Activities with the lodge
You will be divided into small groups, each accompanied by a native guide of the region with knowledge of the medicinal
plants of the Amazon and a bilingual naturalist guide with knowledge of the biology and ecology of the area. Depending
on the the weath, the day of exploration begins at sunrise to make the most of the coolness. This is the time of day
when animals are most active. In the afternoon the activities can extend until sunset, where the night concert of insects
and frogs begins. The activities will allow you to explore different fascinating ecosystems.
Trails will allow you to observe very closely the "Ceibo", trees with aerial roots that pierce the sky from the top of their
50m height. Other paths have been built on raised wooden platforms. You can then cross over the ground sometimes
flooded by the rains without a problem. A pod will also allow you to fly over a swamp.
You can also choose activities closer to the water such as canoeing through rivers and lakes. By making almost no noise you will multiply your chances to observe the most shy animals: sloths, dolphins, monkeys, pumas... At night, the light
of the flashlights reflects off the eyes of caimans or snakes.
The 43m high observation tower is one of the favorite activities for travelers. Located on a hill, 30 minutes’ walk from the lodge, this tower offers a splendid and unique view above the canopy. The trick is to climb the tower at sunrise or sunset. The birds are then very active in search for food and the monkeys can mingle with the show. With the telescopes the guides will also be able to look for three-clawed sloths.
If you want to go even higher, the Sacha Lodge offers a new activity: a cabin suspended more than 45 m from the
ground. This attraction offers a 360° remote control tour with a metal gimbal going back and forth and top to bottom!
You will be able to observe toucans and monkeys even closer thanks to this unique way to appreciate the Ecuadorian
In the butterfly house we will explain their life cycle. You will be able to observe hundreds of multicolored butterflies.
One of the most popular places in the Yasuní Biosphere Reserve is the parrot clay wall. At the end of a path of about
thirty minutes you will arrive at the clay wall where parrots and parakeets come to take the minerals essential to their
well-being. You can see up to 11 species of birds and maybe even some mammals like howler monkeys, tapirs and
