Sacha Lodge found within a 5000 acre private ecological reserve in Ecuador´s Amazon region an accessible yet pristine rainforest sanctuary where you and your family may enjoy a true jungle adventure in safety and comfort. Located in the heart of this wilderness, 50 miles down the Napo River from Coca. Sacha Lodge has 26 rooms, single, double and (upon request) triple accommodations. All cabins have high thatched roofs and private shaded terraces with hammocks, constructed with traditional materials. Each room provides a private bathroom with flushing toilet, hot shower, ceiling fans and two comfortable double beds and all cabins are screened against insects.
Sacha Lodge's guests are divided into small groups for activities, each of which are led by not one but two guides. One is a native guide, raised in the area and with expert knowledge of the rainforest's medicinal and other useful plants. This guide will often share stories from local culture, and lead the way with accustomed eyes that are incredible for spotting the jungle's hidden creatures. The second guide to accompany each group is a bilingual naturalist, who has been educated in the biology and ecology of the rainforest. Our naturalists come from different countries and backgrounds, and they will translate for the native guides as well as share their own scientific knowledge about any plants and animals you may encounter.
For birdwatchers, we also provide bird specialist guides upon request. These guides know the best spots for the hard-to-find species, and can easily identify species by both sight and sound. If ornithology is to be the focus of your trip, please be sure to
The lodging at Sacha was carefully designed to offer comfort to the traveler yet preserve the environment and rainforest ambience. All of our cabins, with high thatched roofs and private shaded terraces, are constructed with traditional materials and nestle well concealed into the lush surroundings. Each of 26 the rooms, which include single, double and (upon request) triple accommodations, provides a private bathroom with flushing toilet and hot shower. All cabins are screened against insects, and contain ceiling fans above two comfortable double beds. During free time, visitors may overlook the jungle from hammocks and often report seeing wild fauna such as toucans, agoutis and monkeys right from their own cabin! In your shower you will find dispensers of biodegradable soap and shampoo, please use these to lessen your impact on this sensitive environment.
