Napo is quite unlike any other Amazonian lodge. First and foremost it is a wildlife centre so, whilst its private bungalows are very comfortable – even stylish in their simple elegance – it is the wildlife of the Amazon rainforest that is the real attraction here.
Make Napo part of your luxury, tailor-made holiday to Ecuador and you’ll have more species of mammals, birds, reptiles and amphibians on your doorstep than can be found in the entire United States of America. There are over 550 known types of birds alone in this neck of the woods – and so many different plants that many remain unclassified and undiscovered.
And you can meet them by gliding along in a traditional canoe, or walking across the forest floor with an experienced guide.
