Dragonfly Rainforest Observation

We're delighted to share with you the exciting news that Mashpi Lodge's "Dragonfly" is ready to take flight. 

Dragonfly Observation Gondola - Mashpi Lodge, EcuadorThe dream of Alfred Russel Wallace - the 19th-century naturalist and explorer, best known for proposing a theory of natural selection in parallel with Charles Darwin - of "sailing gently in a balloon over the undulating flowery surface" to enjoy "the whole glory of these forests" is realized with our innovative glide through the Mashpi Reserve. 
 

The new highlight of any trip to Mashpi, the Dragonfly travels gently, slowly and almost silently along a cable, sometimes below the canopy, sometimes through it, and also far above it, emulating the birds, butterflies and dragonflies that flit and flutter through our protected reserve's magical ecosystem. 
 

Dragonfly Rainforest Observation Gondola - Mashpi Lodge, EcuadorRiding in the company of our expert guides, it's a unique way to experience the world from a new perspective, spotting birds and animals in the trees, wafting over rivers and waterfalls, slipping in and out of misty clouds, taking in the stunning views of a green universe...
 

The addition of the Dragonfly to our activities in Mashpi enhances the experiences we can offer guests with a new, exciting dimension: we combine the ride with walks in the forest and swims in the waterfalls; we can offer explorations of more remote areas within our 1,300-hectare Reserve; and it's the perfect solution for guests who would rather float through the air than trek along the forest paths. Now we can offer the best of all worlds! 
 

Dragonfly 2-km rainforest observation system - Mashpi Lodge, EcuadorThe Dragonfly consists of an innovative, custom-designed, 2-kilometre (1.2-mile) cable system stretched between two stations, suspended across six towers. We have installed an intermediate station half-way, which we use as an additional embarkation and disembarkation point. 
 

Our four, specially-designed metallic 'gondolas' travel continuously along the cables, each carrying four guests plus their guide. It takes about 40 minutes to ride from the Orchid Station to the Cock-of-the-Rock Station. The fascinating round-trip experience lasts for approximately two hours.
