The Napo Wildlife Center

The Napo Wildlife Center, NWC Amazon Lodge, is a conservation project of more than 82 square miles (53,500 acres - over 21,400 hectares ) of the most pristine Amazon Rain Forest within the Yasunė National Park, an important UNESCO Biosphere Reserve and the largest tract of tropical rain forest in Ecuador.

The lodge complex is located by the Anangucocha lake, within the unique ancestral territory of the Anangu Quichua Community, part of the Yasuni National Park. In the early 90’ the community envisioned building their own lodge to provide themselves jobs and protecting their land. They wanted high quality facilities and accommodations, to provide an exclusive and personalized rain forest experience, intimate with nature, under a dedicated private and unique lodge, but only to a selected number of guests.

Lodging at NWC has been designed to offer maximum privacy and comfort to the world traveller, providing lake and forest views from their private porches, as well as preserving one of the most pristine spots of Amazon forest in Ecuador. Each of our 10 individual large luxury cabanas are prepared for receiving guests in double occupancy or arranged in advance for a 3-member family visit. In addition there is a brand new Family Suite, a larger cabana providing ample space for 4 family members or more with two separate rooms, 2 private bathrooms and amenities, no one misses lake and forest views from the great porch.

Visitors will be divided up into small groups, and lead by a native Anangu guide, who is also an official Yasuni Park Ranger, expert on the forest's secrets about medicinal plants and other useful items of the rain forest, and an excellent bilingual naturalist guide with great deal of knowledge in tropical forest biology.

It is the best place i've ever been, lots of fauna to see, plants, the local people who owns the place are excellent hosts. They are doing somethig good for the Yasuni National and the most important for their community.
I recommend to everyone to come here.
