Amazon Luxury Ecolodge

Built by the natives indigenous of the Kichwa Añangu Community, the cabins at the NWC are just huge and comfortable. The place is really exclusive; there are only 16 private cabins, 12 standard and 4 luxury suites. The cabañas are decorated with native furnishings and are fully equipped with a private room with hot water, ventilation, energy and a balcony with the most incredible views of the jungle and the Añangu Lagoon.

 

The Napo Wildlife Center is a good example eco-tourism projects. The community has invested in an environmental and unique system, probable the best and most advanced of the Amazonia. All waste water is processed to maintain the swamps clean. Also the energy is generated by solar panels, industrial batteries and silent generators, which is an efficient system with minimal environment impacts.

We have in the Social Area a station to provide you hot water, tea or coffee. You can find drinking water in the dispenser located in the restaurant of the Ecolodge and in the jars provided in each cabin, plus a variety of drinks available at the bar of the restaurant.

As simple as a line drawn in water

Your journey from everyday life seems to begin as you ponder the endless tract of tropical vegetation lining the Napo River, headwaters of the mighty Amazon Rainforest in Ecuador. But as you head straight for the forest wall, you suddenly realize that you haven’t seen anything yet. The journey is just about to begin. This is a magical place, where the powerful clay-colored current you’ve traveled on for nearly two hours is cut sharply by a glistening darkness—the quiet black-water stream of Añangu—the passageway that will take you inside the most exuberant place on Earth.

A busy silence inhabited by the largest collection of living organisms

Here, the shear presence of nature is more impressive than anything you could possibly fathom. Your welcome might very well be orchestrated by a hundred different-looking birds, a troop of twenty-odd acrobatic monkeys dancing amongst the branches above you, or the curious gaze of a Giant Otter coolly swimming by. You just never really know just how you’ll be greeted at in the Napo Wildlife Center. This is a place, if there ever was one, where everything is always more than you could ever expect it to be.

KEY ATTRACTIONS AT NAPO

As many creatures as there are comforts

At the Napo Wildlife Center there are attractions and activities for everyone. Visitors are divided into small groups led by a native guide of the Añangu community and a bilingual guide. The climate in the jungle is unpredictable so the tour itineraries are chosen each day before dawn or sunrise.

 

Some of the top activities to do are: the parrot clay licks, the Canopy Observation Tower and the Interpretative Centre. Also you can go on a canoe ride over the Napo River or some guided excursions around the jungle. Every place you go you can enjoy the beauty of nature within your reach.

ECO HOTEL

LUXURYWith only sixteen private bungalows, Napo Wildlife Center offers an intimate life experience with a level of exclusivity unmatched in other jungle lodges. The mission to bring comfort and environmental responsibility together.

KICHWA AÑANGU COMMUNITY

CULTURE

KICHWA AÑANGU COMMUNITYBuilt entirely by the traditional Kichwa Indian Community of Añangu, the Napo Wildlife Center is one of the finest examples of sustainable, community-based ecotourism, actively protecting 82-square miles of pristine rainforest within its private reserve. The lodge’s ecologically sound facilities include electricity from solar energy power.

THE CANOPY TOWER

BIRDING

THE CANOPY TOWERThe 12o-ft (36m) high forest canopy tower is located about 20 minutes from the lodge deep within the terra firme forest. Ascending the sturdy , 12-story, galvanized metal tower allows you to pass through different levels of the forest and emerge on top of the canopy. Here you cross onto a platform that is actually built into the crown of a huge emergent Ceiba tree.

PARROT CLAY LICKS

WILDLIFE

PARROT CLAY LICKSThe two most accessible parrot clay licks in Ecuador are part of the Napo Wildlife Center Reserve. We have constructed viewing blinds on one of this clay licks so that visitors can comfortably watch as hundreds of parrots and parakeets come to eat the clay that aids in the digestion of their diet of unripe seeds and fruits.
