Birding Danube Delta, Romania
399

A 4-day birdwatching tour including 3 boat tours (around 6 hours per day) in the Danube Delta with guide searching for birds, animals and landscapes with 3 nights accommodation, all meals with traditional fish dishes.

Day 1
Arrival

Arrival. After you make yourself confortable you can have dinner. Before or after dinner you can take a little walk nearby. During this walk you can see our village and the Danube shores.

After dinner we will discuss, over a glass of local wine, some little details about our behaviour and safety during the boat trip.

Day 2
Meet the Danube Delta!

After breakfast we will go to the boat (5 minutes walk till there).

The trip lasts about 6 hours.

During the tour you'll have the chance to see lot of birds: the Kingfisher, White-tailed Eagles, Pelicans, Purple heron, Grey heron, Squacco Heron, White egret, Little egret, Cormorants, Mute swan, Glossy ibis, lot of Dutchs species, Mallard, Goose and many others.

We may also see The East Asian raccoon dog, Wild cats, Wild boars, Eurasian otter etc.

On returning you will have lunch consisting of traditional fish dishes.

After you rest, we recommend you take a walk on the Bestepe Hill Natural Reserve, wich offers you a nice panorama of the entire Danube Delta and a lot of landscapes. The reserve is one of the rare protected areas where steppe meadows are found on both limestone and siliceous substrates, which increases the total number of plant species.

If you’re lucky, you can take some photos of a very spectacular sunset.

We plan the activities for the next day.

Day 3
Lets discover more!

Today, after the breakfast, we will go in some new areas of the Danube Delta. You can discover lakes and tunnel channels. You will not feel that the 6 hours trip is over and the lunch, near a glass of our traditional romanian wine will prepare you for discussions about your new love, the Danube Delta.

Day 4
Good bye my love!

Enjoy the breakfast.

We have time to remember the joy of the last days.

    We had an amazing holiday at Bunica Maria, the hosts were friendly and very knowledgeable about the area. The hotel was well equipped, clean, comfortable and had everything we needed. The food was excellent and was all local produce. The guided boat trips where just amazing, the guide very knowledgeable about the wildlife and an incredible number of birds to be seen.

How do you support local communities during this tour?

First of all we are a local young family with two children, who decided to go back home, closer to nature, to traditions and healthy culture. Our employes are also local people. In our area is a high school with tourism profile. We have a contract with them to prepare children for this industry. We make internships 2-3 months in the summer. Is our support for the community. Doing this we want to help local children to remain home for the future, to have a job home. At this moment lots of them are leaving the town or the country. In the summer, we offer training for a student from the local school.

Do you met the minimum criteria of Responsible travel standard?

A very important point is to help local people to understand the real value of their living place, the real value of the Danube Delta, as not only a living place, but a very important place for the world. We hired local people and we collaborate with the local school, preparing the students(aprentice ships) for a future in a responsible tourism. We serve only home made dishes, in the most traditional way. We use solar panel for whater heating. We use binoculars in our trips, as the birds can be seen, but not to be distrurb. We use LED bulbs in the building; We separate the plastic botles from the rest of the garbage. Before leaving in a tour, we have a few minutes of discussion with the tourists(something like a little training) about the environment: do not harm flowers, we will now stay close by birds that's why we are using binoculars, do not leave the garbage in the area, keep silence, use your life-vest etc. Local projects that we visit include the near by ecological reconstruction zone Carasuhat. The project is sustained by WWF.
