Short description of the Amazon Tambopata Peru Nature:
Sandoval Lake is a lake situated in the Sandoval Lake Reserve, within Amazon Rainforest, in the Madre de Dios Department, near a city of Puerto Maldonado.
The reserve refuges diverse animals, for example, giant river otters, turtles, black caimans, monkeys, birds such as a prehistoric bird Shansho, macaws, parrots, cormorants, kingfishers and others.
Collpa de palmeras, a special place where macaws and parrots fly down to eat dry palms that are rich in mineral salts, calcium, sodium, potassium, etc. These trace elements help them to digest.
We also explore other interesting places near the Sandoval Lake such as the Cachuela clay-lick, Monkey Island – a habitat of 3 monkey species, and the Collpa de palmeras.
