This privileged location gives you exclusive access to the lake in the early morning and late afternoon, the best hours for wildlife viewing and photography.

The Lodge

Sandoval lodge specializes in small groups. Individualised attention and our overriding quest to conserve the lake and surrounding rainforest are at the heart of the operations.
