Explore wild Patagonia in search of pumas and other wildlife with expert photographer and naturalist, Diego Araya.
This wonderful safari ventures through stunning Torres del Paine National Park with expert guide and photographer, Diego Araya, one of the most qualified locals in terms in tracking, approximation and photography of the fauna in the region. Staying at the wonderful EcoCamp Patagonia, head out each day to explore the park in search of its wonderful wildlife and extraordinary landscapes.
Diego will be on hand, not only ensuring you are in the right place at the right time to see as much wildlife as possible (hopefully including the puma!), but he will also assist you in capturing incredible photos throughout your journey.
Arrive at Punta Arenas airport where you are met and transferred to Torres del Paine National Park. Depending on your arrival time, you may enjoy a leisurely tour of the national park, where you can admire the jaw dropping beauty of the snow-capped peaks, glacial blue lakes and get a glimpse of the first signs of wildlife – the guanaco, the favourite food of the elusive puma.
Overnight: Eco Camp Patagonia
The trackers keep us informed of any sightings by radio. Meanwhile, you enjoy photographing the sunrise while enjoying breakfast and hot coffee on the go. Most days begin close to camp, in the park’s eastern sector, taking advantage of the stunning morning light and any animal activity. You will spend approximately six hours viewing and photographing the native wildlife of the park. You are likely to observe culpeo foxes, the mighty Andean condor, guanacos, and we hope to view the puma and the endangered huemul (South Andean deer). In the afternoons, after the peak sun hours and little wildlife activity, you may head to the western parts of the park. Here you have the opportunity to capture some of the more iconic landmarks such as Grey’s Glacier and The Horns while waiting for news from the trackers. Watch the sun setting over the Paine Massif before returning to camp. Photography tips and advice are offered by expert guide and professional photographer, Diego Araya.
