SACHA LODGE

SACHA LODGE is so seamlessly blended into the wildlife environ​ment that it is just another part of the forest. Watch as the giant otters dive and call to each other while you eat breakfast and when you return to your room, watch the alligators slide under the platforms. Listen to the monkeys chattering outside your balcony; and even the giant sloths that hang out in the trees by the cabins.

The accommodation in Sacha Lodge combines the highest comfort for the traveler with the preservation of the environment and the habitat of the rainforest. With high thatched roofs and private shaded terraces with hammocks, all of our cabins are built with traditional materials, subtly immersed in the lush surroundings. Each of the 26 cabins, which include singles, doubles, three family cabins and (on request) triple accommodations, offer a spacious private bathroom with a hot water shower. Some of which even feature floor to ceiling windows for an immersive jungle shower experience! All cabins are screened against insects and contain ceiling fans above the comfortable beds.

Imagine walking across a suspended bridge above the rainforest canopy, paddling through streams in search of monkeys and river otters, climbing to the top of a giant ceibo tree, or swimming in a black water lagoon. , threading their way through the trees in search of the world's smallest monkey‚ You'll find these exclusive experiences and many more, only within Sacha Lodge, our 5,000-acre (2,000-hectare) ecological reserve in the Ecuadorian Amazon.

SACHA LODGE PROGRAM

4 DAYS / 3 NIGHTS

BOOK NOW
SAMPLE OF A DAY:

After making your reservation, Sacha Lodge will book your flight from Quito the Coca. From the moment you set foot at Quito airport you will be in the safe hands of one of our bilingual team members, and will be guided all the way to the Lodge.

After arriving at Sacha Lodge around lunchtime and meeting your guide – who stays with you for the entirety of your trip – you will take your first excursion into the forest. Once you have returned and had dinner, you will set out for your first nighttime adventure.

A typical day at Sacha begins at sunrise or earlier, taking advantage of the cool morning hours when the rainforest’s animals are most active.

Each group agrees on a wake-up time, when their guide will knock on their door for a rude awakening! Breakfast will begin half an hour after that.

Wherever the destination, our excursions proceed slowly in order to appreciate the fascinating details that our guides point out around you.

You might begin the day paddling dugout canoes along tannin-rich black-water creeks and lakes, where luxuriant lianas, orchids, bromeliads and palm trees thrive, always with the possibility of spotting animals, from the tiny pygmy marmoset to the feared ocelot or puma. Then, you could board the motorized canoe for a short ride along the Napo River to visit the Providencia Community of Yasuní, learning about their jungle way of life and testing out their cooking techniques, stopping to watch the parrot disco of the clay lick along the way.

You will return to the Lodge in the late morning, in time for a 1PM lunch. In the time between lunch and your afternoon adventure, you are free to enjoy the Lodge, lounging on sun chairs with a book on the Balsa, or cooling off in the Lake Pool. Activities begin again between 3:00PM and 4:30PM and often continue into the evening, when the nocturnal insect and frog chorus begins. An afternoon excursion might see you trekking through pristine Terra Firme forest, where 150-foot kapok trees tower above and roots form huge buttresses to give trees support, your guide pointing out the crest owl territory and calling to the howler monkeys. You could then climb 94 feet (30 meters) up to the Canopy Walk, a 940-foot (275-meter) bridge across the treetops from where you can spot dozens of animals and birds.

Days at Sacha Lodge do not end with the fading of the light, or even with dinner. Night walks and canoe trips, with the aid of flashlights, often reveal creatures seldom seen during daylight. Caimans (of the alligator family) and giant insects rule the jungle after sunset. Do you dare search for them?

*Please note: activities are subject to weather, though Forest Walks, the Kapok Tower, and Canopy Walk are the keystones of the Sacha Lodge experience.

What to bring?

Lightweight pants and long sleeved cotton shirts are ideal for walks in the forest. However, if you are more comfortable wearing short sleeves, remember that exposed skin may need a light dousing with insect repellant.


During the rain, full waterproof clothing can be uncomfortable as it often gets you wet with sweat instead of water, but rain ponchos are recommendable for tropical cloudbursts. Plenty of ponchos are available at no charge if you do not have your own, and we also supply rubber boots up to men’s size 14 for walks in the forest interior.


Comfortable shoes (or sandals), shorts and t-shirts are fine for walking on boardwalks and around the Lodge during meals and free time. And don’t forget your bathing suit!
