Sacha Lodge (“Sacha” is the Quichua Indian word meaning “forest”) was a dream founded by Arnold Ammeter, or as he is more commonly known, “Benny”. Born in Interlaken, Switzerland, Benny boarded a ship and headed for Chile in 1963. After spending only three months there, his thirst for adventure and the forests of South America had been awaken. After a short time in Chile he decided to set off for Bolivia, where he remained until 1967. Later, his travels took him farther North into Peru, where he worked in the gold business. Towards the end of 1979 Benny once again packed his bags and this time headed for Ecuador, where he still resides today. Here he once again worked with gold, but also began distributing Coca Cola to isolated communities of the Ecuadorian Amazon along the Napo River. In 1985, Benny opened his first tourist lodge, ” La Casa del Suizo,” on the Upper Napo at the village of Ahuano. Today, La Casa del Suizo is still functioning there as a successful tourist resort. The lodging at Sacha was carefully designed to offer comfort to the traveler yet preserve the environment and rainforest ambience. All of our cabins, with high thatched roofs and private shaded terraces, are constructed with traditional materials and nestle well concealed into the lush surroundings.
