The Napo Wildlife Center is a place unlike any other. It is a comfortable, luxury, eco-lodge situated in the heart of the Yasuni Park, in the Amazon Rainforest in Ecuador.
Administered by the native Kichwa Añangu community, this renown, award-winning ecotourism project, was built with the most perfect design to provide visitors with the maximum comfort and privacy and, at the same time, a truly wildlife experience.
Under the pressure from oil industries who wanted to destroy the forest, the Kichwa Añangu community built this project with the main goal of preserving all of the natural areas and animals of this Amazon rainforest area which is one of most rich and diverse natural environment on the planet.
This luxury eco-lodge project was built entirely by the community and since then it became a viable and sustainable community because of ecotourism.
All of the profits this project receives are used for the community itself to develop other educational, health and conservation projects for the benefit of the region.
The Napo Wildlife Center is a place designed with all the comfort of a hotel. There are 16 luxury eco-lodges with a capacity of 2 or 3 people each. The rooms include a king bed or two twin beds, a private bathroom with hot water and a terrace with views of the lake and the rainforest. The design of the Center is a combination of the traditional native architecture and a modern style at the interior.
The restaurant area features one the best views of the place. While you are having breakfast or lunch you can see giant otters or even a large black caiman across the Anangucocha Lake.
There are many activities to do in the center. Visitors are divided into small groups and each groups is led by a community guide and a bilingual guide. Among the activities there are bird watching, day and night jungle walks, canoeing and visiting the Kichwa Añangu community center to learn about their ancestral customs and traditions.
One of the best attractions of the place is the Canopi tower, of more than 30 meters high, from which you can see an incredible view of the rainforest. The lick nearest the Napo (locally known as Saladero de Loros) is another most to see places in the Center.
The Napo Wildlife Center is situated in the Yasuni park, a rainforest area declared by UNESCO as biosphere preserve due to the diversity of unique and endemic species you can find in there.
There are more than 100,000 species in the area, from amphibians, reptiles, insects to mammals, birds, fish and different plants, this place is considered one of the most complex and diverse ecosystems on earth.
The Napo Wildlife Center was perfectly thought to offer visitors an unforgettable Amazon rainforest tour experience. All over the place you can feel the nature and wildlife in its entire splendor. From the blue and yellow macaws flying over the lodge to the overwhelming concert of natural sounds flooding the environment… it is a real paradise.
