Superb place located in the middle of the Amazon region. The premises are located in a very remote area in the Amazon region, you will realize how far you are from the cement jungle as soon as you step in the small plane which will take you to the small community where the Lodge is located. listening to mother nature...

My husband and I just returned from a wonderful trip to the Ecuadorian Amazon. We knew we wanted to experience the rainforest but were interested in a more remote, unique and cultural experience. After explaining our interest to representatives at the travel company Adventure Life, it was suggested that we stay at Huaorani Lodge, an ecolodge located within the territory...

A friend and I (both teachers in our 50's) stayed at the ecolodge in June 2012 for 5 days. Our guides were Xavier and Ewme and both were excellent. This leg of our three week trip was the highlight and that's saying something considering the other two legs were a cruise in the Galapagos and hiking in Machu Picchu. We...

Ever since I read Joe Kane's book, "Savages," I had wanted to visit the Huaorani. Finding another senior citizen to travel with me, I was set. The trip met all my expectations! I sat beside the pilot in our little five-seater plane taking in the panorama of the jungle unfolding beneath us during our flight from Shell to the narrow...

We stayed in August and had a great time. Everyone else has summarized the trip but I have a few pointers. Bring a lot of cash for the trip. Each community sells bracelets and necklaces and small denominations might be a good idea if you don't want to buy much. The Huarani guides are amazing. They really share the forest...

I've just come back from 4 days, which I really enjoyed. The most important things are a) the guides and b) the organisation of the trip. My two guides, Xavier and Ewme, were both excellent - knowledgeable, friendly, reliable. Really first class! The trip was very well organised, from the pick up at the Quito hotel to the drop off...

We were the group that almost didn't get there! There had been an unusual amount of rain in the area during our time in Ecuador, and although we got on our little plane and flew right over the landing strip, locally it was too wet there to land. We landed back in Shell and our guide, Santiago, found us a...

I visited the Huaorani ecolodge in October this year. It is a challenge to get there but absolutely worth your while! A real Amazone experience with the comforts of a very nice accommodation; a nice bed, good food and clean showers. A warm welcome by the staff and the Huaorani communities that support it. I can really recommend it to...

I spent an amazing week in the Amazon. After a bus, plane, and canoe ride, we finally arrived at the lodge. Moi, the leader of the Huaorani tribe served as our personal tour guide for the week. And what's more amazing was that six months before the trip, I took a Democracy and Democratization class that focused on the Huaorani...

I recently returned from a 4 day trip to this lodge, and had a wonderful time. There are some things that I wish had gone better, but overall everything was excellent. Previous reviews do a good job of summarizing the experience, so this is an attempt to try to add a few of my own thoughts. If you want a...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Stay in an eco-lodge situated at the headwaters of the Amazon and run by the Huaorani, one of the most isolated ethnic groups on earth: first contacted by the outside world only 55 years ago, they speak a language that is unrelated to any other. You’ll learn to use a blowgun, hear their leader relate the tribe’s fight against oil exploration, and take a two-day meander down the Shiripuno River in kayaks, watching for tropical birds and monkeys.Highly Commended -The Virgin Holidays Responsible Travel Award 2009 and 2010Best Company in Innovation 2010 - LATATrips of a Lifetime award by Travel & Leisure 2010Best Sustainable Tourism Project 2008 and 2009 - LATABest Adventure Travel Companies on Earth by National Geographic 2009 ... more   less

“All the rooms are good rooms, and are assigned before you arrive. There are only 5 lodges, with the first and fifth a bit more apart from the middle ones. The 5th one is nearest the dining lodge and hammock hut.”

“We had cabin 4, which was fine. The only other guests there had lodge 5, which they charmingly referred to as 'le cabin d'amour'. It was closer to the river and the trees. They had some interesting evening guests which the staff helped guide on their way. Just remember to check your shoes, shake your clothes and check your bed. Or use another cabin,”
