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.
On our Self-Drive Safaris
Passengers take the wheel of their Jeep for complete control of their adventure, relying on the state of the art navigation equipment we provide to get around the National Parks. This equipment 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 willhave 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. Our Guide to Excursions document contains all these details.
On our Guided Safaris
Passengers on Guided Safaris 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 insures all details of the trip are taken care of while you relax and enjoy a fun, safe and memorable journey. This option offers two more possibilities:
- Guide in Vehicle – With this option the guide rides with the passenger in a single Jeep, and can assist with driving at times.
- Guide in Accompanying Vehicle – With this option, the guide escorts clients in a separate vehicle
Guide to Excursions
One of the key advantages of our Jeep safaris is that you have a much greater variety of excursions to choose than when staying at any hotel within the parks on their all-inclusive programs. Depending on whether you choose a Guided or Self-Drive Safari, some of these are included in the price of your tour, while others require local guides and are available at additional cost.
