Rancho Salvaje Safari invites you to enjoy a true adventure
Rancho Salvaje began as the enthusiastic project of Daniel and Anabella in 1990, driven by Daniels passion for hunting and his desire to share Argentina with the world
We have a large variety of wildlife in more than 85,000 LOW FENCED hectares (200,000+ acres) including red deer, european wild boar, axis deer, black antelope, water buffalo, wild goats, mouflon, ram, puma, and fallow deer.
The red deer hunting season during the roar is from March to April, and can be combined with the dove and pigeon hunting.
Combining big game and small game
Our proximity to the Big Game and Small Game Lodge (1 hour by truck), allows us to offer mixed programs in which we can enjoy full days of small game (Ducks, Dove, Pigeons, Wood Partridge and Partridge) with the hunting of animals (Axis Deer, Red Stag, Russian Boar, Black Antelope, Buffalo, Mouflon, etc)
Due to the abundance of rivers and vegetation, mild climate, and adequate rains, Argentina is the perfect environment for the population of feathered hunting species. With more than twelve varieties of ducks, three varieties of partridges, an unimaginable number of doves, and the amazing pigeon hunting makes us a favorite destination, combining all these species in one place.
We can customize your hunt!

The steps are the following:
– Hunters who wish to bring semi-automatic weapons must obtain a permit at the Argentine Consulate in their country, before traveling to Argentina. If the weapon is double barrel or O/U, they do not need consular permission.
– The hunters must provide us with all the information about the weapon, and a copy of the consular permit.
– Hunters must provide us with a copy of their passport, address and telephone number.
– When they arrive in Argentina, they must go to the National Registry of Arms to obtain the permit to enter with their weapons. They must pay the stipulated rate in cash (approximately $70 depending on the exchange rate at that time).
– There are no controls on bow and arrows entering the country
Rancho Salvaje Safari has semi-automatic shotguns, 12 and 20 caliber, Benelli and Beretta, also left-handed shotguns. Shotguns are rented per day.
Rifles for big game are included in the program. We have all the calibers because the owner is a guide and hunter fond of weapons, therefore depending on the trophy you will have a rifle with the corresponding caliber.
The big game trophies will be exported through an Argentine broker, who will contact the broker you decide in your country and that will carry out the process for you. The first preparation of the skin is done on the hunting ground, then we send it to the broker in Buenos Aires who will be in charge of finalizing the preparation of the trophies and sending them. He will contact you for payments and shipping costs. We have no responsibility for shipments.
The clothes will depend on the place of hunting and the time of the year. The weather in winter is cold, therefore we recommend comfortable and strong shirts and pants, wool sweater, hat, gloves and a thick waterproof jacket for morning duck hunts. Bring your own waders if possible, as quality waders in Argentina are hard to find. With regard to footwear, we recommend short waterproof boots for long partridge walks.
Argentina uses 220 volts, with 3-pin sockets.
