ALLIGATOR SAFARIS
Face to face with alligators

Actually, you can observe the alligators – locally called Yacarés (caimans) – in the lodge’s natural park along the Iberá lagoon.

They reach a length of almost 3 meters and as in almost 30 years of the Iberá being a nature reserve they have got used to the presence of boats and canoes on the lagoon, they don’t hide or run. Especially on canoe safaris we can grant an extraordinary intense feeling of nature that overwhelms your senses and will find an eternal place in your memory.

The Yacaré encounters are exceptionally close and will enable you to observe the twinkle of their eyes and while their throats swell you´ll hear warning sounds like a long but silent sigh. You can even observe the way the black caimans’ lower canines pierce through the upper jaw, bright white and very sharp! Along our 2 to 3 hour boat or canoe safaris you will also be witness of the caiman’s nests that are being constructed by the female in December and January and where the cute babies will hatch their own eggs around March.

From the very first moment, baby Yacarés know to hunt by themselves. Sometimes they can be observed riding atop their mother’s back and head as she protects them for over 2 years.
