Superb place located in the middle of the Amazon region. The premises are located in a very remote area in the Amazon region, you will realize how far you are from the cement jungle as soon as you step in the small plane which will take you to the small community where the Lodge is located. listening to mother nature talk to you all day thru is priceless. Our guides Gustavo & Bai (Huaorani) are very knowledgable, so take the opportunity to ask as much as you can about the history, background and all sort of issues related to The Huaorani Community in Ecuador, you will know so much after this trip. The project is 100% locally managed so you will get to experience what is to live in the jungle among this unique group of people. The trip is certainly a cultural experience, chatting with the local people and trying to inmerse in their daily lives is an opportunity in a milllion. There are also another activities such as walks in the nature, kayak, camping and most importantly discover small communities and their habitants. Be sensible when you visit these areas and enjoy your trip!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Stay in an eco-lodge situated at the headwaters of the Amazon and run by the Huaorani, one of the most isolated ethnic groups on earth: first contacted by the outside world only 55 years ago, they speak a language that is unrelated to any other. You’ll learn to use a blowgun, hear their leader relate the tribe’s fight against oil exploration, and take a two-day meander down the Shiripuno River in kayaks, watching for tropical birds and monkeys.Highly Commended -The Virgin Holidays Responsible Travel Award 2009 and 2010Best Company in Innovation 2010 - LATATrips of a Lifetime award by Travel & Leisure 2010Best Sustainable Tourism Project 2008 and 2009 - LATABest Adventure Travel Companies on Earth by National Geographic 2009 ... more less
