A stunning Estancia in Buenos Aires province, Las Viboras is a 9,000 hectare cattle ranch made up of Pampas, woodland and wetlands. The farm is the perfect example of an Argentine Estancia and is also the home to an abundance of wildlife including the rare Pampas Deer. Viboras is owned and run by the lovely sisters Guiga and Sandy who have resisted the advances of modern farming and kept the ranch in much the same way it has always been.

The farm is first and foremeost a cattle ranch and the gauchos work in much the same way they always have done. Like any farm it is impossible to predict what they will be doing on any given day. They could be riding out round the farm checking or herding cattle and sheep…
