The Heath River Lodge offers a small, comfortable and intimate environment, built of environmentally-sound local materials, such as “driftwood” mahogany, and palm-thatch, with just ten double (or triple) private bungalows, with private bathroom/toilets and hot showers, and a spacious, high-roofed dining, bar and lounge area.
Sandoval Lake Lodge overlooks sparkling, palm-rimmed Sandoval Lake, the most beautiful and wildlife-rich of all lakes in Tambopata-Madidi. This privileged location gives you exclusive access to the lake in the early morning and late afternoon, the choice hours for wildlife viewing and photography. Sandoval Lake Lodge is built out of ecologically-correct driftwood mahogany and is owned jointly by a nonprofit conservation group and five families of indigenous Brazil nut collectors. It has 25 screened rooms with private bathrooms w/ hot showers, flush toilets, light, fans.
Getting there is half the fun - From Puerto Maldonado we take a 30 min motorcanoe followed by a 1- hour (3 km/2 mi) forest walk and finally a 30 minute lake paddle to reach the lodge.
