The Ecuadorian Amazon: Stay with an Amazonian tribe

Visit Us

Stay with an Amazonian tribe

For a rainforest experience like no other, guests at Sani Ecolodge can gain an intimate insight into the living culture of a native Amazonian tribe.It's a commuinity owned and run lodge so you get plenty of contact with local people.

This sustainable, community-focused lodge can only be reached by a combination of light aircraft, motor launch and dugout canoe, setting the tone for an adventurous stay. Visitors will discover first-hand how people live in remote jungle communities, how they make use of the forest's resources, and about the toll of oil exploration on them and their lands. It's a hands-on experience: you'll learn how to set traps, make fire without matches, build a shelter in minutes, use a blowgun, practice the perfect swing of the machete and catch fish in jungle lagoons. The lodge is in a great wildlife spotting setting too, with thousands of variety of trees, hundreds of birds, and even 13 species of monkey populating the region.
