Itinerary

Day 1

Quito - Sacha Lodge

The journey to Sacha Jungle Lodge will begin in Quito, Ecuador's capital city. Take a 25-minute flight that takes you over the Andes Mountains' majestic snow-covered peaks and down over 8500 feet (2600 meters) into the Amazon Region. The flight destination is the port town of Puerto Francisco de Orellana, locally known as Coca, where you will be met by a bilingual guide and taken to a private dock. Here, you will pause for a snack and to use the rest rooms before boarding your covered motorized canoe for a 2-hour, 50-mile (80-kilometer) trip down the sediment-rich waters of the Napo, the largest river in Ecuadorian Amazonia.

During the ride, it will be easy to spot handsome shore birds such as herons, kingfishers, spoonbills, and ospreys between the scattered native huts, as you travel steadily away from civilization. Upon arrival to Sacha Lodge's 5000-acre (2000-hectare) private reserve, you will take your first walk along a raised boardwalk through dense flooded palm forest, where several species of monkeys are often sighted. But don't worry… your luggage will be carried for you!

The path leads to Pilchicocha Lake, a black-water paradise where you'd least expect to find any sign of people, but dugout canoes (and even paddlers) await to carry you even farther. As you cross the lake, the cries of tropical birds will lead you to your final destination and home base for an exciting jungle experience.

Day 2

Sacha Lodge

A typical day at Sacha begins at sunrise or earlier, in order to take advantage of the cool morning hours, when the rainforest's animals are most active. With your guide, you can design a flexible programme to suit your interest and activity level. You can chose from activities such as the canopy walk, rainforest trekking, birdwatching, animal spotting, and canoeing among others. In the afternoon, visits begin at around 3:00 pm and often continue into the evening, when the nocturnal insect and frog chorus begins.

Wherever your destination, your excursions proceed slowly in order to appreciate the fascinating details that your guides point out around you. Activities are spread out over a wide area and allow you to explore several distinct, but equally fascinating habitats.
