The Napo Wildlife Center supports a unique, 82-square-mile, private nature reserve on the northern edge of the Yasuni National Park. The reserve and associated lodge were created and built by traditional Quichua Indian Community of Anangu. The Napo Wildlife Center is the only lodge on the south bank of the Napo, which harbors 30% more bird and animal species than the north bank. With parrott licks, Giant Otters, Woolly Monkeys and ten other primates, Napo WIldlife Center is the finest wildlife destination in Ecuador. The lodge consists of 12 luxury cabañas, 2 suites and a large dining hall with a library and a well-stocked bar. Attached to the bar is a 50-foot viewing tower from which you can see the Andes on a clear day! Cabanas are comfortable and spacious and include: one king-sized bed and one twin-sized bed, private bathrooms with hot water showers, private porches with lake views, 24-hour electricity, ceiling fans and secure screens for plenty of bug-free ventilation.
The Napo Wildlife Center provides rubber boots (up to US men's size 11) and nylon rain ponchos free of charge to those guests who request them. You may choose to use your own boots or sneakers for forest hikes depending upon the conditions. Likewise, you may bring your own raingear. Of course soap, shampoo, towels, and other such items are provided just as they are at any luxury hotel. There is a 44-pound (20kg) per person baggage weight limit on the flights from Quito to Coca, and overage will be charged directly by the airline. This limit should not pose a problem to most Napo Wildlife Center travellers, and most hotels in Quito will store your dress clothes and heavy jackets for you while you are with us. We suggest that you consider the following general packing guidelines, but please consult your travel agent if you have any questions. There are obviously many personal choices that can alter this list (pants with zip-off legs, for example) so please view this as a guide and pack
