This Yasuni Rainforest Tour will take you to a remote region on the Shiripuno River of the Yasuni Amazon, one of the most untouched and pristine regions of South Americas Amazon rainforest.
The lodge sits within the United Nations protected Yasuni Biosphere Reserve, which has the highest concentration of floral and faunal species anywhere in the world.
The biodiversity in this reserve is unique due to the geographic and warm climate conditions during the Pleistocene era which made Yasuní became a hotspot of biodiversity and animal migration, greatly contributed to the propagation of the rest of the Amazon Basin, and is one of the few places on the planet distinguished as a Pleistocene Refuge Area — an area in which numerous species survived extinction during periods of dramatic climate change.
The Yasuni Jungle Lodge is located along the Shiripuno River, within the Huaorani Reserve; the community of Neoneno has a legal agreement with Shiripuno Tour Operator to run tourist activities inside the Huaorani Reserve.
The Yasuni Lodge had created job opportunities for the Huaorani People and also provides free transportation to all the community members, medicine on emergencies and educational materials for the local school

We are so happy we contacted Ecuador Eco Adventure Tours for assistance with our desire to see the ‘real’ jungle. Wlady helped us so much before we arrived to ensure that we were 100% happy with the tour he had arranged.
I couldn’t recommend the trip to Shiripuno Lodge highly enough – it was the trip of a lifetime. Our guides and the setting of the lodge, along with the great food will stay in our memory forever. You can really feel that Yasuni National Park is one of the most bio-diverse places on the planet.
Thank you Wlady – and I hope that next time we come we can explore more of Ecuador with Ecuador Eco Adventures
