Day 1: Tambopata National Reserve to Lake Sandoval

You will arrive and be met by the guide at the airport or bus station. The guides are highly experienced professionals with deep knowledge of the area and the jungle. For a group with a maximum of an eight people, one guide will be available. Most of the tours are private as standard.

You will be transferred from the airport to the main office in the city. Upon arrival in the city of Maldonado, the transfer or guide will receive you and take you to the office in the city for a few minutes. In the office, it is recommended that you pack only the necessary things you need for your next days.

Your main luggage can stay in a safe. You will also offer rubber boots for muddy trails. You will then get transferred from the office to Puerto del Río Madre de Dios. In the company of the guide, you will sail along the Madre de Dios River, and then, on a 45-minute downstream trip by motor canoe, you will arrive at the entrance to Lake Sandoval. You will have lunch in the boat.

You can customize your box lunch with a vegetarian option. The trail will take you 1.6 miles on foot (2.5 kilometers) on foot. As you move forward, the jungle changes from secondary forest to primary forest of natural bamboo, the habitat of monkeys, sloths and macaws, until you reach a small canal where you will paddle canoes.

You will paddle for 100 meters (almost the same in yards) through a swamp of palm trees. With the abundance of "aguajes" (palm trees of Mauritania), those palm trees provide the most popular fruit of the Peruvian jungle, highly consumed by the locals as drinks and ice creams. Once reaching the lake, you will continue quietly around the lake to the lodge.

You will settle in the cabins and a little rest, in rooms or amacas. Before dinner, depending on the time of arrival, you will leave to explore part of the lake, looking for monkeys or black caiman (the black caiman is the largest in the Cayman and Cayman family, the largest view on the lake is six meters long / 20 feet).

In the forest of flooded palm trees, you can see hundreds of red-bellied macaws when they are falling asleep, one of the few species of macaws that live in herds and marshes of aguaje palm trees, like the one found in Lake Sandoval. You will also have the option of a night walk to observe different types of insects and tarantulas, and then you will have dinner and rest time.

Day 2: Sandoval Lake Tambopata Reserve - Night Walk - Clay Lick.

You will wake up early to cross the lake by canoe and take a short path along the main trail. One kilometer down the trail, there is a special place where every, morning parrots and macaws congregate to eat tree bark, which is very rich in minerals, and dozens of blue and yellow macaws, as well as red and blue macaws, take turns eating minerals in the dead palms or palm trees that nest them.

Returning from the parrot show, you will have the chance to see the friendly family of giant otters that are very active at that time on the lake. Giant otters feed an average of eight pounds of fish per day (4 kilos).

Lake Sandoval offers abundant wildlife, including six species of monkeys, black caimans, more than 40 species of birds living on the lake shore, all five species of kingfishers of Peru, and the most abundant group of Hoatzin, all the animals here are easy to photograph from the boats.

You will return to the lodge for a well-deserved breakfast, and after breakfast, you will talk a walk to the jungle to see giant trees such as the kapok and chestnut "Brazil nuts". These two trees are the highest in the Amazon, and the guide will show you and demonstrate how it is collected and marketed as an extremely important product for local economy.

You will return at noon to the lodge, and then have a little rest in the bungalows or in amacas. In the afternoon, you will take the canoe and explore a different area of the lake in search of the different troops of monkeys, very active at this time of day, the brown capuchin monkey and the squirrel monkey that live in the forest near the lake.

Before dinner, you will do a night walk to see insects, tarantulas, and snakes. Dinner is included on this day.
