Birding Doñana National Park and Sierra de Andújar Natural Park
This is a 7-days Doñana Birdwatching & Sierra de Andújar Tour which is relaxed paced and available on request. Visiting Doñana National Park and Sierra de Andújar Natural Park with the assistance of our expert guide in both areas will be one of those trips you will not easily forget.
The Doñana National Park (formerly Coto Doñana) brings together some of the most interesting habitats in southern Europe, Mediterranean forest, dune chains and, of course, a large wetland where large numbers of waterfowl from all over the continent are concentrated.
For its part, the natural park of the Sierra de Andújar is the hard core of the conservation of the Iberian lynx, habitat also of species such as the imperial eagle, the black vulture and other mammals and birds that you will not want to miss (deer, fallow deer, golden eagle, otter, mountain goat and more).
We propose you know in depth the fauna of these two natural areas, with the biologist Silvia Medina as a guide. And we do it on specific dates (see dates below) distributed from October to April, at times when the combination of both areas is more interesting. Five days of observation to get the most out of your visit.
