About this trip

Near South America’s southernmost tip lies a vast and wild land that sprawls across Argentina and Chile, and is home to fantastic mountain peaks, vast and empty steppes, glaciers and icefields and some incredible animals. This area – Patagonia – is world-renowned for its incredible natural beauty, and it is here where the elusive Puma can be found far easier than almost anywhere in the Americas. Frequently regarded as one of the most beautiful places in the world, the 1,800 square kilometre / 700 square mile Torres del Paine National Park is our chosen spot for our Patagonia photo tour to photograph the beautiful Puma; the open terrain and good population of Pumas, together with the fact that their habits are well known means that we have a very good chance of seeing and photographing them on foot!


With other wildlife including the Guanaco, Andean Deer, Hairy Armadillo, Chilla Fox, Geoffrey’s Cat and Patagonian Weasel awaiting to be seen, not to mention fantastic bird life, Torres del Paine is assuredly a photographic destination that needs to be ticked off the bucket list!

DESTINATION ALLURE

Patagonia, specifically Torres Del Paine, is world-renowned for its incredible natural beauty and it supports one of the largest concentrations of Puma in the world. 

MONTH OF TRAVEL

April is ideal for photographers as autumn colours set in and Puma mother cats are actively hunting to provide food to their growing cubs. 

WILDLIFE & LANDSCAPES

Along with its most popular drawcard, the puma, Torres Del Paine also plays host to numerous other wildlife species and is known for its fantastic birding as well. All set against a backdrop comprising of mountains, glaciers, lakes and rivers. It is truly a photogenic locale!

SMALL GROUP DEPARTURES

This photo tour is limited to only 6 guests and will include a puma tracker and local guide on top of photographic tutoring.

Reviews

This was my second private trip with Oryx combined with my 6th Oryx group tour. I have two additional Oryx group tours on the horizon. The private trips allow significantly more individual instruction, both in photography and the digital darkroom. In addition, the daily itinerary is totally up to you. Penny Robartes was an exceptional tour leader who constantly gave me invaluable advice on camera settings, animal behavior, composition, and Lightroom processing. While I was very happy with my images and instruction from the group part of the tour, the private tour was a step or two up in quality. I plan to do more private tours in the future. I can't say enough about my experiences with Penny, Dale, and Marius. I can't imagine traveling with anyone else. I had the pleasure of meeting Nicolette for lunch prior to my tour. She has been so helpful over the years answering my many questions and making sure everything was arranged.
