The Lodge.


The lodge is located in an isolated corner once roamed by gauchos and pioneers about 40 miles southwest of the Santiago del Estero airport. Amakela looks out to the distant vast plains of Santiago del Estero, where hills covered with bushy green woods emerge and a lush, verdant backdrop comes to life. This dry, semi-arid landscape is home to a vast array of wild fauna, making for top-quality big-game and small-game hunts.

Amakela Lodge features seven remarkably comfortable ensuite rooms perfectly suitable for groups as large as 12. All rooms are double and equipped with high-speed Internet access. The lodge houses a comfortable living room with a nearby bar, a recreation room and a large outdoor terrace dining room.

After a long day of hunting, our guests can slow down with an exclusive massage or a swim in our outdoor pool and jacuzzi, or enjoy a relaxed evening at our recreation room, that includes a TV screen with sofas and a pool table.

In the evening, our guests can enjoy exquisite chef-prepared meals complimented by the finest Argentine wines. These gourmet meals are served in the cozy outdoor living room where the scenic Guasayan Hills and Santiago del Estero’s dry, vast plains tower in the background.

In addition, we have a paddle court and a driving range for golf practice.

Culinary experience.

You can expect a traditional and unforgettable Argentine gastronomic experience executed by our team of experienced cooks that specialize in preparing the hunting game, including traditional Argentinian flavors.

Our kitchen uses only fresh and local products, including fruit, vegetables, and meats. Combining these elements, we create delicious flavors and varied textures that harbor hidden stories and package traditions on each plate like our Argentinian asados and our famed beef.
