Accessed by light aircraft flight from Quito followed by a two hour motorised canoe journey, Sacha Lodge, in the heart of Ecuador's Amazon Basin, is a haven for nature lovers, birdwatchers, scientists and adventure seekers.

Ollie is here to help give you the inside track.

Despite its remoteness, the lodge provides comfortable accommodation, first-class meals and expert guides in the depths of the tropical rainforest.

Sacha Lodge was carefully designed to offer comfort while being sensitive to the environment. Each of the double cabins, with high thatched roofs and private shaded terraces complete with hammocks, is constructed with traditional materials and nestles well into the lush surroundings.

Electricity is provided by a distant generator, and the private bathrooms provide hot showers. All cabins are screened against insects, and contain ceiling fans above two comfortable double beds.

The Butterfly House is another key attraction, as is the lodge's parrot lick, where parrots congregate to eat clay full of nutrients.

Why we love it

One of the lodge's highlights (literally) is the 135-foot observation tower allowing guests to climb into the treetops for a magnificent view of the surrounding area.
