GUEST BOOK

What was your experience?

Excellent journey through the jungle. Excellent trip to the jungle with knowledgable guides, beautiful lodges and good food. Rich environment with lots of birds, monkeys, butterflies and even anaconda's and giant otters. The parrot lick was amazing. We have seen a lot of countries but never seen so rich wildlife.

An amazing trip to an amazing place We just finished a four night stay at the Napo Wildlife Center Ecolodge. The experience was outstanding in every respect: accommodations, staff, service, experiences. The staff was outstanding: housekeeping was performed while we were on exploration and discovery trips with our guide,. The staff quickly learned our names and always engaged us in conversation. The meals were well prepared and we thoroughly enjoyed them. Servings were generous. Edison and Christian, along with others were polite and professional staff members who were attentive and met our requests cheerfully. We enjoyed chatting with them about their lives and backgrounds. Edison would always meet us upon return from an exploration and discovery trek with a cool drink and ice cold towel to cool us off. Most memorable of all was our guide for the entire four days. An intelligent, engaging, skilled young man... Remi. Remi is a wizard at bird calls, spotting birds and a fountain of information on the plants and wildlife in the region. He answered all of our questions with happiness and the right amount of detail. I am sure I will overlook some of the wildlife spotted, but I saw more animals then I expected. We saw: squirrel monkeys, wooly monkeys, howling monkeys, capuchin monkeys, multiple types of herons, parakeets, parrots, toucans, macaws, river otters, caymans, river snakes, a sloth, owls, tarantulas, the famous stinky turkey, several types of spiders and several types of ants Highlights of our exploration and discovery journeys included: the Canopy Tower and the Clay Licks. In short this was a trip of my lifetime and it provided a lifetime of memories. My sincere thanks and appreciation to the entire staff at NAPO Wildlife Center for this experience.

Best lodge in Ecuadorian Amazon jungle My husband and I came here for 3 nights and we loved it! Once in a life time experience. This lodge is the best for spotting the wildlife - literally on the lodge territory you can see many bird species, turtles and even caymans. You need to have the right expectations coming in - it’s not going to be as easy to see the animals as in the Galapagos or on a safari in the African savanna, but we saw A LOT! Giant river otters, 10+ species of monkeys, sloths, snakes, spiders, scorpions, lizards, endless number of beautiful birds, and more. I saw some people complaining about the pace of activities during the day, but it’s not boring by any means. We thought it was perfect. Another thing that is great about this lodge is that it’s owned and managed by the local indigenous community. A great example of how eco-tourism is replacing traditional hunting and/or oil drilling and thus paying for conservation! And the place is very well maintained - the staff if very friendly and helpful, the cabanas are really comfy and you have everything you need.

Natur pur Wir und ich sind viel herumgekommen und dürfen egelmäßig gehobene Urlaube mit Naturausrichtung in tropischen Gebieten erleben. Napo ist nicht nur wegen einer unglaublich schönen und unberührten Natur, sondern auch wegen der Einrichtung an sich einzigartig: Die Lodge wird in dörflicher Gemeinschaft durch eine indigene Gruppe geführt. Sehr freundliche Menschen sind immer bemüht, einem alle Wünsche zu erfüllen. Gutes Essen und Getränke, sehr gepflegte Unterkünfte runden das Bild ab (Achtung: es gibt Altbau- und Neubau, wer mehr Komfort wünscht, bucht sich in einem der Neubau-Cottages mit Glasboden zur nächtlichen Alligatoren Beobachtung ein). Hinter dem Projekt steht keine internationale Hotelgruppe, sondern eine dörfliche Gemeinschaft, die sich bewusst gegen das schnelle Geld vom Erdöl entschieden hat! Die Menschen haben Pfeil und Bogen gegen Ferngläser getauscht und führen heute Touristen durch einen einzigartigen Primärwald mit Jaguar (allerdings schwer zu finden), Affen, Papageinen und und und. Heute waren wir für mehrere Stunden auf einem 40 m hohen Aussichtsturm mitten in einer Baumkrone: 4 Papageien-Arten darunten blau-gelbe und buntrote Aras, 4 Tukanarten, 6 Affenarten, Faultiere, 10 Orchideenarten etc. konnten wir beobachten. Die Tage hier, trotz frühmorgendlichem Aufstehens, waren der absolute Höhepunkt einer insgesamt bewegenden Reise durch Ecuador.
