Where on Earth do You Want to go?
Field Journal | Jan. 09, 2024
Our team at Trek International Safaris is tracking a number of indicators pointing to a terrific year for the international sporting industry in 2024. Trek’s 2024 Adventure Catalog highlights some of these positive developments, including Trek’s partnerships with some exciting new lodges, increased international route expansion among major U.S. air carriers and the stabilization of global cartridge supplies.
It’s simply not possible to give our outfitter partners enough credit for all they’ve done to overcome the challenges we’ve faced during the past few years. Longtime Trek partners like H&H Outfitters and Bolivian Adventures, as well as new partners at Estancia Santa Clara and De Bernadis Hunting, continually develop and re-invest even through times of adversity.
It is worth noting that, like Trek, these are all multi-generational family companies with a shared passion for providing our clients with a world- class adventure travel experience.
A great example of this is the work our partners did to handle the shell shortage last year. Endless hours were spent sourcing supply to keep our clients’ guns blazing without a single lodge operator closing for as much as one day last year.
Owing to this hard work and ingenuity, our key shooting destinations all of our lodge partners expect to have a sufficient supply of shells for the 2024 season.
In Argentina, the election of libertarian Javier Milei brings hope for a better future to a country with great potential that has been plagued by economic problems for decades.
Among the exciting new adventures you’ll find in this publication are a magnificent shooting estate in England (pg. 5), a terrific mixed bag estancia close to Buenos Aires (pg. 12) and a very rare opportunity for high- volume duck hunting in Paraguay pg. 18).
If angling is in your plans for 2024, check out page 37 and consider the thrill of checking the mighty arapaima off your bucket list. We also have a new tarpon and permit adventure within 30 minutes drive from Cancun (page 37).
There are 72 pages in Trek’s 2024 Adventure Catalog, but in reality, the opportunities are limitless. Trek provides you with the value of 51 years of experience, expertise and relationships at no added cost to you. So, the only question is: “Where on Earth do you want to go?”

Returning to Trek’s “Secret” Lagoon
In the early 1980s, Trek International Safaris Founder Bob Cloaninger identified a pristine saltwater lagoon located just 20 miles north of Cancun and stacked with gamefish. The term “hidden gem” is perhaps too often used in our industry these days, but the place was such an unknown entity at the time that Cloaninger rightfully touted […]
Family, Fishing and Fun in Costa Rica = The Best Father’s Day Ever
Trek and our partners in Los Suenos, Costa Rica, have your Father’s Day hook-up this June. And we can assure you the pun is not only intended, but also a certainty— as Los Suenos offers both an unparalleled blue-water fishing experience and a host of exciting activities that do not involve a rod and reel.
Morocco is THE Global Hotspot for Cultural and Sporting Adventure
Morocco is having a moment right now, as it sits atop nearly every published list of the hottest international destinations for adventure travel. Having experienced this majestic country extensively in planning and hosting adventures for numerous Trek client groups, we can confirm the acclaim is long overdue. Riding in a caravan of camels across the […]
Cordoba’s Dove Season Pause is an Investment in the Future
Cordoba, Argentina — Trek International Safaris is proud to support an agreement to a dove season contraction in Cordoba, Argentina, which all regional outfitters unanimously and voluntarily entered into last year. As a response to Argentina’s worst drought in a century in 2017-‘18, this agreement effectively pauses all dove hunting in the Cordoba province during […]

SIX REASONS WE LOVE BOLIVIA FOR SPORTING ADVENTURES
The picturesque country of Bolivia has long been a popular destination for adventurous anglers and wingshooters alike. A crown jewel among Brazil, Peru, Chile and Paraguay, this country is rich in agricultural and natural resources and lays claim to being one of the most biodiverse locations on earth. With altitudes ranging from just under 300 […]
WRAPPING UP AN INCREDIBLE Nicaragua Duck and Dove Season
From the questions the Trek team received during the recent SCI shows, one may have surmised the story of the 2018-19 Nicaragua duck and dove season actually played out in the spring of last year. In Reno and Dallas, we continued to receive a high volume of inquiries about the country’s sociopolitical climate; meanwhile an […]
What You Need to Know When Taking Your Guns To Argentina
Shortly after booking his first dove hunting trip to Córdoba last year, our client Mike asked about taking his own gun with him on the adventure. We typically recommend that our clients leave their guns behind when traveling to Argentina, to minimize stress and time required for the day of travel and customs experience. Having […]
Thirty Years of Peacocking: What We’ve Learned
“Bebê!” the guide exclaims in Portuguese, excitedly pointing to the water a few meters ahead of the boat. A succession of small bubbles rise up through the root beer-tinted water, each one delicately popping as it reaches the surface. On Brazil’s Rio Negro, this effervescence is an indication of baby peacock bass schooled up beneath […]
Nicaragua Teal: Early Season Update
Nicaragua Teal Season Off to Typically Strong Start Chinandega, Nicaragua — As the first major migration of ducks flock to their wintering home on Estero Palo Grande Lagoon in northwestern Nicaragua, Trek’s first groups of duck hunters of the 2018-2019 season are returning home with reports of robust blue-winged teal action. With Nicaragua’s rainy season […]
Argentina’s Fly Fishing Gold Rush
For anglers, Patagonia’s trout are unquestionably the fish species most closely associated with destination travel to Argentina. But if you prefer your sportfish with a more savage disposition capable of producing drag-melting runs and tarponian acrobatics, Argentina’s Paraná River is, quite literally, a gold mine. Golden dorado appear to have an inferiority complex about their […]
Onboard the Golden Eagle
Waking in Juneau you immediately feel in awe of the majestic mountains surrounding you – this is Alaska! After a morning of browsing this quaint town, I headed down to the dock to find the Golden Eagle. Well, seeing this beautiful 100 ft vessel across from the large cruise ships filled me with total excitement. I knew […]
