Sani Lodge is an ecolodge in the Ecuadorian Amazon region. It is situated at lower Río Napo in a corridor between Cuyabeno Wildlife Reserve in the north and Yasuni National Park in the south. Sani Lodge is situated about 3h downstream from Coca, but the lodge is not situated near the big Río Napo but at the quiet lagoon Challuacocha. The location by the lagoon is lovely and it is very tranquil.
Sani Lodge is owned and operated by the local Sani Isla community. Many members of the community are employed at the lodge and to give everyone the chance to work here the staff rotates. Profit from the lodge is going back to the community and is used for education, health and different project. For example all medical emergencies for the members are paid for.
The biodiversity around Sani Lodge is big and there are around 1500 species of trees and many climbing vines and flowers. Around 570 species of birds have been recorded and 13 different species of monkeys (we saw five during my visit). During the visit we did many peaceful canoe rides on the lagoon and small streams, and we did many jungle hikes in the rainforest.
When I visited Sani Lodge I stayed at the camping, a cheaper option than the more expensive cabins. It was a very nice experience to sleep in a tent with the sounds of the jungle just outside.
