First word of warning, don't buy a trip outside the country. Trips are expensive when purchased at the official exchange rate. You can save thousands by purchasing a tour in Caracus. All the tours are identical, same itinerary the only difference is the price. We paid a lot for the three day tour $250 per person, others paid 1/2 that. You will pay upwards of $2500 for a foreign booked tour. The trip is amazing, the lower falls incredible, especially walking behind the falls (first day)
The second day is spent sitting in a canoe riding the rapids. It is wet, everything will get wet, they wrap bags is plastic, but take a water proof bag for the electronic gear, as canoes can tip. They also let you store your items in the tour offices before you leave for the falls, do this and only take a change of clothes. You will need, shoes that can get wet, insect repellant, sun screen, hat, sunglasses, a zoom lens on you camera, plus warm clothes for the night.
There is no vegetarian food.
Don't miss. The stars at night, swimming in the fresh water, cheap rum ($3.00 per bottle) and whisky or splash for $2.00 cocktails on your first night!
Your departure flights and times are in indication of departures EG will leave any time FROM 2pm, (all flights in the country operate the same way) Planes are late ,cancelled or seats given to a "local of importance' however 200 mtrs outside the "airport" is a wonderful bar overlooking the falls, tell the airline where you are and they will come and find you when the plane finally arrives.
Its also relatively safe
