The Napo Wildlife Center is the most luxurious lodge in the Ecuadorian Amazon Rainforest. The lodge offers its visitors 16 cabañas and a large dining hall with a library and a well-stocked bar. Napo Wildlife Center is an exceptional example of a grassroots eco-tourism project. As a responsible and sustainable enterprise, we continuously invest in environmentally conscious infrastructure. Our efforts are among the best and most advanced in all of Amazonia. Energy is generated by solar panels, industrial batteries, and silent generators, which is an efficient system with minimal environmental impact. All water is appropriately processed to maintain a healthy biome. Every aspect of life has been considered with both our guests and Mother Nature in mind.
The most biodiverse place on the planet! There are so many incredible creatures pre-dating human history who call this rainforest home. It would be impossible to see everything there is to be seen here in the span of even one lifetime alone! The local Kichwa people have belonged to this territory for upwards of 500 years, and know the jungle’s secrets like the back of their hands. Let the hospitality of your newfound friends open your eyes to the wonders of life in the old-growth rainforest without sacrificing any of the pleasures of modern life and luxury. Napo Wildlife Center is located inside the Yasuni National Park which is considered one of the most biodiverse places on Earth, spanning nearly 2.5 million acres of lush rainforest. The Ecuadorian Amazon is home to more than 600 bird species. The splendors of the Amazon are unforgettable!
