The visit to Huaorani Eco-Lodge was an unmatched cultural experience. Even the trip to the lodge was quite an experience in itself: a scenic road first to Banos and then to Shell, followed by an awesome flight over the sea of green in a cute five-passenger plane, followed by a no less scenic boat ride. We made a stop at... More

I had done an amazon rainforest lodge before in Peru! which was also great! but this one was fantastic. With such a small group, ( there were a total of 8 guests, maximum would be 10) you really did feel like you are in a remote, non touristy rainforest lodge, because you are. All the staff was exceptional, our English... More

This was an incredible opportunity to learn about ways of being and thinking that are vastly different from the ways most of us in developed countries have ever experienced. Go now if you are able as time is changing these people forever. We had some glitches in out trip and if you go you must be prepared to adapt as... More

This was won of the best travel experiences I've ever had. It was rugged, real, well-organized, informative and relaxing. The Huaorani people are humble, gracious and knowledgeable - and their cause and way of life reminds you of the humanity that is being lost in the developed world. From the moment our FANTASTIC ecuadoran guide Roberto picked us up for... More

Our guide Roberto picked us up at our hotel in Quito and as we traveled through the mountains, he gave us the history of the Huaroni people and their company's 20 year relationship with this indigenous tribe. This helped to prepare us for first an exciting flight where we landed on a runway in the midst of the rainforest and... More

Our visit to the Huaorani lodge was very exciting. We had the privelig to visit the ecolodge the Huaorani villages this January, To look over the amazone rainforest from the air was overwhelming and the flight with the small airoplane kind of an adventure. So was the canoetour in the river including birdwatching and fishing big game. The accomadations were... More

A friend and I stayed at Huao Lodge in early January '14 with six other people. We found the "vintage" 5 seater airplane trip there a bit nerve-wracking and were puzzled by the 10 lb luggage weight limit that had been imposed - but no one seemed to respect. But we got along with the minimum change of clothes just... More

Our visit to the Huaorani Ecolodge and communities was a privilege. We felt the tour was designed to show us how very unique and fragile the Huarorani way of life is--so close to the devastation caused by the oil companies. The hope is, of course, that eco-tourism will provide an alternative. I cannot say enough about our local guide. Learning... More

This was the highlight of my trip to South America in November 2013. It was fascinating to see how the tribe would have lived and have been adapting to the outside world since they were contacted in the 1950s. It was a privilege to be there as well as being an adventure. Both our guides were excellent and all the... More

First, the positive: The Huaorani people are exceptionally warm, welcoming and eager to teach people about their culture and welcome them into their way of life. The rain forest was absolutely stunning. The devastation in the edges of the reserve where the oil companies have made in-roads was even more stunning. We went on this trip as a three-generation family.... More
