The Waorani are an indigenous tribe in Ecuador that first made contact with Christian missionaries in the mid 1950’s. They are in an area known as Menpare, 2 hours from Tena via private car. This area is very secluded, which makes it a great location to see wildlife and especially exotic birds. This is also an area where there is oil exploration and extraction. It is interesting to bear witness to the issues that we often talk about affecting the Amazon.
