Program

Day 1

Arrive at Sacha Lodge around 3:30 or 4:00 p.m. Swim in Lake Pilchicocha, which is a black water lake, home to many fish and animal species. A refreshing swim after arriving may be just what you need after being in the equatorial heat all day.

Bird observing from the mini tower offers guests an excellent opportunity to view several species of birds common around the lodge. It is also a great place to watch the sunset. Visit the butterfly house with your naturalist guide to view the beautiful colors of many different species of butterflies.

After dinner, accompany your naturalist guide on a night walk through the rainforest to view the hundreds of different species of animals that can only be found at night. Or maybe, a canoe ride on the lake to view the spectacled and black caimans with their glowing orange eyes as you silently paddle across the lake to get a closer view.

  • Meals included: Dinner

Day 2

Begin walking on the Liana Chica trail and arrive at the canopy walk, for spectacular views of the rainforest canopy and the many different species of vibrantly colored birds. After the canopy walk trip to Liana Grande, native guides will explain many different species of medicinal plants that have been used in their culture for hundreds of years.

Liana Grande will turn into the trail Higueron, which will take you through the pristine primary forest with huge kapok and fig trees towering hundreds of feet above your head. Higueron will eventually lead to the Finca, where an excellent lunch prepared especially for long day trips, will be served while you listen to the many species of birds around the Finca and enjoy the coolness of the covered picnic tables.

From the Finca, you may choose to take a leisurely hike along the Rio Napo or choose a little more challenging hike on the trail Leoncillo to try and spot the elusive dusky titi monkey. Either way, the trails will lead you back to the main boardwalk for your final hike and canoe ride back to the lodge.

  • Meals included: Breakfast, lunch, and dinner

Day 3

Leaving the lodge after breakfast, you begin your hike on the Lagartococha Trail. This trail offers you the chance to learn more about the native people and their relationship with the forest. After arriving at Lake Lagartococha, take a nice canoe ride through a natural swamp, which is the home of anacondas, caimans, and capybaras. After the canoe ride, a walk on the other side of Largatococha may give you the opportunity to spot capuchin or squirrel monkeys playfully jumping through the trees.

Around 4:00 p.m., you will begin what many think is the best trail at Sacha, a silent canoe ride through the flooded Amazonian forest. You have a good chance of being surrounded by troops of squirrel, capuchin, and howler monkeys. After your eye-popping ride through the flooded forest, you will arrive at Sacha's 135-foot wooden tower built around an ancient kapok tree. Get close up views of vibrantly colored birds through Sacha's powerful scopes. A canoe ride back through the flooded forest at night will be an awe-inspiring experience.

  • Meals included: Breakfast, lunch, and dinner

Day 4

Have breakfast and an easy walk on the boardwalk to watch monkeys one last time before your final departure from Sacha Lodge.

  • Meals included: Breakfast
