A peaceful paddle up the Río Napo transports guests to the Napo Wildlife Center. On the journey in, waters come to life with river otter, electric eel and ray species whilst branches fold from the weight of sloths feeding overhead. These encounters are precursors of what's to come.
This lodge is situated in an untouched area of the Amazon rainforest, surrounded by an 82 square-mile pristine reserve. Napo Wildlife Center offers the most natural experience of the rainforest. This protected tract of land is home to over 600 species of bird, and it is where 60% of new world wild cats reside.
Napo Wildlife Center and its surrounds is protected by guardians of the area, the Kichwa Anangu Community, who used local materials to build the glorious lodge themselves. Today, the community hosts guests in spacious rooms adorned with mahogany and expansive balconies overlooking Añangucocha Lake.
This lodge is for those who wish to expand their knowledge of the natural world and venture into territories that remain unseen by many. With the insight and expertise of naturalist guides, discover species that don’t exist anywhere else - such as the golden mantled tamarin - and help protect animals that are recovering from the verge of extinction.
Climb 36 metres up the canopy tower for expansive treetop views over the rainforest and visit colourful clay-licks for an awakening of the senses. Journey out into the mangroves by canoe and explore the terra firma trails by foot, with surprises along the way as to whose come to join you.
After long daytime excursions, relax with a cool drink and an ice cold towel to cool off. Climb to the top of the main building for panoramic views as the sun descends below the horizon and gorge on delicious cuisine prepared by the local chef.
