We had an amazing guide named Louis. Make sure you ask for him before you start your trip. The place is in the middle of the jungle in a very remote area. Do NOT expect any real world comforts. Its quite rough but quite enjoyable...More
I am going to write this not so much as a review as as a highly detailed description of what you are going to encounter, as we felt a little apprehensive all the way through and none of the descriptions really did it for us....More
The visit at Ecolodge was the highlight of my trip to South America! The guides are the best and the huaoranis are so friendly. I especially enjoyed the way we got "educated" in the complexity of the clash between huaorani people, civilication, education and worst...More

We drive down from Quito with our guide some interpretation, nice breakfast a couple of strategic stops and as many stops as you would like for photos, etc to the small city of Shell from where we charter our planes to fly into Huaorani territory.
The grass landing strip is in the main community (Quehueri’ono) and the closest one to the Lodge. Basically we built the lodge in agreement and coordination with the locals away from the community to avoid mixing their ecotourism business with their day-to-day routines. Its 30-45 min downriver (we don’t use motors and the idea is after the drive and flight to reduce the speed acknowledge where you are at and arrive silently to the lodge! Its a very cool way to slow down and let your mind “digest” the journey, now you are in the middle of the Amazon and heart of Huaorani territory!
For more details please visit our Huaorani Ecolodge or Destination Ecuador.
We have a special departure from the 25th to the 28th of March. Please contact us 1-888-207-8615 for more details.
All the best,
The team at the Huaorani Ecolodge
