Depending on your arrival time at the lodge you can take an optional excursion or spend the afternoon at the pool. The optional excursions are a horseback ride through the jungle, a hike to discover the flora or a chocolate workshop (please let us know if you wish to reserve this program when booking). In the evening you will enjoy a 3-course gourmet menu.

Today you have the choice between two itineraries: Option 1: Jungle hike – Animal rescue station – Indigenous community In the morning you will visit the local market in the provincial capital Tena before you will go on a motorized canoe trip on the Rio Napo and do an educational hike of about 2 hours through the rainforest. You will reach the animal sanctuary “amaZOOnico” with its more than 500 animals. Afterwards you will visit a small indigenous community and immerse yourself in their everyday life for an afternoon! Option 2: Parrot lick – indigenous community – jungle hike Today we start before sunrise to the parrot lick to watch birds. Afterwards you will drive to the community of Santa Barbara where you will immerse yourself in the culture of the indigenous families and share a unique jungle buffet with them. Afterwards you will go for a hike to explore the flora of the jungle before you can enjoy a typical “almuerzo” lunch in the small jungle town of Misahualli where you can watch capuchin monkeys.

In the morning you will be picked up to go rafting. The course corresponds to a level of 3/3+ and is suitable for beginners as well as advanced rafters. If you are travelling with children, you can also raft on another river, which corresponds to a level of 2/3. Lunch is a picnic on the riverbank before returning to the lodge.

Today your time at the Hakuna Matata Lodge ends. You have the option to take part in a chocolate workshop or finish the last hours at the pool before you start your way back to Quito or Baños.
