We spent lot of time in boats and canoes touring with highly knowledgeable guides. The staff is outstanding. All of them. They work hard to make sure you see all the wonders and...

I don’t normally do reviews but NWC was such a pleasure I had to. Throughout my entire time there, the staff were polite and warm and gracious, dedicated to giving us first class treatment and showing us the beautiful environment. The lodge is beautiful, everything is made of gorgeous wood, beautifully carved. The cabins are lovely and comfortable, even without...

A friend and I stayed here for 4 nights. The whole centre is just amazing, each room or suite is in a separate thatched 'hut' and our room was excellent, very clean and well serviced throughout. Food was excellent. The long journey to reach the lodge shows just how remote it is and it is well worth the trip. We...

Just look at the pics of these huts! They are so very charming. A hot tub on the back veranda! Not air conditioned but a good sturdy fan running over the mosquito net over the bed. This may be a little rough for some, but paradise for us. The staff was so helpful and knowledgeable. Our guide was unbelievable in...

Remote, in the heart of the forest is a wonder to behold. Situated on on the banks of the Kichwan hunting grounds one awakes in 5 star comfort to the eerie sound of the "Red Backed Howlers"(amonkey)... a Caiman's surge in the dark waters and a friendly warm wake-up call. Fireflies a-twinkle, oars dipping, we slide through dark piranha infested...

You know a place is remote enough to see amazing wildlife when you have to travel 2 hours by motor canoe and 2 hours by paddle canoe from the closest town! But don't let the travel detour you.

I've wanted to see the Amazon in person since I was a little girl, so when I booked this trip, my expectations were very high. Even still, I was not prepared for just how nice this lodge is. It's the only thing as far as you can see (which from the lodge's observation tower, is very far indeed), and despite...
