An adventure awaits you in the heart of the La Pampa province! This rustic lodge provides you with an excellent hunting experience in an atmosphere created to foster comradery and memory making with your group and others.
With over 50,000 free-range acres and 5,000 high-fenced acres you can hunt for free range and high fence red stag, puma, water buffalo, fallow deer, feral goat, wild boar, blackbuck, four horn sheep, mouflon, and hybrid sheep amongst an incredibly diverse landscape made up of dunes, dense brush, and tree-spotted plains. It is not uncommon to chase after free-ranging stags ranging from 300-340 SCI points with much larger taken each year due to the extensive management program their biologist started years ago.
You will have every need met throughout your stay as you enjoy the large fireplaces, outdoor firepit area, comfortable seating, and pool table. The rooms are comfortable, spacious and well thought out. Each room has an ensuite bathroom. You can also spend some time in the spa room where there is an indoor jacuzzi, sauna, and workout bike. The kind staff will keep you well fed and ready to take on the day’s adventure!
For those who want to take a break from hunting or are observers, this lodge has a few options for you. Enjoy non-hunting activities such as hiking, horseback riding, cooking classes, photo safaris, and experiencing the life and work of a gaucho.
Accommodations & Meals
The compound-feel of the lodge layout as well as the incredible trophy room/game room will bring your group together to make memories, share memories, and build new friendships with other guests.
The main lodge is made up of a large trophy room/game room/bar with mounts from around the world, a pool table, and large fireplace. You will be hard pressed to decide whether to enjoy recounting the day’s adventures in this room or by the outdoor firepit. The dining room and secondary living room adjoin to create a feel of togetherness. The secondary living room also has a massive fireplace. You can also enjoy the spa room with an indoor jacuzzi, sauna, and bike.
The details in each bedroom have been carefully planned so that your stay will be comfortable and relaxing. 8 bedrooms have a private bathroom and either 1 king or 2 twin beds as needed. The 9th room has 2 bedrooms with a shared bath. Laundry service is available for your convenience.
As a special treat for guests, you can enjoy dinner at an old-days grocery store located on the ranch where the gauchos went for their supplies “back in the day” (such as salt, jerky, eggs, among others), and to catch a break from long hours of hard horse riding and cattle herding. It was also the place where gauchos used to come together to enjoy a “mate” and share stories of day-to-day and work, making this one of the most typical gathering places in the Argentine Pampas.
You will eat the delicious Argentine dishes including barbequed meats, as well as the finest wines from Mendoza and Patagonia. Both lunch and dinner include assorted beverages (bottled water, beer, soft drinks and wine) free of charge. You will also enjoy get-togethers by the bonfire before dinner, where everyone enjoys delicious regional products while sharing their stories of the day.
You will be able to hunt the 50,000 acre free range property or the 5,000 acre high fence property. Your hunting techniques will include scouting on the back of trucks, spot & stalk hunting and hunting from elevated box blinds as you wish. Your hunting skills will be tested by the diverse terrain and abundance of game.
Historically bow hunters have averaged about 90% shot opportunity during the first 2 weeks of the season.

Free range red stags can range from 300-340 SCI points with much larger taken each year due to the extensive management program their biologist started years ago.
More and more, traveling to exotic destinations to hunt and experience the local customs and culture of the local people is becoming an activity that is enjoyed by both hunters and non-hunters alike. This lodge has developed a program of non-hunting activities that is designed to provide those in the group who do not wish to hunt (or simply want to take a day or half day off) with an opportunity to experience and enjoy the natural beauty that is found in the wild places on the pampas. Activities such as horseback riding, hiking, photo safaris, observing and participating in everyday gaucho activities and cooking lessons with the local chef allow the non-hunter to truly appreciate the beauty of their natural surroundings as well as experience the customs, culture, and way of life of the local people.
