FAQ

Some of the airlines we could recommend and their websites are: Aerolineas Argentinas, United Airlines, LATA, Lufhtansa, British Airways, Delta, Air France, Iberia, American Airlines, others.

What domestic flights are available in Argentina?

There are three possibilities, commercial, chartered and private flights:

• Commercial Flights:
Aerolíneas Argentinas is the only commercial flight that lands in Santa Rosa airport. Clients should book their domestic flight before departure from their country of origin and should plan their connecting international flights accordingly.

• Chartered Flights:
Terra Pampa has agreements with private airplane companies and is able to get very competitive fares for its clients, this airplane’s land is Santa Rosa. This service is more expensive than commercial airplanes but we believe they are more comfortable, flexible and at the same time allow our clients to see the landscape on their way to their final destination.

• Private Plane:
Terra Pampa has its own private airtrip approved for small commercial flights. It takes 1:30 hr from Buenos Aires to land in the ranch.

Are there any other means of transportation to the ranch?

Ground transportations: direct transfer by car, van from Ezeiza International Airport to the ranch or commercial bus from Buenos Aires could be a good and cheap option if you are expending a few days in Buenos Aires.

What kind of clothes should I bring?

Because of the wide temperature swings we recommend dressing in layers so that you can quickly add or shed layers depending on temperature change. For hunting during the day we recommend wearing comfortable camouflage hunting clothes and good quality waterproof hunting boots since it is common to walk for several hours around the bush. Warm clothing is essential for night hunts as the temperatures can drop significantly after the sun goes down. Gaiters are a must because of the ever present “rosetas” and all the other types of stickers, briars, thorns that seem to be present everywhere in the bush. Although it doesn’t rain much, a light set of rain gear is always a good to have along.

Will someone be waiting for me at the different airports?

If you require, Yes. All international flights will be arriving at Ezeiza International Airport. Once clients have cleared customs (and once they have declared their firearms if they are carrying one) they will be met in the main hall by Terra Pampa crew.

No, Argentina is free of any public health risks and is very safe for travel. However, anytime you travel to a foreign country you should check with the US Department of Health for updated information.

How is the process of exporting my trophies?

After the hunt we put you in touch with the exporting company that will send you an information request (name, destination of trophies, port of entry, import broker, etc), their fees and conditions and a quote for their exporting job. Once you agree with this we then take all trophies to Buenos Aires to the exporter warehouse who takes over and carries out the job in coordination with the import broker you have nominated. We follow up to make sure he delivers on time.
