When Do You Want To Go?

Rustic and authentic lodge run by the local community and awarded for minimal environmental impact

As a successfully sustainable project, all profits generated by Sani lodge are given back to the local Kichwa community, so by visiting the lodge travellers are directly supporting local education and healthcare. Sani prides itself on being specialists in both ecological and community tourism and giving guests a one of a kind experience. An exciting, three-hour ride down river on a motorized canoe takes guest deep into Ecuador’s pristine rainforest. Sani’s grounds extend into the Yasuni National Park across the other side of the Napo River, meaning guests have the advantage of seeing how species vary on either side of this natural geographical barrier.

Based on individual interests, guests are assigned their own local guide on arrival, who will endeavour to show them everything they can about the local culture and incredible wildlife. Out on the river or in the forest with the naturalist guides it is possible to spot caiman, monkeys, birds, sloths and much more. The lodge’s 37 ft. observation tower offers an incredible perspective of the surrounding biodiversity.

The lodge has ten private cabanas with thatched roofs and bathrooms and four family suites. All rooms have comfortable beds, showers, ceiling fans (operated for a few hours at midday) and screens to protect from insects. In keeping with its eco-friendly operation, lights throughout Sani Lodge are powered by solar technology and water is drawn from a local well. With rooms and communal spaces facing the forest, guests can look forward to waking up to the many peculiar sounds of the rainforest!
