While travelling through Ecuador in 2006, I took an amazing 3 day jungle trip.
The adventure began with a bus journey which began in Quito at 8pm and finished at 9am the next day at the gates of Cuyabeno Wildlife Reserve.
Our guide Christian from the Cuyabeno River Lodge (booked through Samona Expeditions) brought us the rest of the way by boat.
Along with ourselves and our luggage, he also had collected some supplies for the kitchen! The accommodation was authentic and very different to what I am used to!
Each night we were brought on a Night Walk. We walked as quietly as we could through the jungle and of course no torches allowed!
Most of my pictures are from the morning walks and the daily boat trips. We spotted monkeys, Golden Pendulum birds, parrots, ants, monkey combs, lots of different plants, seeds, tracks (of animals), flowers, vines, piranha to name but a few.
