Amazon Rainforest Camping
Huaorani Tribe Amazon Camping
Join us on an Amazon Rainrorest camping adventure with the Huaorani indigenous tribe. By day we explore the forest and rivers learning about the rainforest with native guides and by night we camp in Huaorani territory inside Yasuni National Park in Ecuador.
Although Otobo´s Amazon Safari wouldn´t qualify as “glamping” maybe we could invent the word “comping” or Comfortable Camping to describe the experience he provides. 3 large covered, raised platforms are cut into the side of a hill and are about a meter above the ground, each with a beautiful view of the surrounding forest.
Each platform has a large tent with 1 or 2 air mattresses with fresh linen and pillows, an invigorating shower, sink and flush toilet.
WHAT MAKES OTOBO'S AMAZON SAFARI SO SPECIAL?
The Yasuni Biosphere Reserve is an incredibly wildlife-rich area and is home to an abundance of macaws, parrots, monkeys… all the highlight species, even Jaguars, tapirs, Giant River Otters and Giant Anteaters are here. Guests often see various species of monkeys, many types of birds, frogs and insects. However, much of what a specific group sees will depend on stealth, perseverance and good old fashioned luck.
Having all excursions into the forest led by Huaorani guides certainly helps our chances of seeing incredible nature. You will visit Clay Licks, float on the river, paddle in remote lakes and walk at night, all with the hope of encountering rare and unique creatures.
