The Lodge is nestled in a comfortable, intimate setting in the Amazon forest.

Birds and animals abound in this region, and visitors can hike through the forest with expert native guides, kayak on slow-moving rivers, and enjoy the sounds of the Amazon night while camped beside the Shiripuno River. To protect and preserve their land, the five Huaorani communities have set out to create a 55,000-hectare Forest Reserve (which they patrol and maintain) that will ensure the area does not suffer from illegal logging or game hunting.

Making a Difference:

The Huaorani maintain their traditional lifestyle and have opted for sustainable tourism as a way to maintain their culture and protect their rainforest world while improving their standard of living. Huaorani Ecolodge opened in 2008 to international acclaim and has since won a number of awards including the Latin American Tourism Association's Best Sustainable Tourism Project in both 2008 and 2009. At the Lodge, travelers have an opportunity to talk to community elders, see the rainforest through their eyes and understand what it means to live in the Amazon and to have to defend it from loggers and oil companies.
