We start the tour embarking at the dock of Puerto Maldonado around the river Madre de Dios and right after leaving port sail direct through the confluence of 2 big rivers of the Amazon, the Madre de Dios and the Tambopata River; the fascinating view of the assembly of these two rivers opens us to feel a greater connection with our mother earth. The trip of an hour downriver to the entry to the National Reserve of Tambopata is full of intense wildlife. After a brief walk and passing the access point to the protected section of the Reserve, we enter the jungle and follow the 5km walk to the Sandoval Lake. After arriving at Sandoval lake we can easily bath in the warm waters, crowded with piranhas, electrical eels, black color caimans and sweet-water manta rays, and it’s guaranteed to be a really pleasant bath due to the increased temperature of the water.
After taking a swim, we will depart for a delicious picnic lunch provided on the beach. The afternoon takes place with us taking to the water in dugout boats for an exploration of the abundant wildlife which makes its home in and around the lake. If we are fortunate we will see lively giant river otters, an animal that has been saved from the point of extinction here, around the waters of this preserved lake. As the afternoon draws to an end we disembark at a place closer to the river and walk the 3km trail returning to the Madre de Dios river, where our motorboat is waiting to carry on downriver to our lodge where dinner is waiting. After dinner we go by boat for a caiman search which will give us the opportunity to see from close quarters these spectacular animals that lay on the warm sand of the river banks. Also the largest rodent on the planet named capybara, may be observed at sunset.
