Day 1: Cusco or Lima - Tambopata, Sandoval Lake Lodge
Puerto Maldonado to Sandoval Lake Lodge, stopping as we go to spot birds and butterflies.
Day 2: Sandoval Lake
A pre-dawn wake-up call will enable us to be on the lake for sunrise and a hopeful encounter with the family of Giant Otters who frequent the lake and are most active at this time of day.
Day 3: Sandoval Lake Lodge - Puerto Maldonado - Cusco or Lima
Shorter paddle around the west end of the lake to try and glimpse the Giant Otters before returning by motor canoe for the 35 minutes return trip to the Puerto Maldonado Airport.
* Please note that all rainforest itineraries may vary slightly so as to maximize wildlife sightings, depending on the reports of our researchers and experienced naturalist guides.
For a more relaxed, complete introduction to the rainforest, we recommend a two nights stay. However, with the easy access from Puerto Maldonado, for the first time it is possible to spend only one night in the rainforest and still get a good preliminary idea of the splendor of the Peruvian Amazon.
