Chile & Argentina
In the Realm of Giants

Ker & Downey’s Patagonia Wildlife Safari takes the spirit of the luxury African safari and transfers it to the stunning realm of giants that is Patagonia. On this in-depth adventure through southern Chile and Argentina, you are invited to immerse yourself in the untamed and unforgettable wildlands and panoramas of this incredible region.

Spend the first two days of your Patagonia Wildlife Safari in Puerto Bories at The Singular Patagonia. The former meatpacking plant-turned-national monument is the gateway to Chile’s Patagonia fjords.

Next, head to Torres del Paine National Park. Go horseback riding in one of the least visited and best-preserved places outside of the park. Here fossil canyons and wild horses are ever-present. You will also spend an entire day exploring some of the major outlooks and vistas of the park. The highlight of your luxury Patagonia wildlife safari is undoubtedly two full days of puma tracking and wildlife safari adventures. Expert trackers will bring you in full view of the Patagonia Big Five, including the elusive puma.

Los Glaciares National Park is home to the epic Perito Moreno Glacier and nearby flamingo lagoons. Spend your days in El Calafate exploring the glaciers. First view them from the boardwalks of Perito Moreno. Then embark on a full-day navigation across Lake Argentino to witness the calving of the Spegazzini and Upsala glaciers.

Your Patagonia wildlife safari then continues in the world’s southernmost city: Ushuaia. Widely known as the port to Antarctica, Ushuaia is a destination in and of itself. Indeed, it is full of unique history, saturated wildlife, and surprising luxury. From your luxury accommodations, you will be transported to some of the region’s most remarkable landmarks. This includes the penguin colonies of Gable Island, the sea lions of Harberton Ranch, and the “high voltage” views of Tierra del Fuego.

Finally, take a helicopter ride above the mighty Beagle Channel for an aerial view of the region before embarking on a three-day cruise through Tierra del Fuego. Excursions to Cape Horn National Park, Zodiac landings to stunning glaciers, and hikes through Magellanic woods and sub-Antarctic rainforests are the highlights during your time aboard the Stella Australis. Expect epic wildlife sightings of the resident penguins and sea lion colonies of Tierra del Fuego. Concluding in Punta Arenas, this leisurely yet adventurous cruise serves as the perfect end to your luxury Patagonia safari.
