More about Napo Wildlife Center:

This luxurious award winning ecolodge was built by the native Kichwa community and is located in the heart of one of the most biodiverse ecosystems on the planet. Ecuador’s Yasuni National Park is rich with extraordinary wildlife and vibrant local culture, spanning nearly 2.5 million acres of Amazonian rainforest. We travel to it on the Napo river in a comfortable 40 seater power boat with bottled water and snacks available. Keep your eyes out along the way for colorful birds, river otters, monkeys and maybe even a tapir or a jaguar!

Napo Wildlife Center is the only lodge within Yasuní National Park boundaries and is one of the most luxurious and sustainably run ecolodges in the Amazon. Stylish cabins have private bathrooms and balconies, ceiling fans, king size beds, hot water and 24 hour electricity. The lodge has incorporated green practices such as wastewater processing and solar power. They have described their missions as generating opportunities for sustainable population growth development, as well as protecting  biodiversity and using ancestral methods of collaboration at the community level. This is the perfect place to experience the Amazon in comfort and style, while supporting the native culture.
