Iberian Lynx
World’s most threatened wild cat. Only present in Spain and more recently back in Portugal thanks to a reintroduction project. Just around 330 individuals are left in the wild in southern Spain's two main populations - Andujar, in centre-east Sierra Morena, and Doñana.
Spanish Imperial Eagle
World’s third rarest eagle and an Iberian endemic. Around ten pairs survive in the restricted area of Doñana National Park.
White-headed Duck
One of the rarest ducks that can be seen in Spain, due to its low numbers.
Black-winged Kite
The southwest of Spain holds a high density of this beautiful small bird of prey. It is new on the Spanish list, having been identified within the region in the last 40 years.
Short-toed Eagle
This snake-eater is one of the most impressive raptors in Europe. Formerly a summer visitor, more individuals now stay over the winter in the south of Spain.
Collared Pratincole
Nice-looking migrant that loves to nest on clay. The Collared Pratincole usually performs well for the camera.
Audouin’s Gull
Probably one of the prettiest gulls in the world. Their expansion to the west of the Mediterranean makes them easy to see in the Odiel Marshes.
Griffon Vulture
Have you ever experienced a vultures’ feast? You do not need to get to Africa to watch it!
Purple Swamphen
This funny-looking bird is easy to see if you know where to look. Known to some locals as the “blue cockerel”.
Eurasian Spoonbill
The Odiel Marshes Biosphere Reserve holds the largest colony of European Spoonbills on Earth with around 30% of total population.

In Wild Doñana, nature is not just our business, it is our way of life. Our team of guides is made up of passionate young people who have fallen in love with nature, either because they grew up in natural surroundings or they had an experience that sparked their interest in the natural world.

All our guides were involved in conservation projects before they began working as guides, and they still are. Our main goal is the preservation of the species and habitats we show people on our tours, through ecotourism and promoting sustainable development.

As part of our work, we take the following actions:

  • We monitor bird rings/bands and report to the Doñana Biological Station to support their conservation work.
  • We actively participate in many local initiatives and conservation projects as volunteers.
  • We work with Park Rangers and Wildlife Officers to fight wildlife crime.
  • We spread the word about conservation amongst the farmers and other local people to promote a positive attitude to nature in the local community.
  • Our activities also bring extra income to the area through ecotourism. This helps to give local people a sense of the value of their natural heritage.
  • Our guides not only speak about natural history but also about the history of Spain and the area’s local traditions and culture. Humans are part of nature and we believe it is important to count on ethnography for habitat conservation.

In our commitment to reduce the impact generated by our tourism activity, these are our sustainability achievements:

  1. We recycle as much as possible of our waste generated during our excursions.
  2. We have reduced the use of plastics. We do not provide the customers with glass rather than bottles, filled with healthy tap water.
  3. We have reduced the use of the vehicles to save fuel and pollution and have adapted our itineraries to spend as much time as we can out of the vehicles.
  4. We have developed a programme of educational work. We go to schools and take the children out to show them what we do and the amazing wildlife around them.
  5. We volunteer in local conservation projects – bird ringing, chameleon, bat and otter surveys, plus removal of non-native flora at local nature reserves.

We are registered as Outdoor and Ecotourism operators by the Tourism Department of the Andalusian Government and belong to several business and guides organisations that work for the improvement of the local communities from a sustainable point of view. We belong to:

  • Partnership of Ecotourist Operators of Doñana National Park.
  • Federation of Outdoor and Ecotourism Operators of Andalucia.
  • Association of Guides of Doñana National Park
  • Association of Professional Nature Guides of Spain.
  • Members of the Andalucia Bird Society and we are approved guides by their quality standards.

Opticron logo As part of our ongoing efforts to promote nature conservation and wildlife watching, we are proud to be sponsored by Opticron, a UK-based company that not only manufactures high quality optics but has a serious commitment to wildlife and local communities. That is why their list of Partnership Conservation Programmes is ever-growing (further information on projects supported by Opticron HERE).

    The Wild Donana team are excellent. The tours are well planned and Manu and Maria are not only skilled and knowledgeable spotters but take extra care to ensure that everyone on the trip gets the best experience. We will be returning.

    I had a briliant day with Manu six years ago and have now just returned from Spain having had two excellent trips with Maria. Just as Manu did last time, Maria demonstrated really good local knowledge and very keen eyesight ! She was friendly and helpful, making sure everyone got the most of the .day Lots of birds sighted including Black and Griffon vultures, three types of Eagle (including Bonelli's), Blue Rock Thrush etc. Highly recommended.

    Manu picked us up from the hotel on the day of our trip...the hotel made a packed lunch for us... he took us back at the end of the day after seeing an incredible amount of birds. We enjoyed our bird watching trip with Manu so much we booked another day out with him before we got back to our hotel. He is very knowledgeable about the area, the wildlife, (especially the birds) the culture and the history, a particular interest for my husband. We had access to places which are not open to the public, an amazing opportunity to view the wildlife in very natural and undisturbed habitat. There is so much to see in the area that we can't wait for our next visit.

    We had a great day of winter birding with Maria Harana. She was extremely knowledgeable about the history, ecology and birds of Donana. Her enthusiasm never waned. She was patient with the "non-birders" among us, made sure everyone saw every bird, and had great eyes and ears -- even while driving. We learned much and had a very pleasant day with Maria. Winter, of course, is not the greatest time for birding in Donana… but it was when we were visiting Spain, so we took a chance. It definitely paid off. Thanks to Maria, we got good looks at 66 species, including some wonderful rarities. Donana is tricky. Unlike national parks in America and other places we have been, people are not allowed in the inner portion of the region, which is technically the "National Park". Around the perimeter is a maze of roads through the agricultural lands. Having someone who knows where the birds are, and how to reach them is a great advantage at this location. And, Maria really made it special.

    On 25th September 2018 I went on a one-day bird watching tour to Donaña with a grouop guided by Manu Mojarro. It was one of the best days bird watching of my life. Our guide was brilliant; engaging, extremely knowledgeable and able to 'find' birds in an almost magical way. As a result we got wonderful sightings of numerous species, both common and uncommon. Stand out siting was a close up of a Fan-tailed warbler, not a rare or stunning looking bird, but it's rare to get such a view. Although Donaña is a world-famous bird watching destination, our visit was made special due to our guide. Highly recommended.

    We did not see a Lynx but we felt we knew them well after finding fresh tracks and droppings and because of Maria's excellent presentation of their life and habits in the Donana park. The birdwatching was the best bird day we have ever done, counting 75 species including some very special sightings e.g bittern, cisticola, common crane, marbled duck, booted eagle, hen harrier, black winged kite, peregrine, spoonbill, griffon vulture, wryneck, and some lovely views of kingfisher, barn owls and little owls and even a mongoose. Thank you Maria for a brilliant day
