Wild Life Adventure & Hike
Any date (March-December)
Join our magical jungle tour in the massive Amazon Jungle. Learn the different uses of native plants by indigenous Amazonian tribes. Cruise the Madre De Dios River and Sandoval Lake to experience the most diverse wildlife and breath-taking landscape. Spend your nights enjoying the serene and calming sounds of nature from your luxurious hotel. This tour evokes a sense of peace and calm and reconnects you with the very essence of nature. We gurantee an advenure filled with sights you can find nowhere else in the world. It will certainly be an adventure you will never forget.
We welcome you at the airport or bus terminal and transfer you to “Wasai Hotel” at the banks of the Madre de Dios River. Upon arrival a refreshing welcome drink awaits you. Check into your comfortable private room with hot showers and Wi-Fi. Before tucking into a gourmet lunch, enjoy some time perusing the grounds and getting familiar with your surroundings. After lunch we take a private car to the Cachuela Center 30 minutes from Puerto Maldonado. On arrival we embark on a brief ethnobotanical walk through the jungle. An ethnobotanical walk is an excursion that focuses on the connection between plants and people. Explore the native plants of the Amazonia and learn how the native tribes have been using these plants for centuries for food, medicine, utensils, tools, clothing and ceremonial items.
We continue until we reach the canopy walkway. This bridge hangs at 15 meters above the ground, allowing for stunning views of the biodiversity in the jungle. Walk among huge trees and medicinal plants typical in the Peruvian rainforest. Guides will give a detailed explanation of the tropical ecology and will answer any questions you might have. The bridge ends at an observation tower that´s 40m above the ground and offers amazing views of the rainforest. As the sun begins to set, we gather some cocoa beans from a nearby plantation to prepare our very own organic chocolate. We settle at a great spot to enjoy amazing sunset views over the Madre de Dios River while consuming chocolate made with our very own hands. We head back for a scrumptious dinner before settling into our serene rooms, with calming sounds of the Jungle in our Ecolodge.
Early in the morning we visit the Parrots clay lick located 30 minutes from Puerto Maldonado in Madre de Dios River. This river bank attracts various species of macaw, parrots and parakeets that lick clay to help neutralize toxins they consume in their daily diets of raw fruits and flowers. Later, we travel back to Puerto Maldonado for yet another scrumptious gourmet lunch. After lunch, we start our 2-hour jungle walk through the Amazon Forest. Witness 500-year-old trees like the great Kapok tree and a variety of other flora and fauna. At the end of the trail, we take a small canoe boat to feast our eyes on giant otters, the black caiman and many different species of birds and monkeys.
The sunset in the lake is amazing and as night falls the rainforest awakens with the sounds of nature. This marks the time to begin our return walk to the Madre de Dios River and head back to our comfortable rooms in Puerto Maldonado. During the night, while cruising back to the hotel we will search for black caimans (crocodiles) in the Madre de Dios River. The lack of light gives us a good chance to have a stunning view of the southern constellations and the milky way. After dinner you have free time to try out the nightlife, pool or rest.
We wake up to a delicious breakfast in the jungle. Spend the rest of the day at your leisure. Later, at your convenience we transfer you to the airport or bus terminal to mark an end to un amazing adventure.

The Amazon rainforest of Peru is one of the most biodiverse regions on the planet. It houses 15% of all known species of terrestrial plants and around 10% of the mammals in the jungle. There are over 300 different species of trees in a hectare.
The forest provides everything from food, to shelter to natural medicine. Join our jungle tour to experience for yourself this natures paradise. Learn about the different spieces that call this dense and vast jungle home. Spend a night in a Sandoval lake lodge, surrounded by the sounds and fresh air of the Amazon Jungle. Spend your days gently floating on the lakes watching the breath taking flora and fuana that´s so abundent.
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.
