Ecuador wildlife tours and holidays offer Amazon rainforest and cloud forest plus the amazing Galapagos Islands.
Ecuador has some of the best jungle lodges from which you can spot caiman, monkeys, otters and more.
Bird watchers love the cloud forests, where the number of leaves is surpassed only by the beating of wings.
Galapagos Islands are an ideal year-round destination for wildlife lovers, combining scenery with beautiful animals.
The Napo Eco-lodge was very comfortable and extremely well organised.
The rain forest paid its part with good weather and a wide range of sightings including giant otters, nine species of primates, some beautiful birds and butterflies, bats ,caiman, snakes and lizards.
My cameras were running red hot at times.

Although we enjoyed the whole trip if we have to select a highlight it was our visit to the Yasuni National Park. Wildlife watching from the canoe, walking through the rainforest and looking over the forest canopy from the viewing tower were all great experiences and we were amazed by the diversity and visual accessibility of so many plants and some much wildlife.
Napo Wildlife Centre – Such a wonderful location and the fact that it can only be accessed by canoe helps to make it a really special place.
Bellavista – Another room with a view in a great location for bird-watching including from the circular dining room and around the lodge. Staff were friendly and helpful.
All the guides were very knowledgeable and keen to show us their country and its wildlife. They were also happy to talk more generally about other aspects of life in Ecuador which added to the interest of the trip. They were friendly and spoke excellent English.

Both Amazon rainforest and Galapagos were excellent. The boat selection and the cruise itinerary were outstanding.
Everything was perfectly organised. All parts of the trip fully in line with the itinerary. Local representatives were available at the meeting points, they organised the documentation, the transport, everything.
Everything was excellent, the guides were very professional and helpful. Accommodation was also well selected, fully in line with the expectations. Next time, we will spend more time in Ecuador and visit other parts of this fascinating country.

The Kaieteur falls in Guyana are one of the world’s tallest single-drop waterfalls by volume of water. At 226 metres they are almost 5 times higher than the Niagara falls and have an average flow rate of 663 cubic metres per second. They are located in the Kaieteur National Park which is roughly 241 kms south-west of Georgetown within the Pakaraima Mountain Range. They are also totally off the beaten path and unspoilt. This means that you may be one of only a handful of people visiting when you go – unlike the Iguassu or Niagara Falls. Legend …
