain soaring over the surrounding countryside. Summit the 2,810 metre peak to explore even further and access a seemingly forgotten wilderness complete with flowers and animals found nowhere else on earth. Here you can settle down for a night under the stars – after a seriously awe-inspiring day you’ll sleep the sleep of a satisfied explorer, resting up before the next discovery.

From mountain peak to valley floor you’ll make your way downwards and trek past surging rivers and cascading waterfalls before emerging from the rainforest. Then, to rest from all the adrenalin, cool down in the archipelago of Los Roques off the Caribbean coast. You'll stay at the most exclusive property on Gran Roque, Posada Malibu. Truly heavenly.

Don’t worry though; all bar one of the islands are uninhabited so you have no chance of being reintroduced to humdrum civilisation too soon. Hire a yacht to sail brilliant turquoise oceans and explore miles of deserted, caster-sugar beaches, or dive underwater to witness some of the Caribbean’s most stunning coral reefs.

picture perfect

While other holidaymakers will have spent their precious time off jostling for space on packed beaches and exploring only as far as the buffet table, you’ll have navigated prehistoric valleys and seen unearthly vistas untouched by man, before retiring to miles of flawless strand on your own deserted island. The perfect, picture-postcard ending to your epic journey through one of the world’s last great wildernesses (and a great excuse for some serious post-trip bragging).
