Camp Ucaima is the oldest in the area of Canaima.
The well known and legendary Rudolf "Jungle Rudy"
Truffino built his camp in Ucaima ("What attracts"
in the Pemon language), a few minutes by jeep upriver
from the famous Canaima Lagoon on the banks of the Carrao
River in 1956. A natural of the Netherlands, Rudy arrived
here in 1952 and after years of intense work he organized
the first expeditions in what was then a completely unknown
place for the entire world. The camp is now managed by
his three daughters who provide a warm and friendly service
to the guests and are always available for chatting about
the beauty of the Lost
quiet accommodations in one of the 5 comfortable bungalows
provide all the comfort you could wish in this wilderness
with just 14 rooms to ensure a first quality service and
attention to all guests. The installations are beautiful
and the environment offers good taste, privacy and simplicity.
The rooms feature private bathroom and a porch with hammocks.
