EcoCamp Patagonia Guest Comments
Jenny Calvert, USA (Wildlife Safari)
Jenny travelled to EcoCamp in November to do a Patagonia Wildlife Safari. Read all about her experience here on her blog post Torres del Paine - Not the Truman show!
"As we were entering Torres del Paine National Park in Southern Chile, I commented to Kristie -something to the effect of – this reminds me of the Truman Show; I’m not sure it’s real. And after leaving, I’m still not sure it was all real. I’m going to have to go back someday to make sure, because if any place deserves to be added to the list of places to which I’d like to return someday, this is one."

We're back home and I just wanted to say thanks to you for helping us to set up a wonderful trip! We're very tired, but we had a fantastic time everyplace we went. Ecocamp in particular was an amazing experience - the views and the animals are simply incredible, and the staff are really a great bunch of folks!

We'd like to add a big thanks to Scott for supplying us with INCREDIBLE photos of a puma spotted at the eastern end of Lake Nordenskjold. What an amazing treat for him and his Safari group!

Our EcoCamp experience was clearly the highlight of our 10 day Patagonia visit and one of the best of our many years of international travel. We loved everything about EcoCamp, even though we had one day of mostly heavy rain. We want to give Corinne Nanzer and her staff the highest praise possible. They were superb in every way: Cheerful, helpful, hardworking, friendly, polity, funny, punctual...and so much more. Corinne's management is outstanding and her quiet, effective leadership set an excellent example the staff enthusiastically followed.
Our dome suite was wonderfully clean with firewood arriving daily in a timely manner. The food was excellent and professionally presented and served. The guides, especially Rafael, were extremely knowledgeable, patient and very conscious of everyone's interest and safety. And becasue the staff's collective attitude and service were first class, the guests were also cheerful and happy. It was a once-in-a-lifetime experience. We'll never forget it.

I would just like to thank you for all your help in arranging such a good holiday at Cascada’s Ecocamp at Torres del Paine. I can really say that everything; service, food and drink, the ecotent and last but not least the work of the guide, was excellent. I can strongly recommend your travel company!

We had an incredible time. What an adventure - one of the hardest things I have ever done, and so rewarding. Cascada is a wonderful company. I hope our paths cross again sometime.

Overall, my experience was wonderful. The facilities were a perfect mix between comfortable and unusual. It was clear that the EcoCamp is as devoted to a sustainable presence as it claims. The staff was friendly and helpful, and I felt welcomed by them. The location was unbeatable, with excellent hiking nearby. By the end of my stay, I didn't want to leave; I'm hoping to return again someday with my family.
