    On 24th and 25th April, we enjoyed the best two wildlife excursions we have ever had. From Ubeda, Jose Luis Sanchez of Iberian Lynx Land, took us to the Sierra Andujar and Sierra Magina Natural Parks in his four wheel drive vehicle for some magical encounters with a range of animals. Jose found lynx, otter, red deer, ibex, several species of bat and a huge range of birds, many of which were "firsts" for me. Jose has a tremendous knowledge of the natural landscape surrounding Ubeda and is passionate about its wildlife. He is also an expert tracker (I cannot imagine one better) and does not like to be beaten when it comes to searching for specific species. In the Sierra Andujar, he was constantly looking for signs of lynx and when he spotted one, he had it in the scope in seconds, giving us a beautiful view view of a male lynx. When the animal moved out of sight, Jose Luis was able to follow its progress from the alarm calls of magpies until he spotted it again, on the other side of the track, where it was joined by a female. We watched them lying under some holm oaks for some time. A wonderful experience. Jose showed us Golden Eagle, Spanish Imperial Eagle and Bonelli's Eagle among a bird list too numerous to mention. He also provided a picnic on each day, one of which was laid out in a glorious position in view of a Bonelli's Eagle nest site. In the Sierra Magina, I asked Jose if we could see orchids and within 30 minutes we had visited two sites and I had photographed five species of orchid. We came away with beautiful pictures and memories of all the wildlife seen. Jose offers every help to clients. He booked our hotel for us and gave lots of general advice on sights to see in and around Ubeda. We would give him and Iberian Lynx Land the highest recommendation.

    We had a full day tour in the National Park with our guide Tomas, he was very knowledgeable about the flora and fauna within the Park. The whole experience was one of the best we have had. The animals we sighted were, Fallow Deer, Foxes, Squirrels, Andalucian Ibex, Griffin Vulture, Motagu's Harrier, Golden Eagle, Hoopoe. The best park of the trip was the Griffin Vultures nesting site. The birds came within 5 metres of us, awe inspiring. I would recommend the Safari to anyone, it is different to anything we have done before, but well worth it. A special thanks to Tomas.
