Rockjumper Wildlife Tours: Destination: Patagonia

previous page

Wild and remote, the name Patagonia conjures up images of snow-capped mountains, windswept grasslands, dense forests, and productive seas. During this special tour, we will explore all of these habitats providing some of the world’s finest scenery as a constant and ever-changing backdrop while we seek out the evocative wildlife of the southernmost part of South America.

Our foremost target will be the legendary Puma. Using the best trackers and with access to the very best areas to find them, opportunities for success are high. Southern Chile has an enormous diversity of interesting mammals and we will seek them out as well. Small carnivores are particularly well represented and we have good chances for three species of fox: Darwin’s, Chilla and Culpeo Fox. There are also three species of small cats, all are shy and difficult to see but we will seek out the highly localized Kodkod. We have good chances to see the brightly pattered Patagonian Hog-nosed Skunk and will search for two very localized otter species: Marine and Southern River Otter. We are sure to see large numbers of Guanaco, and will try for some rarer species like Huemul Deer, the tiny Pudu Deer, and the bizarre Hairy Armadillo. Our time spent on and near the enormously rich offshore waters of Patagonia should produce a fabulous array of marine mammals, which could include the mighty Blue Whale and other cetaceans such as Commerson’s and Peale’s dolphins along with South American Sea Lion and South American Fur Seal. The birding is also fabulous, and we hope to encounter King Penguin, Black-browed Albatross, Magellanic Woodpecker, Magellanic Plover, to name but a few of the many highlights

We were very lucky to have such knowledgeable guides, Shadow had the ability to place us in the right spot at the right time when other guides were still thinking about it. It was nice just to sit and observe the interactions.
Great tour, the mix of participants also worked well. Many eyes help spot things which might otherwise be missed (back seats are higher and sometimes you just catch a glimpse that the front seat people miss).

Great communications and customer service.
One of the best trips I’ve been on. The sightings were fantastic, Andre was great, the food phenomenal and the support staff exceptional!
Andre was an excellent guide in all regards and made sure everything went smoothly.

LH - Tailor-made South Africa & Botswana October 2018

I want to thank all of you at Rockjumper who worked to give me and my six friends the trip of a lifetime! The trip was perfectly planned; we saw a wonderful array of sights in perfect settings and lodgings all throughout the thirteen days. Logistically, everything worked like clockwork and it took all the stress out of traveling.

But without a doubt, what made the trip so incredibly special was our tour guide/leader, Rainer Summers. He not only lead us to the sights, through airports and into the bush but he managed to keep us all together, without losing anyone for more than five minutes – and I can assure you: that was not an easy task. (We really are not senile – just a bit independent).

His knowledge of what we saw and where to take us, especially in Cape Town improved our experience greatly. His knowledge of the wildlife and its social structure and behavior at Mala Mala and in Botswana increased our appreciation of what we saw exponentially. Nothing was too much trouble whether it was showing us how to use binoculars or camera or how to spot birds.

He also made sure that everyone was comfortable and at ease in all situations. He anticipated everyone’s needs and he ensured that we all had what we needed and/or wanted everywhere.

But most of all, Rainer was delightful to be with. He was fun and his wit and sense of humor made him a great companion. He is a tremendous asset to your organization. We all would like to return to Africa and Rockjumper’s tours but we will want to have no one but Rainer with us!!! We cannot envision a tour leader who could top this experience.

So, thank you for arranging the tour and a special thanks for choosing Rainer to be our guide. It was a magnificent experience and a week later, I am still wishing I was in Africa!

Sincerely,
LH
