About Akangau Jungle Expeditions
We design thoughtfully customized travel itineraries. As an indigenously managed jungle tour operator, we at Akangau Jungle Expeditions invite you to engage in our rich culture, and to experience Kichwa community life, all in the heart of the Amazon Jungle. Some of our tours are based on getting to know different parts of the beautiful Ecuadorian jungle. The idea is that travellers not only see the touristy area when they visit a site, but rather get off the beaten trail and explore and see other areas of the Amazon region. In this way, we offer other communities the opportunity to be part of the tourism network, encouraging the local people to work as well as promoting nature conservation and the appreciation of their culture.
