Ecuador Amazon

The Amazonian rainforest in eastern Ecuador is a densely rich wildlife region with a character all of its own. With its own weather patterns and distinct culture, the forest provides quiet and beautiful opportunities for experiencing an awe-inspiring array of natural wildlife. 
There is so much going on here! The Equadorian Amazonian rainforest is home to around 800 different species of fish, 350 species of reptiles, more than 300 mammals and an estimated 1600 bird species. Among the thousands of plants and trees that make up this region of Amazon rainforest there are a number of local tribes which have inhabited these magical realms for many thousands of years. Many of these indigenous tribes are now under ever increasing threat from the processes of logging and oil extraction.

What to expect in The Equadorian Amazon Rainforest

The Ecuadorian Amazon is often overlooked by the pilgrimage of nature lovers heading for the natural wonders of the Galapagos Islands, but this rainforest is well worth a visit. Those who do come here are rewarded with a wealth of wildlife in a quieter, unique although severely threatened natural wonderland.

Where to stay

There are many lodges that you get to by catching a short flight and then a 4x4 or/and boat ride along the river to reach your remote lodge - Sani Lodge is our top tip.

Top tip

We recommend rising early to lie in your hammock and listen to the unique noises of the forest, fending off the morning chill with a hot cup of fresh local coffee.
