BIOSAFETY PROTOCOLS FOR COVID-19
They pride themselves on maintaining the highest standards of cleanliness and hygiene at Sacha Lodge. However, given the effects of COVID-19, they have taken additional steps to make your stay with them as safe as possible.
For excursions, Sacha Lodge's guests will be divided into small groups (maximum of 6 per guide), each of which will be led by a native guide with expert knowledge of the rainforest's medicinal and other useful plants, and a bilingual naturalist guide educated in the biology and ecology of the area. 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. Each group may decide on its own wake-up and breakfast time, as well as the difficulty and duration of their morning outings. In the afternoon, visits begin between 3:00 and 4:00 and often continue into the evening, when the nocturnal insect and frog chorus begins.
Activities are spread out over a wide area and allow visitors to explore several distinct but equally fascinating habitats. Several trails lead through pristine terra firme forest, where 150 foot kapok trees tower above and roots form huge buttresses to give trees support. Others follow strategically raised boardwalks in seasonally flooded forests, where walking on the ground would be nearly impossible during most of the year due to groundwater.
They are a private reserve and all activities take place inside the reserve (canopy walkway, kapok tree, creek canoe rides, Pilchicoha lake, etc.). At present, due to the sanitary emergency and to keep social distancing, they are not visiting the community interpretation center and the parrot clay lick in the Yasuni National Park, which are optional visits and sites located outside the reserve.
All organic waste is composted on site. Inorganic waste is shipped up river to Coca. Grey water passes through on site ozone treatment system before being released into the environment. Some fresh food, that grown in the Amazon, is bought in Coca, the rest is bought in Quito. Sacha is the largest private reserve in the Ecuadorian Amazon and the staff is made up of 90% locals from the Amazon, except for the chef, some naturalist guides and administrators. Free taxi service is provided to the residents of the local communities, also school supplies are provided to five local communities. There is also a medical assistance program to adjacent communities.
We understand that there are other considerations for booking with confidence in times of uncertainty. Therefore, Sacha Lodge is implementing the following changes to their reservation policies to protect your investment.
