Huaorani EcoLodge

The Huaorani Lodge is an Amazon rain forest lodge at the headwaters of the Amazon in Yasuni National Park in Ecuador. The 5-cabin lodge is the result of an innovative partnership promoting a new form of ecologically-friendly development sensitive to Huaorani traditions, a facility owned by the Huaorani and co-managed by an Ecuadorian owned tourism company. A tourism association was formed by the five communities involved in the project; community members were trained and plans made to produce and sell crafts. After consultations a site was chosen and a lodge planned and built; it opened in January 2008. The lodge is accessed by a 45 minute flight followed by a short trip in a dugout canoe. The Huaorani are among the most remote peoples of the world.
