Today, you can enjoy an excursion to Lake Sandoval. After a 30-minute boat ride
to the Tambopata National Reserve, wildlife surrounds you during a 1 ½ - hour
walk along two miles of trails to reach the lake. Then glide in a wooden canoe
across a beautiful, mirror-like, oxbow lake that is home to the endangered
giant river otter, as well as red howler monkeys, macaws, prehistoric hoatzins,
anacondas, point-tailed palm creepers and side-neck turtles. Spend two hours on
the lake enjoying at all that it has to offer.
After lunch, discover the Inkaterra Canopy Walkway &
Anaconda Walk. A five-minute boat ride takes you to the Inkaterra Canopy
Interpretation Center. After ascending the first tower, at 95 feet above the
forest floor, you will literally walk through the treetops for 1 ½ - half hours
along suspension bridges that link eight observation platforms. Enjoy
landscapes and vistas that would be unimaginable from below, while on the
look-out for giant strangler fig trees, orchids, toucans, woodpeckers, trogons
and –with luck- monkeys or sloths. After your descent from the Canopy,
experience the Anaconda Walk for about 30 minutes along the 760-foot long
wooden bridge over the Aguajales swamps. In this lush ecosystem, you may
observe the various species of amphibians, birds and mammals along with the
abundant flora of this flooded marshland. The walk finishes by returning to the
