Located deep in Peru’s Tambopata National Reserve, Sandoval Lake lodge overlooking sparkling, palm-rimmed Sandoval Lake.

The Sandoval Lake, just half an hour by boat from Puerto Maldonado, is the park’s main attraction. We can find lodges to stay in and an observation tower to have a panoramic view of the huge landscape, which is home to macaws and river otters.

The Lake is one of the most beautiful lakes in Peru; a great body of water protected in the Tambopata National Reserve. It is home of a family of Giant Otters in danger of extinction, but we do have an excellent chance to see them during our stay.

The banks of the lake are populated by jungle and flooded Mauritia Palm forests, which are home to monkeys from six different species, as well as with a huge variety of colorful birds.

This visit to the Tambopata National Reserve allows us to look in Sandoval Lake and the surrounding area where we will see a wealth of wildlife in the reserve and learn about the Amazon rainforest. Our program includes walks through the forest trails by day, night, and through boat excursions around the margins of this extraordinarily beautiful lake.

*The order and schedules of the excursions can be modified according to your guide, and as seen fit through coordination with the management by considering the physical condition of the passengers, and the climate of the moment.*

Arequipa, Puno and Cusco are located in southern Peru, which makes it a perfect route to visit in a week.

Arequipa is located by one side of the Misti Volcano on the Andes Mountain Range. Arequipa (2.350 meters above sea level), is the capital of the department of Arequipa. The big old buildings, the temples, convents and monasteries are built with a volcanic lava material called « sillar ». Sillar has a white pearly color that the sun rays illuminate, which is the main reason why Arequipa is called « the White City ».

Puno, which is located in the south of Peru, was dominated by the Tiahuanaco culture. Puno is the maximum expression of the Aymara culture development. This can be appreciated in the archaeological remains found in this area.

The legend tells that from the Titicaca Lake waters emerged Manco Capac, the first Inca, and his wife Mama Ocllo, both children of the sun, to found the city of Cusco. They founded a huge empire as ordered by the sun god.

Cusco, is called the Archaeological Capital of America. It is a city that is opened to the world and coexists in special harmony with an urban place. Some Inca monuments like the Koricancha (Temple of the Sun), the Amaru Cancha (Fence of Snakes), the Kiswar Cancha and the Ajlla Wasi amongst others, are the treasures of the mixing races along with the Cathedral, the Temple of San Blas and La Merced Church and Convent.
