Iberian Lynx Tour
835

This 5-day tour will take you into the Natural Park of Sierras de Andujar, in search of the Iberian Lynx. As a local company, Iberian Lynx Land has been afforded the opportunity to enter private estates, collaborating with the landowners in the conservation of this threatened species.

Day 1
Day 01

You’ll be met in the town of Andujar. Transfer to your hotel in Sierras de Andujar Natural Park. Once you have settled in, we might

make our first visit to one of the several viewing areas in the hope of finding an Iberian Lynx. Who knows, we might get lucky on our first attempt! So we'll go in search of our target in one of the best areas for wildlife. This is also a great place to enjoy along with the local territorial Spanish Imperial eagle and other raptors like Golden eagle and Black vulture. Other species we hope to see are Kingfisher, Yellow wagtail, Iberian green woodpecker, Great spotted woodpecker, Short-toed Treecreeper, Hawfinch, Great cormorant, Grey heron… In the dusk we’ll drive back to our hotel to relax after a long day, and get ready to enjoy the

local gastronomy.

Day 2
Day 2

After an early breakfast, we’ll drive into the natural park. On the way to our watchpoints, we’ll cross a private estate where we can see fighting bulls next to the road. A little further ahead we’ll stop to look for our feline, by scanning from vantage points overlooking the dehesa. At lunchtime, we'll set up our picnic lunch just by the river, near the dam of a reservoir, a good spot which overlooks the gully. After lunch, we'll continue to the main dam, and then walk over the massive concrete bridge. Here we can find some interesting birds such as Blue Rock Thrush, Crag Martin, Rock bunting, Red-billed chough. There is also a short tunnel at the end of the dam, where we hope to see some species of bats: Whiskered, Daubenton’s, Schreiber’s and Great Mouse-eared Bats.

Day 3
Day 3

Two more days we’ll spend all our time - specially early morning and late afternoon - looking for this elusive animal and enjoying the wildlife from the best watchpoints.

Day 4
Day 4

As above

Day 5
Day 5

Last chance to see "the cat". After breakfast, and depending on your available time, we'll drive back to one of the watchpoints, with our focus always on getting Iberian Lynx. Our fifth day will provide us the last chance to find the lynx again, although hopefully by then we will have had good views of this feline during the previous days.

    Jose Luis, Miguel, and all associated with Iberian Lynx Land including hotel staff and local friends should be amazingly proud of how they guided our tour this last week. I entrusted their expertise to guide my self and a group of 6 clients in search of the worlds most elusive cat.. The Iberian Lynx! And they did not disappoint with 3 different individual seen throughout our safari. Not just the Lynx but the conservation efforts behind the species, the history, the now and the future these guys really were hands on. A TRUE eco-tourism company. The whole group were very impressed with the knowledge of the local biodiversity and history of the landscapes. Which allowed us to see not just the Lynx but also a huge array of Spanish wildlife including several vultures, woodland birdlife, flora and close up views of the magnificent Spanish Imperial Eagle!!! In Jose, I formed a grand friendship and professional relationship which will last a lifetime. Thank you for everything, even when I was so seriously ill during much of the trip, you guys did everything to make me well again, and keep my fighting on. I can not thank you enough. See you again very soon...

    This tour was excellent in so many ways,Jose was a superb guide not only finding us 3 Lynx to view but so many other mammals including Red and Fallow Deer,otter,3 species of bats,a snake and over 50 species of birds in just 2 days. The accommodation at La Caracola hotel was also excellent with a pool and they provided electric hook up for our camper van The whole trip was well worth the cost and would highly recommend it to anyone oterested in wildlife
