The Napo Wildlife Center eco-lodge offers travelers a real and unforgettable Amazon jungle trip.
At NWC guests can take part on many activities around the forest and creeks to explore and learn about this unique place home to more than 9,000 animal species. All tours and expeditions are organized in small groups lead by a native and a bilingual guide.
Explore the forest trails along the Napo River and deep in the jungle where several fascinating animals live. One of the wildest of all trails is the Tiputini, a terra firma swamp forest that offers you the opportunity to see wildlife such as monkeys, anacondas, birds, insects, spiders, etc. You never know what creature will cross in front of you!
Animals in the Amazonia waters are as diverse as the ones you find in the forest. Enjoy a canoe riding on the Anangu Lagoon, the Napo River and creeks to find different species of fish, turtles, caimans, piranhas and giant otters – endemic specie found in the Amazon basin.
Parrot Clay Licks
Visit the Parrot Clay Licks in the Yasuní National Park to observe a stunning natural spectacle. Hundreds of colorful birds such as parrots, macaws and parakeets gather in this unique site to obtain the minerals contained in the soil that help them to digest the fruits and seeds they feed with.
Canopy Observation Tower
Located only 30 minutes away from the NWC, the Canopy Observation Tower is a 36 meters high wooden platform that offers you stunning views of the wilderness surrounding the forest.

Do not forget to take your camera and binoculars with you because there is no other place in the jungle with such an incredible view!
