Minga Lodge - Day 1
Day 1: Travelling by boat down the Napo River to Minga Lodge sets the tone for your Amazonian experience, and provides an early opportunity to discover more about life on the banks of the river.
Taking this traditional form of transport is a perfect introduction to the Kichwa community, and a gentle arrival into this peaceful environment. After settling into your cabin you will have the chance to learn more about the Me to We philosophy of sustainable development and the five pillars of impact - women's development, education, water, health and food - that form the backbone of their projects. Now is also the time to pick up a few words of Spanish that will come in useful over the next few days, as well as meeting fellow guests.
Dinner overlooking the Napo River is a highlight of a stay at Minga Lodge, with jungle sounds, delicious Ecuadorian cuisine and a chance to meet fellow guests. Follow this with a walk through the jungle with a guide who can point out the vast diversity of life hosted by the lush surrounds, including tree snakes, owls and frogs.
