Sacha Lodge is 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.

The lodging at Sacha was carefully designed to offer comfort to the traveler yet preserve the environment and rainforest ambience. Each of the 26 cabins, with high thatched roofs and private shaded terraces, 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!

Guests may also enjoy a raised lookout above our main bar and lounge, which offers a scenic view of Pilchicocha Lake and excellent opportunities to birdwatch.

Wildlife includes 8 species of monkeys, 60 species of mammals including sloths, reptiles like caymans, exotic frogs, over 900 species of birds (parrots, toucans, hummingbirds, tanagers, hawks and oropendolas, etc.), and butterflies. You will have a morning, afternoon, and night excursions each day.

Tours start every day except Sunday.
