Sacha Lodge

Overview

The remote but luxurious Sacha Lodge in the Ecuadorian Amazon is located a two hour journey down the Napo River. The adventure begins in Coca where you will board a comfortable, motorised canoe which will transport you deep into the rainforest. The next step of the journey takes you on a leafy boardwalk where the crash of monkeys and birds calling above will let you know that you are truly in the jungle. A dug-out canoe ride completes your rainforest mission and you will emerge from the creek to views of Sacha Lodge set against a lush green backdrop of palm trees and vegetation. An elevated maze of boardwalks leads you to your wooden cabin which has private, jungle views. Activities include sunset canopy walks 36 metres above ground, caiman spotting by night, bird watching and community visits. The cuisine fuses Amazon flavours (have you ever eaten forest ferns and fungi) with contemporary elements and breakfast is served over river views.

Sustainability

Chimu Adventures undertakes a number of sustainability measures within its operations including:

1) Only using local guides and office staff to both maximise local employment opportunities and minimise carbon footprints. Local guides also ensure you benefit from the intimate knowledge, passion and culture of the country you’re visiting.

2) Where possible, using locally owned and operated boutique hotels to maximise the return to the local community.

3) Chimu’s “Pass it on” programme has provided funding to hundreds of local community projects in Latin America. Our aim is to empower local communities, helping them to develop their own infrastructure for the future. Since 2006, we have been working with Kiva (a well-known Non-Governmental Organisation), providing hundreds of loans to local businesses all over South America.

4) In our pre tour information we provide a range of tips and advice on how to minimise your impact on both local environments and communities.

5) Chimu Adventures’ offices also take a number of sustainability measures including carbon offsets for company vehicles and most staff travel. Chimu Adventure’s internal processes are also structures to create a paperless office and to reduce waste. There are also internal programmes to help staff minimise their carbon footprint such as our staff bike purchase assistance plan which encourages office staff to commute to work via bicycle. Currently almost half of our office based staff commute to work via bicycle.

Sacha Lodge was carefully designed to offer comfort to the traveller yet preserve the environment and the rainforest. All of the cabins have high thatched roofs and private shaded terraces. They are constructed with traditional materials and are well concealed, nestling into the lush surroundings. Each of the 26 rooms feature a private bathroom with flushing toilet and hot shower. All cabins are screened against insects, have ceiling fans and two comfortable double beds. They are also equipped with hammocks allowing guests to relax, looking out into the jungle and watching for wildlife such as toucans, agoutis and monkeys. The lodge also features a raised lookout above the main bar and lounge, which offers a scenic view of Pilchicocha Lake and excellent opportunities for birdwatching.
