Our thanks to our friends

Akangau Jungle Expeditions has been possible due to the help of many friends from home and abroad.  They have volunteered their time and contributed ideas to make Akangau Jungle Expeditions what it is today – a tour company in the heart of the Amazon providing authentic jungle tours that encompass many aspects of the Kichwa culture from both the past and present.
