    Yanira Caicedo

    Roraima is an amazing place, totally powerful and special and Akanan Amazing Adventures makes it memorable. A well ogranized excursion, that brings you to varied experiences and enables you to interact with pristine nature and pure energy, I highly recommend it for family groups or to create new connections, there is so much to see than one visit is still little.

  2. Rated 5 out of 5

    Manuel A. Patiño 06-09-2016

    Roraima is a great trip. It is the right place to start to hike tepuys, because it is accessible and of relatively low difficulty. The walk by the plains (sabana), the hike to the top and the landscape at the top are just wonderful experiences. Akanan has developed a great logistics and expertise in this trip. Definitely they are the one to take you to this trip.

  3. Rated 5 out of 5

    Christophe Bernard – March,02 2018

    This trip was better than in my dream. Alexander and his family were fantastic. The equipment very good. Food was good too (more than we usually eat !). Overall fantastic experience. Only thing I am unhappy about: we crossed the border to Santa Elena on a Sunday. But the Roraima experience was so amazing that it more than tampers the incident. Best. Christophe and isabelle.
