    We had a terrific time at Napo Wildlife centre. Our native guide and naturist guide were experienced and knowledgeable. The species we have seen were so many...i could not have wished for more. The Napo team was fantastic and they work very hard to make the guests experience one to remember.

    We stayed at the Napo Wildlife Center in September and had a wonderful experience. We stayed for four days and were fortunate enough to see 51 species of birds, 5 different species of monkeys and a lot of other wildlife. The guides we had were great and very knowledgeable about the area and the Amazon jungle. The rest of the staff was also very friendly and helpful. The food we had was excellent. If you are visiting Ecuador, this is an excellent adventure to take.

    Room Tip: They have seperate cabins for visitors and are all very nice

    We had a fantastic time at the Napo Wildlife Center. Saw a lot of birds. The food and service were excellent. Our guide LENA was super, she knows the birds, the environment, speaks perfect English, a great naturalist.

    Definitively the highlight of our trip to Ecuador. I wish we could come back and stay longer.

    We visited Napo Wildlife Center in October, 2017. Our guide was Delfin assisted by Fausto and Oscar. The Napo website has detailed itineraries for both the 4 day and 5 day stays so I won’t get into detail on where we went. We were on the five day itinerary and it was followed pretty closely although not in the same order as on the website. The way Napo usually works is you are grouped with people having the same night stay as you and you have the same guide and assistants the entire time. You also eat as a group.
    Delfin was an amazing guide. His ability to spot wildlife both up close and at far distances was amazing. Fausto also assisted in spotting wildlife both on the canoes and walks.
    We saw a wide variety of wildlife, birds and insects. Delfin took his time to explain the species and give us time for photos.
    We were very lucky on timing as we only got rained on one afternoon after visiting the parrot clay licks an of service as I didn’t request it-he came to me.d then on the return trip to Coca. Some of the groups arriving after us were not so lucky.
    The highlight was probably the visit to the clay licks. Again, we were very fortunate when we came to the first one there were no parrots or parakeets but you could hear them so you knew they were nearby. Then they came in great numbers as we watched. At the second clay lick we again saw great numbers of parrots and parakeets. Mother Nature can be fickle though-the group from Napo that went to the clay licks the next day saw nothing! Unfortunate for them but they went back the next day.
    One our last full day we went up to the tower which is across the lake. Saw an amazing variety of wildlife including monkeys and many different birds. Delfin was able to take pictures for us using our cameras through his scope which can out great.
    On our last night we went on a night walk which was very interesting. Even in the dark Delfin was able to spot things such as frogs, toads, insects!
    We received great service at Napo both from our guides and the staff. Since there is no air conditioning and we don’t do well in high heat/humidity we asked for a fan for our room in addition to the ceiling fan. One was brought promptly which helped a lot.
    Napo is much deeper into the amazon than most, if not all, of the other camps. From Coca it is a 2.5 hour motorized canoe ride followed by a 2 hour paddled canoe ride. So if you want to be in the middle of nowhere, Napo is the place! They do have wifi at a cost of $10 per device for your entire stay which I felt was very reasonable.
    Delfin heard me talking at our first dinner that I am a very finicky eater and he asked me if the chef could make something special for me. So I had pasta for lunch and dinner for our stay. It shows the level of service as Delfin came to me without my asking.
    We would highly recommend staying at Napo when visiting the Amazon Rainforest.

    We enjoyed a fabulous stay at Napo Wildlife Centre. Plentiful wildlife, wonderful staff and accommodations, and delicious food. Despite being a pair of seniors - and I recovering from knee surgery - husband and I were nonetheless able to enjoy this entire experience. Because I did not want to hold up our whole group be being too slow, and because I knew I would want to linger to take photographs, we made the decision to hire a private guide so that we could go at our own pace. Not necessary for most people of course, but for us it was a great decision! We were well taken care of by our guide - who found animals we never would have spotted, wielded his machete to cut walking poles for us and easily hacked through a fairly large downed tree that was blocking our canoe route - and when our last day came and we STILL hadn't seen parrots at the clay lick (hawks scared them off), he arranged a special early-morning detour to one of them for us, and - SUCCESS! We were thrilled to see the gradual descent of scores of Mealy Amazon parrots to the clay lick. Thanks, NAPO Wildlife Lodge, for an unforgettable experience.

    Room Tip: We asked for, and received, a quiet, lakeside room
