When you have paid Ecuador a visit as a tourist, chances are very high that the scenes of bird watching and animal viewing that you have always heard of are what have brought you to this country. The many beaches and the Amazon cruise that attracts many are all enjoyable by some. But for you, you just want to get the best of the Ecuador jungle, especially around the Napo River. So many animals have the Napo remote jungle as their home. These animals range from amphibians, insects, reptiles, mammals and birds among others. You will also be able to meet indigenous rainforest people here.
In case you want to enjoy the full package of your trip to these remote areas of the country, you need to get the best lodges in these places. Remember that your visit to this place is to have an observation of most of the creatures possible and their behaviours. That’s why you need a lodge that will allow you to have an observation of the behaviours of animals even from the window of your room. These lodges are always located very close to the Napo River and are of different designs. We have some which have used only modern designs while some few are thatched to resemble the area. The most important factor that might have bothered you is comfort. Most of these lodges are very comfortable in deed and are amongst the top Ecuador places to visit.
Some of the two most popular include the Napo Wildlife centre and the Sani Lodge among others. Within these lodges and those that you may want to stay in while in your bird watching expedition, you will enjoy the luxury that you never expected to get here. The Napo Wildlife Centre is located in the Yasuni National Park being situated close to Anangucocha Lake. You will need to board a flight to Coca if you want to get access to this lodge. Its position makes it to b e very safe from intruders and criminals so you can be sure that you are safe in your room. The hotel cum lodge has a dining hall, ten luxury cabanas, a well stocked bar and a library.
A typical lodge in the jungle needs to have a tower that will aid you in bird viewing, one factor that Napo Wildlife Centre has truly put in place. It has a 50 foot tower that aids visitors in bird viewing. While in the jungle lodges that have viewing facilities, be sure of viewing Howler monkeys, tanagers, Blue and Yellow Macaws, Long tailed Potoo, Crested Owl, Green Ibis, Capped Heron among other animals and birds.
Ensure that you do not just book a lodge without the advice of operators since they are the ones who know the lodge that will suit your needs and pockets. Thanks to Reach Ecuador for their research for this blog post.
