Today we’ll have breakfast at dawn; and right after that, we’ll start hiking across the savannah to the Kukenan River. Crossing the river can be a little difficult if the water level is too high; your guide will help you wade through, though. If it has been raining the hours prior to crossing the river, you may be requested to wait a few hours until the water level gets lower, you'll get wet anyway! After a 5-hour hike, we'll finally arrive at the base camp near Roraima. Your tent will be set up in a way you can watch the savannah on one side and Mount Roraima on the other.
