2022 Peru Vicuña Safari Adventure
Go on a trip of a lifetime…
Enjoy Arequipa’s finest restaurants and great accommodations before visiting Casa Chapi, the Condor Cross, and moving into the world famous Mallkini Estancia. The food and accommodations in Cusco will please the most discriminating traveler.
Attend the world premiere of Quechua Benefit’s documentary, Vicuña Salvation, shot in Picotani at the very focal point of your adventure. See the film for the first time, surrounded by the stars of the show!
Participate in the largest “Chaccu” or roundup of vicuña in the world. Tour Picotani’s Water Conservation Project, expanded vicuña habitat, and the bofedales that sequester more carbon from the atmosphere than the Amazon Rainforest, in the fight against global warming.
Visit Cusco, the Sacred Valley, and Machu Picchu. All of this with personal insights from an elite tour guide and years of Quechua Benefit experience.
