We conduct this two days Caiman Spotting Tour in Tambopata-Candamo. Tambopata-Candamo is a nature reserve in the Peruvian Amazon Basin. It is in the south of Madre de Dios River in Tambopata province called Inambari.
Tambopata-Candamo natural reserve was created in January 26, 1990, to protect the forests adjacent to the rivers Heath and Tambopata. Both these rivers have two important ecosystems and are noted for its biodiversity. They represent the native flora and fauna with 165 species and 41 families of trees, 103 species of mammals, 1300 species of butterflies and 90 species of amphibians.
The reserve is located across the regions of Madre de Dios and Puno:
• Tambopata has 40% of the reserve in the department of Madre de Dios.
• Carabaya and Sandia has 60% of the reserve in the department of Puno.
Access is from Puerto Maldonado, where one can get to the preserve via the Tambopata River; or by car via the Puerto Maldonado–Cusco Road.
