HUNTING SEASON · March, 1st – June, 30th


Staying right where the action happens doesn’t mean you need to be uncomfortable, cold, or eat from a can. Algar has made a strong point about having 5 star lodging while being in a secluded unspoiled area. You will be enjoying our ranch grown vegetables, pasture raised beef, locally caught trout, and the best of Argentina’s wines, and of course, the game you harvest; all prepared by our in-house chef.

All our very spacious rooms have private bathroom, and are tastefully decorated.

About Us

Algar Safaris began its operations in 1991, making it the longest standing hunting company in South America, and one of the oldest in the world. Family owned and operated, running on 100% private land, it has been a beacon of stewardship of the land and the biggest contributor to biological diversity and quality of game.

Going into our fourth decade we hold the same commitment to the environment to have an approved and endorsed proactive wildlife management plan.

When hunting Red Stag, it will be the responsibility of the guide to judge the stags score correctly and if any stag taken scores higher than estimated by the guide, the client will not be required to pay additional trophy fees.

Yes, of course. We strongly recommend exporting your trophies at a later date, the cost will depend on the size, height and weight of the crate to be exported.

You can expect temperatures of approximately 25 – 70 degrees (F), depending on the time of year.

Predominantly Spanish, but you can ask for an interpreter (at an extra cost). The general manager and other employees speak English.

Some rain is to be expected since the weather is unpredictable; we recommend you bringing light rain gear. March and April are usually very dry, May and June get increasingly moist. However, given that the annual rainfall is 12 inches, not much rain can really be expected.
