South & Central America your way with Natural Focus Safaris
The 2018/19 edition is full of unique ways to experience this spectacular part of the world, from staying at a remote Amazon Rainforest eco-lodge to taking a train through the Andes or island-hopping through the Galapagos.
South Melbourne-based travel wholesaler Natural Focus Safaris (NFS) has gone to press with their 2018/19 South & Central America brochure, filled with exquisite wilderness lodges and secluded rainforest retreats such as Tierra Chiloé in Chilean Patagonia, Pacuare Lodge in Costa Rica and Manu Wildlife Center near Peru’s Manu National Park. There’s even a selection of enchanting luxury properties in the surreal Atacama Desert and on far-flung Easter Island, whose famous stone “moai” feature on the cover.
For accommodation that moves you, there are sleek catamarans for navigating the Galapagos Archipelago, stylish riverboats to cruise the Amazon River and even a lavish Peruvian sleeper train. The popular Jacare Houseboat is reprised – an ideal base to search for jaguars in Brazil’s Pantanal, and so are the carefully curated selection of small ships for exploring Patagonia, the Falklands and Antarctica.
Of course, there are a wide range of trekking options in epic destinations such as Machu Picchu and Torres del Paine. You can even island-hop the Galapagos Archipelago, should you prefer to spend more time on land. In towns and cities, expect luxurious small hotels, character-filled boutique accommodations or authentic homestays. Some of the many genuine cultural experiences our travellers can enjoy outside of the wilderness areas include picking grapes at a family-run vineyard in Carmelo, Uruguay, savouring a traditional meal with a Cuban family in Trinidad and marching with a brass band in Oaxaca during Mexico’s Day of the Dead celebrations.
