Bolivia Dove Hunting
Los Guaduales Lodge
As most wingshooters know, Bolivia offers hot barrel dove shooting without the lengthy travel time required for any other South American shooting locale. Trek’s travel experts have arranged for you to shoot incredibly high-volume dove while staying in the utmost luxury at the lodge.
The season opens in April, so do not delay booking your spot as this place is going to fill quickly and the last thing you want is to hear all about it from your buddy! As always, your adventure travel experts here at Trek will assist you in planning the perfect trip at the best possible price.
Although airfare is not included, the best way to get to Bolivia is on American Airlines, offering daily flights to Santa Cruz, out of Miami. Currently the itinerary is for an overnight flight to Santa Cruz, via La Paz, Bolivia. When you arrive into Santa Cruz, you will be met by a member of Jorge’s staff who’ll assist you through customs and then provide the 90 minute ground transfer to Los Guaduales. After lunch and getting settled in, your group will have time to relax before you head out to shoot late this afternoon. The next two, or three days will be full shooting days, with one of the morning shoot being a bonus pigeon shoot. As the drives to the fields are relatively short, we will return to the lodge in the midday for a relaxing lunch and siesta before shooting the late afternoon flight. The last lodge day you will shoot the morning, before having lunch and being transferred back to Santa Cruz where you will spend this final night. The last morning, you will be met at the hotel and be transferred to the airport for your morning departure, arriving back into Miami in the late afternoon.
Whether you want to shoot in the fields, along a flyway, or near the roost, Jorge Molina and his team can orchestrate a Bolivia dove hunting trip and it won’t be far away. The shooting is extraordinary, as the sky is literally darkened by doves poring out of their roosts in the mornings and back in the afternoons. Also offered at no additional charge is an option to hunt pigeon on one of your hunts.
Long time Trek partner Jorge Molina spent the last two years planning, constructing, and personally overseeing all aspects of his soon to be opened Los Guaduales Lodge. This majestic, 20,000 square foot lodge was designed to pamper the most discerning of clients, all while maintaining the family feel that has always been Jorge’s trademark and still offering amazing Bolivia dove hunting.
Guaduales offers spacious single rooms with king sized beds, a magnificent enlarged bar, as well as a game room. There is an entire spa with masseuse, wet & dry sauna, steam room and Jacuzzi that is perfect for relaxing that sore shoulder and getting you ready for the next day’s action. This is simply the first lodge in Bolivia offering these levels of amenities, and it must be seen to be believed.
