A different take on wilderness is what Natural World Safaris (www.naturalworldsafaris.com) founder Will Bolsover proposes this October in Chile, where a small group will venture into Patagonia’s Torres del Paine National Park in pursuit of the Andean puma, accompanied by preeminent photographer and crack mountain guide Diego Araya. Guests will spend four days (from £1,850 per person) exploring the park’s eastern reaches (an advance team will be dispatched to track the cats for the most seamless sighting and snapping possible); nights will be spent savouring the lo-fi luxuries – firepit barbecues and starlight seen through geodesic-dome tents – of EcoCamp Patagonia (www.ecocamp.travel).
