EXPEDITION OVERVIEW

Learn about the flora and fauna of the tropical forest, while you hike through the lush vegetation. Embark on a lake tour by canoe on the lookout for caymans, the smaller cousins of alligators, which are often found hiding near the muddy banks, giant otters. Watch for monkeys and birdlife while exploring the thriving ecosystems of the rainforest and then, set off through the stark and stunning landscape of the Amazon to Lake Sandoval—one of the most beautiful lakes in the peruvian southern amazon.

ITINERARY

Fly or drive to Puerto Maldonado this morning and continue by motorized canoe to our comfortable lodge, situated within the Tambopata National Reserve in the Amazon rainforest. Spot local bird species along the lush shores of the Madre de Dios River en route to the lodge, and set off on an evening walk with a naturalist guide before dinner, keeping an eye out for some of the rainforest’s nocturnal creatures.

Spend the day exploring the thriving ecosystems of the rainforest with your naturalist guides. Scan the treetops for toucans, howler monkeys, and sloths, and glide along oxbow lakes on canoes for a chance to glimpse river otters, turtles, and, if we’re lucky, anacondas. Later, learn about the flora and fauna of the tropical forest, while you hike through the lush vegetation. Embark on a lake tour by canoe on the lookout for caimans, the smaller cousins of alligators, which are often found hiding near the muddy banks.
