Sandoval Lake is a “dipper lake” formed generations ago by the changing waters of the Madre de Dios River, and is considered by tropical forest specialists as the best and most attractive lake in the Peruvian rainforest. This particular lake has one of the largest and most accessible populations of Giant Otters in danger of extinction in Peru, huge Black Cayman and Paiche 10 feet long, the largest freshwater fish in the world. Once it spread throughout South America, the giant Otter was hunted almost to extinction and is now one of the most vulnerable mammals on the continent. However, Lake Sandoval has a prosperous and healthy population, and from the comfort and stability of the catamarans, guests have the opportunity to see these powerful predators while fishing and having fun in the lake, as well as a lot of colorful birds, and reptiles.
