PUMA – WATCHING IN PATAGONIA

RESERVATION FORM

WELCOME TO THE LAND OF THE PUMA

This experience focuses on photographers, observers, and nature lovers with a deep respect for wildlife and who want to enjoy observing them in their natural habitat. We are working inside Torres del Paine National Park, which presents a significant number of different individuals who have established their territory here together with many other animals like the puma’s favorite prey, the guanaco. Inside the park, there is a network of car trails, so we can easily move from one area to another when searching for the puma.

OBSERVATION OF PUMAS IN THEIR NATURAL HABITAT

The area where we operate is what we call The land of the Puma because it has the highest density of pumas in the world. However, we must not forget that they are wild animals, and we do not control or feed them, therefore we cannot guarantee a 100% sighting. Besides the puma, many other mammals can be observed here, like guanacos, foxes, and skunks. This area is also interesting for birdwatching and landscape photography, with one of the best backgrounds of the famous three granite towers.

PUMA WATCHING DAY

From Puerto Natales, we drive directly to the Land of the Pumas. We will go early to be at the park around dawn. Together with our tracker*, we will divide the search into different areas of the park to cover more ground and thus be able to find a puma roaming its territory. Through radio, we will be communicating with our puma tracker if anyone locate puma and where. When we find a puma, we will try to identify it, so we know how to approach it. After 6–7 hours, we will return to our hotels to rest and enjoy the photos and video collected during the day.

 Duration experience: 6 to 7 hours.
