Located in an isolated zone of pristine rainforest within the Yasuni National Park, this community project is a comfortable campsite designed to offer the most authentic experience possible in this amazing region. Connect with the jungle in a way not possible in a traditional lodge; sense your surroundings in a sheltered, elevated comfortable tent, complete with mattress and bedding. Your visit to the camp will help improve access to quality education and medical care for the members of the Mandari Panga community, and provides a strong incentive for the conservation of the incredible ecosystem of the Yasuni National Park.

Exactly what we were looking for - and much more! We were in the middle of nature and its sounds (during our stay we had repeated visits from Tapir Salvador). We could feel the guides love for nature and their great know-how about it and were able to experience it in small groups on our hikes, canoe trips and fishing. The way the whole Mandari Panga project is set up is highly recommended and worthy of support. Thank you, Freddy and the team for your human kindness. A very loving and personal project.

The best option for an authentic, non- "touristy" Amazon ecosystem experience, this is as far as you can get into the world's premier biodiversity region, the Yasuni, a UNESCO world heritage site. There are no other tourist or commercial sites in this 100 mile-long Rio Tiputini valley. Freddy, Eric, Kevin, Mr. Abrahm, and others form a brilliant Kichwa interpretive team who will spot and explain the traditional uses for the stunning old growth jungle flora and fauna. You're mostly outdoors all day, so pick the dry season; by early Feb. we had virtually no rain, no mosquitos. Stay a week; kayaking the rivers and blackwater ponds, fishing, hiking, and the wonderful local-cuisine meals will keep you quite busy. Flexible, customized schedule for each visitor. We did two fascinating night hikes. The bug-proof canopy and elevated luxury platform tents (ask for Camp 5) really exude a "living in the Amazon" feel that one can't get on the adjacent Rio Napo (downstream from the city of Coca.) All this, and part of your fee funds the neighboring (upriver on the Rio Tiputini) Kichwa people's community school and education program; you'll meet "Grandma", the community's founder. Founded by Freddy and his team and community c. 2014; wonderful 2019 dining facility-lounge.

Room Tip: "Camp 5" is the best and most remote, most of the ten have nice river views.

Stayed five days, each filled with amazing experiences. Incredibly friendly staff who will try their best to make your stay as comfortable and exciting as possible. While you're there keep an ear out for the beautiful calls of the Russet-backed oropendola.

Mandari Panga could offer us the exact thing we were looking for. An authentic and sound experience of a tropical rainforest with its unique fauna and flora. It was great that we could get a very individual itinerary with a combination of some days in the camp and some days on a kayak trip down the river. The planning and booking at the office in Quito went very smooth and nicely. All the guides and staff were super friendly and helpful. Their knowledge about nature is amazing. The activities offered were very diverse and all of them were super good. You could always choose what you preferred to do. The camp is very very nice, the only tourist camp on the river, located in the middle of the forest on the river bank. If you're lucky you can see the monkeys in the trees across the river. All the facilities are very neat and the tents were super cozy and comfortable. The food was extraordinary too! For us everything was just perfect! A big thank you to all of the Mandari Panga team and the whole community! A special thank you to our guide Eric who did a perfect job providing us this unique experience! Pagarachu :-)

We stayed 7 nights in Yasuni National Park at the Tiputini River with the team from Mandari Panga Lodge and had a great time. The Mandari Panga Lodge, a community project, is located at a very nice spot along the river, with no other lodges around. The only sounds you hear, is wildlife. The very attentive team from the community serves excellent local food, has very knowledgeable guides and takes care of everything which makes the trip a great and save experience. During our stay, we also went on a 4 days paddling trip with wild camping along the Tiputini. We learnt much about wildlife and how people live there. We felt save at any time, had much fun and would go there any time again. Big thanks to Fredy (the manager and our tour guide) and his team.
