About Sani Lodge

The Amazon is one of the most magnificent and mysterious places on Earth, and home to the most biodiverse areas. An Ecuador Amazon tour will offer a unique experience through the seemingly endless Amazon Rainforest, the largest in the world, comprising a myriad of ecosystems, as 10% of the planet’s plant and animal species can be found here. It is a whole new world just waiting to be explored.

Within this magnificent region, in the northern side of Ecuador, there is the Yasuní National Park, a vibrant tropical rainforest considered to be the world’s most biodiverse place. At the crossroads between the Amazon, the Equator and the Andes, it is home to more the 4,000 plant species, 200 mammals and also indigenous tribes.

In the intermediate corridor between Yasuní National Park and Cuyabeno Reserve, the second largest wildlife reserve in Ecuador lying at the foothills of the Andes, is located Sani Lodge, a unique place in the Ecuadorian Amazon forest, as it is the only eco-lodge in Ecuador 100% owned and operated by the indigenous Kichwa community of Sani Isla. Surrounded by 103,784 acres of untouched and pristine forest, Sani Lodge Ecuador does not only immerse its guests in the fascinating Amazon Rainforest and its wildlife, they also make them a part of their community, sharing with them their culture and their way of life.

When visiting Sani Lodge Ecuador, guests will hike through the forest that encompasses over 2,000 species of plants and an abundance of wildlife, including 550 different species of tropical birds, which can only be found in this region, 1,000 species of butterflies, 13 species of primates and more than 80 species of reptiles, to name just some of them. For bird watchers, there’s a 100ft high birdwatching tower that’s nestled between an equally tall kapok tree, which is just a canoe ride away from Sani Lodge. With the abundance of bird species in the area, going up the birdwatching tower alone makes the whole trip totally worth it.

There are other activities like canoeing, visiting the Yasuni butterfly Garden, or sport fishing that guests can enjoy. All this together makes Sani Lodge the top choice for vacationers looking for the ultimate eco-tourism experience.
