Highlights of Napo Wildlife Center

  • The Napo Wildlife Centre is a luxury eco-lodge boasting an amazing location inside Yasuni National Park, the most biodiverse ecosystem on the planet, and a protected UNESCO biosphere site.
  • In just one Yasuni hectare, one can find more species of organisms than in the entire European continent! The national park is home to a third of all Amazonian mammals, including a staggering 60% of all New World wild cats, 106 reptiles, and 610 species of bird; as well as more than 4000 species of plants.
  • The concept and construction of the lodge are the brainchild of the Anangu Quichua community who now own 100% of the lodge, so all tour proceeds are re-invested into the community. It is universally recognised as a blueprint for community-based tourism projects.
  • The Napo Wildlife Center lodge has been constructed in natural indigenous style, with luxury accommodation, ample social areas, and a 50 foot wildlife viewing tower.
  • It has built up such a good reputation that both the New York Times and the BBC have visited the site to run nature reports / documentaries.
