NWC provides a unique glimpse into the very essence of life. It verily teems with life...guided by local guides and naturalists, guests become educated in the ways of the local indigenous peoples and their move from a hunter society to promoting eco tourism and preservation of the rain forest...a grand vacation not tipi be missed...be forewarned...not for the late risers...

This was going to be my first time in Amazon rain forest, and I can't imagine a better place to do this in the Ecuadorian Amazon - NWC made for one of the best wilderness tours ever. I knew I wanted to see the Yasuni area, and I was torn between La Selva and NWC, but I think I made...

My husband and I stayed the minimum time at the Napo Wildlife Center, 3 nights, and wish we could have stayed longer. The Center as you can see from the picture is stunningly beautiful.

We had a wonderful stay at the NWC in November. I can't imagine a better place to experience the Amazon than in the lake and little tributary that we paddled in and around. We saw everything that we came for: four species of monkeys, toucans, caimans, anacondas and more. The sound of the howler monkeys in the morning will stay...

We had an outstanding stay at Napo Wildlife Center. We were very fortunate with the weather and amount of animals we saw, but have to give a lot of credit to our guides who went the extra mile to make our experience truly special. The ride in from Coca is a little disappointing with all the oil activity going on,...
