Through the lens: Bolivian wilderness 4WD adventure

  • Bolivian Wilderness 4WD Adventure

It started in San Pedro de Atacama in the far North of the Chilean desert. The trip was four days of 4WD travel to Uyuni, seeing the sights of the amazing landscape along the way. The sights included lakes, geysers, wildlife, salt flats and some very unique accomodation.

Dakar Bolivia.

This trip runs from San Pedro de Atacama to Uyuni, but can be done in reverse. It’s a few hundred US dollars, pretty much the best value trip going around. Be prepared for high altitude as the first few days are 4000m above sea level. Can be rough.

Digital stuff:
Sony RX 100mi
GoPro Hero 4 Silver
