PUMA HUNT – Patagonia
April 27 – May 3, 2019
Stunning landscapes, culture, creative and nature…
This is an ULTIMATE PUMA HUNT Photo Adventure with a limited group size!
Puma are one of the great big cats of the world. We are offering a maximum of 5/6 photographers the chance to track, shoot and watch these shy creatures. Fortunately, in recent times, specialised guides have semi habituated Puma to allow small groups to get closer to them. The result is that we can offer you a very unique nature experience in one of the world’s most amazing landscapes. The southern Andes Mountains of Chile and Argentina is one of the greatest wilderness locations on this earth. Its true name is Patagonia. The Andean mountains cut through the plains to offer some of the most beautiful landscapes imaginable. This fantastic tour is inclusive of all land travel expenses from excellent accommodation to specialised local guide, transport and of course your world class photo guide. They will go beyond the ‘call of duty’ to make sure that you have a great holiday. Most of the walking is easy to moderate. You only require reasonable fitness for this unique adventure as it will also have some rocky sections.
ARE WE LIKELY TO FIND PUMA?
The answer is yes! While nothing is guaranteed in nature, this region has an outstanding record for Puma sightings. Add to this the quality time offered and our local expert guide – we are confident that you will see, shoot and enjoy Puma – in the wild!
