Trip report and wildlife checklist available.
Departures anytime from January to December.

One of the world’s best known images of Argentina comes from the "Pampas” grasslands. Although it is the country’s most developed region, it still maintains vast expanses of wilderness and birds are tame and abundant. Our tour will take us birding near the capital city of Buenos Aires, and then down to the small beach town of San Clemente, by the Atlantic Ocean shore. As we drive through this nearly flat terrain, we'll explore grasslands, marshes, mudflats and woods adjacent to the "Río de la Plata" estuary. Our ultimate destination is Punta Rasa migratory bird reserve, a sandy peninsula that divides the River Plata from the Atlantic Ocean. We will also visit some private “estancias”, cattle ranches typical of the region, where farming is a friendly activity for wildlife.
