Located in the heart of the Amazon, Sacha is strategically situated beside a tranquil oxbow lake, Pilchicocha. The lodge was carefully designed to be comfortable for travellers yet preserve the flavor of the jungle.
Guests are divided into small groups, each of which are led by a native guide with expert knowledge of the rainforest's medicinal and other useful plants, and a bilingual naturalist guide educated in the biology and ecology of the area.
Activities are spread out over a wide area and allow visitors to explore several distinct but equally fascinating habitats. For adventurous souls, the day does not necessarily end with dinner. Night walks and canoe trips, with the aid of flashlights, often reveal creatures seldom seen during daylight. Caimans (of the alligator family) and giant insects rule the jungle after sunset.
The lodging at Sacha was designed to preserve the environment and rainforest ambiance, as well as to ensure that guests enjoy their time here. Each of our 10 double cabins, with high thatched roofs and private shaded terraces, are constructed using traditional materials and nestle in well in the lush surroundings.
We take pride in our friendly staff, who are always available to cater to any special needs you may have. On average, there are three staff members on duty for every two guests at the lodge.
Throughout the Lodge, 24-hour electricity is provided by a distant, nearly inaudible generator.
All the drinking water provided at Sacha (including ice) comes from a local well and is purified with porcelain filters and ozone treatment, the most thorough purifying systems available. This water is tested regularly and has been proven perfectly safe for human consumption. If you prefer, however, you may purchase bottled water from the bar.
In your shower you will find dispensers of biodegradable soap and shampoo. Although all runoff water is treated with ozone, we recommend the use of these amenities as an extra measure to protect the environment. You will also be provided with fresh towels each day.
Sacha Lodge now provides laundry service (washing and drying) for our guests. Please discusst costs with our lodge administrator.
Boots and ponchos:
Rubber boots and rain ponchos are available for all of our guests at the lodge, free of charge!
In case of emergency, both cellular telephone (Movistar) and radio communications are available from the lodge. In addition, each of our guides remain in constant radio contact with the lodge during all excursions and activities.
We keep a complete first aid kit for any minor injuries or ailments you may experience. However, please bring any special medication you might need with you. In case of a serious injury or illness, there is a modern medical center located within 20 minutes of Sacha Lodge.
At all times we have five staff members on duty patrolling our reserve to keep both the lodge and the surrounding environment safe.
