Day 1
Coca - Napo Territory

A short 30-minute flight takes us to the frontier town of Coca (Francisco de Orellana).

Upon arrival at the Coca Airport you will be welcomed by Napo Wildlife Centre staff who will accompany you to the Francisco de Orellana Port - which is only 5 minutes away from the airport.

Here you will commence you Amazon adventure. At the port you board a motorized canoe moving downstream along the Napo River, the major tributary of the Amazon Rainforest in Ecuador.

During the trip, you will have the chance to see different birds such as kingfishers, herons and more, in addition to the incredible views of the Amazon jungle that opens before your eyes. A boxed lunch will be provided enroute.

After our two-hours ride along the Napo River, you will arrive at the Napo Wildlife Centre dock entrance where you will have a short break to freshen up. From the dock you will continue to the lodge on paddle-canoes as motorized canoes are not permitted within the Napo Territory. This majestic and peaceful dugout canoe ride travels down a narrow stream that leads to the Abangu Lake, where the lodge is located. Late in the afternoon, you will arrive at the Napo Wildlife Center where the staff will welcome you.

Day 2
Coca - Napo Territory

Today's adventure at the Napo Wildlife Center begins early in the morning as you will witness one of the most incredible nature spectacles, the parrot clay licks. It will only take about an hour to get to the first parrot clay lick which is of easy access from the lodge. Once we get there, at about 7:30 or 8:30 am it will take just a few minutes for birds to show up. It is a real spectacle of colors, about 11 species of bird such as parrots, macaws and parakeets visit the clay licks every day to feed with the minerals that are concentrated in the soil.

Later on, we will hike along the forest trail to visit the Kichwa Anangu community to share time with the men, women and children of the community and learn about their every-day-life activities, routines and their ancestral customs and traditions. Then, we will say goodbye to the families and continue our adventure. Later we will go back to the creek and go hiking for 30 minutes throughout a Terra Firme forest until reaching the second parrot clay lick and repeat the experience of seeing a great variety of parrots, parakeets and macaws as you eat a delicious picnic lunch.

Day 3
Coca - Napo Territory

This morning we will depart to the Canopy Observation Tower, a high platform from which you will have amazing views of the jungle. This wooden platform of 36 meters high was built just next to an ancient Kapok tree. To get to the top you have to pass through different levels of the forest. Then, when you are finally there, the immensity and beauty of the Amazon jungle opens before you a sight of indescribable beauty that must be experienced.

Birds that are virtually impossible to see from the jungle floor will pass right by you. Flocks of vibrantly colored tanagers, blue-and-yellow macaws and large toucans fly past in the early mornings and afternoons.

In the afternoon, after lunch at the Napo Wildlife Center, we will go deep into a Terra Firme trail to discover the beautiful and mysterious wildlife that hides in the forest interior. There are great possibilities to see lizards, different species of monkeys such as the endemic Golden Mantle Tamarin monkey, rare and unique insects and even some scary snakes! Also, we will take you to explore the black water Anangu Lake and streams that are home of different species of fish and mammals such as the Giant Otter, a unique specie from the Amazon.
