field guide Gabriel Barriga was leading a group of travellers in an excursion to Lake Sandoval, a water mirror surrounded by wetlands and palm trees where howler monkeys, black cai mans, giant river otters and a wide variety of bird species can be observed. About 50 meters away from the trail that heads towards the lake, the group saw a large animal moving its excep tionally long and bushy tail. it was a full -grown adult anteater 

– About three meters long and 80 kilos weight.

– Offering an amazing spectacle Sandoval Lake, as it was digging to feed from a termite nest. The large st species in its suborder, this insectivorous mammal is native to Central and South America. It is easily identified by its tubular snout with a long and thin tongue that can reach underground insect colonies; a small head that it keeps facing the ground due to a hump; and a tail almost as big as the body. Its fur has earthy colors and a bold pattern that disrupts camouflage, as it is a defense mechanism known as Aposematism or warning coloration.

This is an extremely rare sighting as the Giant Anteaters are under a vulnerable

You are welcomed and pick-up from the airport/coach terminal of Puerto Maldonado by our Representative to take you to our office where you can leave your larger baggage which is not necessary for the trip, but you will need to bring a backpack for personal items and more. Then, we transfer you to a local port where you board a motorboat and navigate down the Madre de Dios River.  On the way, we observe various mammal species such as turtles, birds, lizards, monkeys, turtles, caimans, etc., until we reach a checkpoint of the Sandoval Lake Reserve and after passing a check, we start walking for 5 km (1 and half to 2 hours) to reach Sandoval in Amazon Travel Lake where we take a canoe bringing us to the Sandoval Lake Lodge.
There, we accommodate ourselves and after lunch, we return sailing the lake in a canoe to see its typical inhabitants – giant river otters, black caimans, a prehistoric bird shansho, herons, cormorants, kingfisher, etc. Then, we return to the lodge for dinner to later get back to the lake again, and this time to undertake an evening caiman observation, as caimans are nocturnal animals. Our professional naturalist Tour Guide shows and explains us about these animals. We overnight in the Sandoval lake lodge.
Today, we wake up very early go to the surroundings of the Sandoval Lake where huge number of various palms grow in its water creating an area of marsh. This place is called Collpa de Palmeras MACAW PALM TREE tree and it attracts various macaw species and other parrots to eat sawdust of its palms as it contains sodium, calcium, potassium and other minerals helping them to digest. Then, we go back to the lodge to be given breakfast. Later, we take a trip going to observe stunning flora and fauna of the Sandoval Lake Reserve in Amazon Travel.
We can appreciate monkeys, deer, wild boars, tapirs or spectacled bears, just to name a few. We return to the Sandoval lake lodge for lunch. Afterwards, we get ready for a return boarding a canoe again to sail over the Sandoval Lake followed by a walk to the checkpoint and from there sailing the Madre de Dios River by a motorboat towards Puerto Maldonado.
