Guided vs Self-Drive Tours
For all our Jeep® safaris one can either be accompanied by a top guide throughout the entire duration of the safari or drive oneself and explore the Parks on your own, using local guides during certain excursions that require a guide. Below are the details of how these two programs differ from one another:
On Your Self-Drive Safari
You take the wheel of their Jeep® and are in complete control of your adventure. It's easy to get around in Patagonia, especially with out state of the art navigation equipment that includes a GARMIN GPS navigation system, a full interactive itinerary and i-Pad Expedition Manual, a GPS tracker and a Satellite phone. In addition, you will have the 24/7 support of our Patagonia team. Some excursions include local guides at no additional cost. Others can be self-guided at no cost; or we can hire a local guide for some of these as well. Your Guide to Excursions document contains all the details.
On Your Guided Safari
On a Guided Safari you enjoy all of the advantages detailed above while being accompanied by a top guide, who will serve as both resident expert and interpretive naturalist. Having a guide ensures all details of the trip are taken care of while you relax and enjoy a fun, safe and memorable journey.
