One of the best trips in Calafate

This trip was extremely cool. Our host Silvestre spoke English, Spanish, German, Italian and he is learning Mandarin. He took the time to explain how life is in Calafate and... read more

I'm not sure what to say about the Safari Experience. We went because the reviews were so positive, but our experience did not bear that out. We went in the morning in mid April. Maybe our experience would have been better in the Spring or Summer, but I cannot recommend it in the fall/winter. The guide was very good, but... More

This trip was extremely cool. Our host Silvestre spoke English, Spanish, German, Italian and he is learning Mandarin. He took the time to explain how life is in Calafate and Patagonia. If you want to know how life is on a farm in harmony with nature and climate this is an ideal trip. Definately no tourist trap. With humor and... More

A group of 6 made arrangements for a morning Safari with Patagonia Profunda. Making the arrangements via email was quick and easy. They were very fast about returning emails and working with us to change the day of our Safari. We were picked up promptly in the lobby of our hotel as promised. Just as advertised we traveled by 4x4... More

I couldn't say more than the previous reviews, they say it all! I had a great time doing the safari, visiting an Estancia, watching the wildlife and the beautiful landscapes, followed by a nice dinner. Not only was our tour guide very friendly (on top of being handsome), he was so knowledgeable about the fauna and flora as well as... More

We had a free day in El Calafate before joining a trekking trip through Patagonia...so we had a look at what was available. Our taxi driver from the airport suggested a 4WD visit to a Ranch in the valley behind the township of Calafate.....and Safari Experience operated the tour. Together with another couple, we had the most enjoyable time exploring... More

We loved the safari experience with Patagonia profunda! This is an easy going family run business, non mass tourist attraction, small groups 4-8 people. The dinner was totally homemade, served in bowls, close to the fire accompanied by fine Argentinian red wine! The guides, Manuel et Silvestre know what they are talking about, making a great introduction about the history... More

We enjoyed the Safari Experience with my wife and 2 kids. It was a great way to break away from the glaciers and do something a little different in Calafate. We enjoyed the great views and 4x4 experience while exploring this beautiful estancia. It was great to see some wild animals, birds and local plants and learn more about their... More

Just back from 5 weeks in Argentina, Chile and Patagonia which is why this is a little belated, but of the many wonderful experiences in these three places, I have to say that the Safari Experience with Manu ranks very highly. He was a great guide and really interesting about the past history of Patagonia and the recent and present... More
