Holiday review by Patrick Wheeler

Date of trip: 09/10/2011
Number of people: 2
Country: Ecuador

Overall level of Satisfaction

Tribes Overall: "The whole rainforest experience was for us memorable."
Tribes Service: "Excellent"
Guides: "Good"
Social & Environmental Responsibility: "See under 'anything else'"


Hacienda Cusin
A good place for civilized and tasteful R&R
Sacha Lodge
This is the comfortable way to see the forest and the wildlife and suitable for anyone interested. Our guide told us that there was still a small percentage of people who were shocked by the experience (i.e. armchair or beach tourists) and were thus cross with themselves for not doing their research properly and, unbelievably, even with the lodge! For anyone with the remotest interest in wildlife and the natural world the experience is incredible, although the clay lick can be a disappointment if one misses the parrots. The Kapok tower and the canopy walk are wonderful for sounds, bird life and general views.
