Kapawi Lodge


4 days / 3 nights from € 999 pp

Visit a special kind of eco-tourism project that is being implemented in cooperation with the Achuar indigenous tribe. The Kapawi Nature Reserve has set itself the task of integrating the Achuars into ecotourism while preserving the area's cultural heritage and biodiversity. The long-term goal is for the Achuar Indians to continue running the Kapawi Lodge on their own responsibility from 2011 onwards. Before the start of this project, most of the Achuars in this community earned their living from cattle and agriculture (and the associated slash and burn). Today over 50 Achuar Indians are already involved in the eco-project and the number is increasing.
A flight of approx. 90 minutes takes you from Quito to the southeast of Ecuador, to Guayusentsa. From there it is about two hours by motorboat on the Rio Capahuari before you reach the Achuar area, where the Kapawi project is located. The Kapawi Lodge has 20 quite comfortable bungalows, equipped with private bath / shower and terrace. The entire lodge is built in the typical Achuar style without a single metal nail. Solar energy provides electricity.
