Amazon Wilderness

This exceptional jungle experience takes you into the very heart of Ecuador’s Amazon Basin. The remote, pristine setting of Sacha Lodge is a haven for nature lovers, birdwatchers, scientists and adventure seekers. The lodge provides quality accommodation, first class meals and expert guides in order for you to fully enjoy the wonders of the tropical rainforest. There is a wide range of activities to pick from including jungle walks, dugout canoe safaris and canopy walks, whilst a real highlight is the camouflaged, 43-metre high observation tower. This is the Amazon at its very best!

Yellow Fever Certificate
Please note, as of 1st March 2008 it is necessary for all travellers booked on this trip to be vaccinated against yellow fever (vaccinations are good for 10 years) and to carry their yellow fever certificate with them. Even though there hasn’t been any case of yellow fever in Ecuador in the last 20 years, the local authorities are taking steps to ensure that no outbreaks occur in this sensitive region. All travellers should be vaccinated against yellow fever at least 10 days before the start of the tour.

There are 16 rooms each with private balcony with lake views, en-suite facilities, hot water, 24 hour electricity operated by a hybrid power system, ceiling fans and screens for protection against insects. Meals are served in the main hall where there is a fully stocked bar and a reading lounge.
