Our commitment to responsible and ecological tourism

Our Lodge follows strict ecological standards for protected areas, this is the most important thing for us.  Besides in addition to that all wastewater is carefully processed and filtered to avoid contaminating the water and soil systems. As a result the jungle is kept clean.  Certainly we will continue with our commitment to nature.

In addition the lodge obtains its energy exclusively from clean energy through solar panels. So each room is equipped with sunlight and a 110V electrical outlet. Therefore all our waste material is separated and recycled as much as possible.

Finally we maintain a strong and friendly relationship with members of the indigenous community and support their active involvement in tourism. Hence they receive economic income through their work as paddling aids, motor canoe drivers, kitchen helpers and camp administrators with us.
