Amazon Green Tambopata Tours 4 days / 3 nights

Amazon Green Tambopata 4 days: for those with limited time in jungle trips but still wanting to experience a rich and remarkable section of the Amazon Rainforest the beautiful Sandoval Lake Lodge in the lower section of the Tambopata National Reserve is an excellent choice. Here we present an extended version of our 4 day itinerary with a highly recommended extra day to make the most of this wildlife rich rainforest environment in amazon green.

This Tambopata Eco lodge is easily accessible from the friendly and fascinating jungle town of Puerto Maldonado, a major centre of the timber, gold mining and eco-tourism industries in the Southern Peruvian Amazon. Puerto Maldonado is itself easily accessed from Lima and Cusco due to excellent local air links. From Puerto Maldonado our lodge is approximately 3 hours away and the journey – a thirty minute boat ride, followed by a short jungle hike and finally a paddle to our jungle home by catamaran – is fascinating in itself. Lago Sandoval is an ox-bow lake, a curve of the Madre de Dios River cut off by the river changing course. These quiet and beautiful habitats are wonderful places for wildlife watching, whether exploring the Tambopata National Reserve lake in silence by catamaran, with only the sound of our craft’s paddles for company, or walking trails with experienced nature guides through diverse forest habitats.
