Why Choose Mandaripanga?

AN AMAZON ECO LODGE EXPERIENCE

A REMOTE CAMP INSIDE THE YASUNI NATIONAL PARK

One of the only tourist facilities located within the boundaries of Ecuador's Yasuni National park, our camp is completely isolated from other lodges in a nearly untouched zone of rainforest in one of the most biodiverse regions on the planet.

COMFORTABLE AMAZON JUNGLE CAMPING

Connect with the jungle in a way not possible in a traditional lodge; experience the sounds of the birds, animals, and rivers and sense your surroundings in your sheltered, elevated comfortable tent, complete with a mattress and bedding.

DIRECT BENEFITS TO THE KICHWA COMMUNITY

Your visit to our camp makes an important contribution to improving the quality of life for the people of the Mandari Panga community, and is important to help protect the amazing diversity of life in the Yasuni region of the Ecuadorian Amazon.

Your Next Journey In The Amazon Rainforest...

Adventure Experience

This itinerary covers more experiences; if you are looking for a complete amazon adventure, this is for you. This tour combines hiking with kayaking, and two nights camping in the deep jungle: one night deep into the forest and the other on a river beach. Even though there are no facilities those nights, you will have the comfort of tents, mattresses, pillow, a cook, and a private canoe during these days. This is a tour like no other, with more chances to see wildlife and to feel the amazon.

Kayak

amazon jungle kayak

The Tiputini river crosses from west to east the national park on its north side. This intricate river is perfect for exploring the deepness of the jungle. Kayaking might be the best way to see wildlife inside the national park as we do not make noise when going downriver. Some groups have been lucky to see pink river dolphins, giant otters, and tapirs crossing the river while kayaking. This amazon kayak tour will blow your mind.
