Sacha Amazon Rainforest Lodge
Easy/Moderate / 5 days from Quito, Ecuador
Explore Ecuador's Amazon rainforest at Sacha Amazon rainforest lodge and enjoy a wildlife holiday full of adventure and comfort.
Sacha Lodge is the Quichua Indian word to mean 'forest' and this is a trip into beautiful Amazonian canopy.
The area is replete with animals, from monkeys to birds, to insects and bats, and the native staff work alongside guides to preserve nature.
Sacha's famous canopy walkway takes you to the heights that the sloths live at, and gives magnificent views of birds atop 30m trees as you stand over the forest.
The wooden tower is something not to be missed. You watch as the sunset urges the animals, from weaver birds, toucans and monkeys, to bed down for the night.
Explore the rainforest
Perched on the black waters of Lake Pilchicocha, Sacha has relatively few mosquitoes and a very high standard of room and bathroom.
The butterfly farm may give you the chance to see a butterfly leaving its cacoon as well as spot tarantulas, and the clay like in full display is a highlight for all.
In the rainforest, keep your eyes peeled for monkeys, birds, insects and more bigger animals like jaguar, puma, tapir and giant anteater.
If you like wildlife, try the Galapagos Islands or, if looking for a more active holiday, a trek.

Both Amazon rainforest and Galapagos were excellent.
Everything was perfectly organised. All parts of the trip fully in line with the itinerary.
Local representatives were available at the meeting points, they organised the documentation, the transport, everything.
Frankly speaking, I was a bit worried due to the lack of experience, but everything worked out well.
No low points.
Everything was excellent, the guides were very professional and helpful.
Accomodation was also well selected, fully in line with the expectations.
Next time, we will spend more time in Ecuador and visit other parts of this fascinating country.Zsolt Vuleta, Hungary, Feb 2015
A lovely 3 nights spent here.
A beautiful environment, friendly and welcoming staff and the accommodation was a perfect amount of rustic with clean and tidy rooms, flushing toilet and perfect shower.
Our guides were great, loved how they gave us information but gave us the time to think about it, experience it and then if necessary come back and ask more questions.Jen Gibbons, Qatar, July 2015
