DAY 2: Sandoval Lake


After breakfast, we will head to the famous Sandoval Lake in the Tambopata National Reserve to canoe on the beautiful lake, which is home to endangered giant river otters, red howler monkeys, red-bellied macaws, anacondas, side-necked turtles, black caimans and much more.

After exploring the lake, we will return to the lodge for lunch. Afterwards, we will be able to do the incredible Inkaterra Canopy Walkway and the Anaconda Walk.

The Canopy Walk takes us to the treetops on a 29-meter high tower. For more than 400 meters, the walkway takes us through the treetops over a network of suspension bridges linking eight observation platforms.

From this impressive lookout, we will observe toucans, woodpeckers, trogons, monkeys and the three-toed sloth. Next, we will take the Anaconda Walkway. This walkway crosses a 200-meter long wooden bridge over the aguajales, where we can see a great variety of amphibians, birds, mammals, trees and other jungle flora. There is also the possibility of spotting snakes, perhaps even the huge anaconda.

In the evening, get ready for an incredible night adventure, as we head out to explore the Amazon rainforest at dusk. The nocturnal animals show intriguing behavior patterns and enhanced senses, as they have adapted to nocturnal life. We will go in search of some of these nocturnal creatures.

DAY 3: Explore plants


After an early breakfast, we will visit a traditional Amazonian farm where you can learn all about local farming techniques and taste some of their products.

We will visit the botanical garden, where you can see the immense variety of medicinal plants that are part of the “natural pharmacy” used by the inhabitants of the rainforest, then return to Inkaterra Hacienda Concepción for lunch and rest before heading out on the Cocha water excursion.

We will go out in canoes on the beautiful lake near the lodge, where we can go fishing.

The scenery here is wonderful, and we can see many birds, including hoatzins (skunk birds), flycatchers and gray-necked woodpeckers. Next we can visit the wreck of the steamship Fitzcarrald, and your guide will tell you all about its history and its connection to Werner Herzog’s award-winning film, Fitzcarrald. At sunset, we can observe more wildlife from our specially constructed wildlife viewing huts.

Today is the last day of this Amazon adventure, after a buffet breakfast, we will take the boat back to Puerto Maldonado.

Being in an Amazon region, expect the weather surrounding Sandoval Lake to be humid and with occasional rain. The rainfall that occurs within the Tambopata National Reserve can be between 2,500 to 3,000 millimeters a year. But most of these rains occur within the rainy season (November to April). While within the dry season, you can expect some cold fronts coming from the South Atlantic. If you want to take advantage of your time in the Andean country, you can try traveling during the dry season. One of the best-known facts about Peru is that the dry season coincides with the high tourist season. Take these data into account before organizing your trip to the Peruvian Amazon.
