Sacha Lodge is in the heart of Ecuador's Amazon Basin on the north bank of the Napo River. The lodge is a haven for nature lovers, birdwatchers, scientists and adventure seekers providing comfortable accommodation, good meals and knowledgeable naturalist guides. A particular feature of the lodge are the excellent canopy attractions which include a 275-metre long canopy walkway 30 metres above the rainforest floor, and a 43-metre observation tower.

Each of the 26 rooms is constructed from traditional materials and has a private shaded terrace with hammocks. Rooms are fully screened against mosquitoes and have private bathrooms with a flushing toilet and hot shower. Ceiling fans provide relief from the heat of the rainforest.

There is a dining area and bar, with an observation platform providing views across Pilchicocha Lake, and an al freso restaurant. The food served is good and wholesome with a mixture of Ecuadorian and international cuisine, and the cooks are used to providing vegetarian meals. Barbecues are also often served from the outdoor bar and dining platform right on the edge of the lake.

The lodge is in an area rich in animal and bird life. you will explore in small groups led by 2 expert guides. As well as the canopy activities, you can follow numerous trails in the forest, canoe in lakes and creeks, go birdwatching and visit the lodge's butterfly house.

NEW (updated October 2017): A family of giant river otters are now resident in the lake by the camp. They had pups in 2017 so hopefully they will be staying around!
