Lake Sandoval half day excursion
Puerto Maldonado, Peruvian Amazon, Peru
A beautiful oxbow lake, home to some truly unique wildlife including the endangered giant river otter, red howler monkeys, macaws and side-neck turtles. The lake's mirror-like reflections and resident wildlife provide countless photographic opportunities.
Journey by canoe for half an hour to the nearby Tambopata national reserve, from which you travel on foot through rainforest trails to reach the lake. Here you'll glide across the glassy waters by canoe, exploring the waters and surrounding forest in search of the resident wildlife. Ideal for anyone with an interest in wildlife, particularly those seeking a glimpse of the endangered giant river otter.
