Accommodation.

A week’s safari with Jakotango will see you stay in three different types of accommodation – Base Camp, our mountain fly camps and a gaucho’s farmstead. Jakotango Base Camp is situated on the banks of Río Filo Huahum, set within 12,000 hectares of private land bordering the Nahuel Huapi and Lanin National Parks.

 

The camp is formed of four luxury African safari tents, with en-suite bathrooms, and the ‘quincho’ – a beautiful log cabin that serves as our dining room and bar. The tents are spacious but cozy, with wood-burning stoves lit morning and evening. When up in the mountains we stay in fly camps, and a ride will typically include two nights camping. The fly camps are basic, made up of dome tents each with sleeping bags, cots and mattresses. There are no showers but fresh mountain springs to wash your face and hands in and, the following day, we always return to a hot shower. Any luxuries missing up in the mountains are made up for with good food, good wine and great adventure.

 

Finally, we end the week at Felipe’s House which is only accessible by horse or by boat. In terms of comfort, consider it between fly camping and Base Camp; there are spacious and comfortable safari-style tents and shared bathrooms set within the corrals of Felipe’s farmstead. We are cooked and cared for by Felipe and his family, congregating in an ancient barn that has been converted into a kitchen and dining room. 

A typical safari sees an itinerary of: 2 nights at Base Camp, 1 night at El Buque Fly Camp, 2 nights back at Base Camp, 1 night at Felipe’s Fly Camp and the final night at Felipe’s House. However, this itinerary is subject to change, depending on the weather.
