Natural Focus releases 2019 South America Brochure
South Melbourne-based travel wholesaler Natural Focus has gone to press with their 2019 South America brochure. The front cover features a striking image of a green iguana photographed in Manuel Antonio National Park in Costa Rica, highlighting the company’s emphasis on wildlife and conservation. The 108 page brochure encompasses Central and South America, and showcases iconic wilderness areas like the Amazon, Patagonia and Galapagos, as well as archaeological sites and cultural experiences.
“South America offers incredible diversity so there is something for everyone” says Natural Focus CEO Steve Cameron, “Consequently our destination specialists are able to design an itinerary to suit every one of our clients, whether they want to climb a mountain in Patagonia, visit a vineyard, spot jaguars in Brazil, or cruise the Galapagos.”
New for 2019 is a 6 day Puma Tracking experience in the Torres Del Paine National Park in Chilean Patagonia. Guests will explore this spectacularly beautiful area by 4WD and on foot with an expert tracking team in search of these big cats, returning at night to a comfortable wilderness lodge. The warmer months of October to February are usually the most popular time to visit this area, but the best time to search for pumas is May to August – the “Secret Season”, making Patagonia a year-round destination. Both fixed and private departures are available and prices start from $9279 per person twin share ex Punta Arenas.
Now in its 18th year of publication, the brochure showcases a range of unique lodges and eco-camps in pristine areas, ranging from Mashpi Lodge in the Amazon Rainforest, one of National Geographic’s Unique Lodges of the World, to the extraordinarily sited Explora Patagonia in Chile’s Torres Del Paine National Park.
A new addition for 2019 is the ultra-luxurious retreat Vik Chile in the world renowned VIK vineyard, just two and a half hours from Santiago.
The Natural Focus program also features small ship cruises through the icefields of southern Patagonia, and luxury yachts and catamarans in the Galapagos, such as the M/V Origin, the only member of the esteemed Relais & Chateau collection.
Rail journeys are increasingly popular and clients can explore Peru by train, travelling from historic Cusco to the fabled ‘lost city’ of Machu Picchu, or mysterious Lake Titicaca. There are five different trains to choose from, such as the romantic Belmond Hiram Bingham or the popular Vistadome, whilst the Belmond Andean Explorer is South America’s first luxury sleeper with sumptuous guest cabins and gourmet meals served in the plush dining car.
