Description

An Antilope Refugee, run by the government. You can visit it by just popping in and waiting at the gate for someone to show you around (could take a while for someone to recognize you, it's a huge area). About 1km off the Highway. 2WD accessible. It's free (we gave the employee 50 pesos as kind of tip). Employees are very friendly and you probably get a ride on their truck to see the wildlife. Absolutely worth it and not really a well known tourist attraction.

We also entered the place. The guy said they don’t want it as tourist place but those who find it come and they are welcome, it felt little bit uncomfortable for me but we made great shots of the berrendos

Report Check-In

we drove up to the gate after closing time of the refugee and spend the night there. felt like we blended in quite nicely with the gate so we wouldn't be very noticeable from the road. in the morning some rangers drove in and out the refugee past us, but noone bothered us. they just waved and smiled. nothing spectacular but a good sleep, that felt pretty low key and not attention drawing.

Thank you iOverlander for guiding us. ;)
As said, sandy road in good condition (50km/h) for 2-3 km leads you to the parking lot. The man on duty brought us to the antilopes and shared some information.
New babies arrive at this time of year. We were lucky to see the first one at the same time as the guide.
We gave 50mxp. It seemed unexpected.

Report Check-In

Cool place to learn a lot about a native species. I had a guide named Enrique who spoke both English and Spanish and he explained a lot about the antelope and their environment. There is a museum onsite that is currently under construction, but I got to look around that as well.

interesting visit, captive breeding of berrendos, currently about 100 in large compounds with a small release program on 22000 ha, part govt, part private sponsors. No charge but left a tip, the caretaker took us round in his truck.
