Sacha Lodge, Ecuadorian Amazon

Two hours from the nearest settlement, Sacha Lodge benefits from its own private reserve in the Amazon Basin. Wake up to parrots besides your window. Take moonlit jungle hikes through evocative sounds and smells. Search for jaguars, pumas and armadillos. 

The lodge provides luxury in wooden suites with epic viewing platforms. Wildlife is paramount to the experience here and a series of canopy walkways ensure you can encounter most of it without leaving the lodge. 

A stay here will be all inclusive of meals and a customised Amazon program of activities. This is a great choice if you want to explore the Amazon, without traveling into its less accessible depths.
