The Ecuadorian Amazon may seem like a world away, but Sacha Lodge is easily accessible from Quito. After a short 25-minute flight from Quito and a two-hour ride on the Napo River in a motorized canoe leaving civilization far behind, by lunchtime, you will be in a hammock relaxing or maybe listening to the chatter of tamarind monkeys. Along the way, you may glace your sight on the numerous shorebirds, including herons, kingfishers, spoonbills, and ospreys. Adventure beckons from the treetops, the jungle floor, the water, and even from the sky.
The lodging at Sacha was carefully designed to offer comfort to travelers while preserving the environment and the rainforest environment. A typical day in Sacha begins at dawn or earlier, in order to take advantage of the cool morning hours when the rainforest animals are most active.
Paddle canoes along tannin-rich black-water streams and lakes, where lush lianas, orchids, bromeliads, and palm trees grow. And enjoy a spectacular setting on the inland lake of Pilchecocha, a short hike, and a canoe ride from the Río Napo.
Imagine walking across a bridge suspended over the rainforest canopy, paddling through creeks in search of monkeys and river otters, climbing to the very top of a giant kapok tree, or swimming in a black-water lake, threading your way through trees in search of the world’s tiniest monkeys. Activities are spread over a wide area and allow you to explore several but equally fascinating habitats.
You’ll find these exclusive experiences, plus many more, within its pristine 5,000-acre (2,000-hectare) ecological reserve in the Ecuadorian Amazon. It is a world of wildlife in the heart of the animal kingdom, home to eight species of monkeys, 50 species of bats, anteaters, three-toed sloths, ocelots, and birds with more colors than you could ever imagine.
