Sani Lodge

Sani Lodge

Deep within the Ecuadorian Amazon you will find a mysterious lake called Challuacocha, where floating water hyacinths and grasses obscure the shores. Float here for a while, scanning the horizon and you would probably notice the yellow banded chest of an Aracari or hear the hoarse whisper of the Hoatzin. Come to Challuacocha and feel the mystery. Come to Challuacocha and experience the world of Sani Lodge.

To the north of Challuacocha lies the Cuyabeno Reserve and along the southern border stretches the vast Yasuni National Park. In the corridor between, located on 40,000 hectares (100,000 acres) of untouched rainforest lies Sani Lodge, a unique Ecuador ecolodge. Here, the biodiversity will amaze you! On your adventure, you will walk through a pristine rainforest gallery that is home to 1,500 species of trees, hundreds of climbing vines, and exotic flowers, as well as 550 species of tropical birds, 13 species of monkeys and 1,000 species of beautiful butterflies.

Sani Lodge is truly a one of a kind Ecuador eco-lodge dedicated to ecotourism, environmental conservation, and community projects in the Amazon rainforest. Sani Lodge is owned and operated by members of the Sani community, meaning that with their extensive knowledge of the Amazon wildlife and biodiversity they can give the guests of Sani Lodge the true experience of the Ecuadorian Amazon jungle. In addition to providing excellent service to its guests, Sani Lodge participates in community ecotourism - profits from the jungle lodge are reinvested into the community, improving the lives of all who live there.

General Wildlife

According to a recent assessment by a leading group of biologists the Rainforest around Sani Lodge in North Eastern Ecuador is the most biologically diverse locality in the world. (Yasuni Day, 2008).

For example… 
2,274 species of trees and bushes have been identified, more than any other area ever studied. 644 species of trees in only one hectare (2.47 acres) have been documented, which is almost as many species of trees as all of the United States and Canada combined! This is also a world record. Over 550 bird species are on the Sani Bird List making it one of the highest lists in the world. 
80 species of bats, making our area the second highest number ever registered.

105 species of amphibians

83 of reptiles which appears to make our area the most diverse ever studied.

64 species of social sting-less bees, also a world record in this group. 100,000 species of insects per hectare, again the greatest number of species of any place ever studied.

Not only does Sani’s surrounding forests provide a habitat for a tremendous variety of organisms but is also home to many threatened or naturally rare species such as Jaguar, 13 species of primates, Short-eared Dog, Brazilian Tapir, 2 species of peccary, Harpy Eagle, Black Caiman, Amazonian Manatee among others.

Now, having said all this, it should be stated that our wildlife is just that… wild. We do not feed or bait any animals so this means that there is definitely an element of luck or chance in what any given guest may see. Being quiet and stealthy, as well as maintaining small groups certainly helps, but there are no guarantees… however most groups see a few species of monkeys, toucans, Black Caiman (up to 3.5 to 4 meters), macaws, parrots, many types of insects, frogs, lizards and an incredible variety of birds. Everything else varies widely from group to group.
