Southern Spain, with its hospitable climate, is a must for nature lovers, and Andalucía wildlife tours are full of interesting species. From the wetlands of Doñana National Park, teeming with life in spring and autumn, to the Straits of Gibraltar for an awe-inspiring avian migration experience, there is much to delight the keen birder.
This is also the place for unforgettable cetacean watching, as whales and dolphins cruise through the narrow straits on their way to and from the Mediterranean – examples of a great Andalucía wildlife experience. And along the province’s coasts there is a wealth of exciting seabirds, including Balearic, Cory´s and Scopoli´s Shearwaters.
If you are interested in finding Iberian Lynx then Andalucía wildlife tours into the interior can deliver. The Sierra de Andújar Natural Park, northeast of Córdoba, has a semi-mountainous landscape where not only Lynx but Iberian Wolves roam. It is also home to Wild Boar, Egyptian Mongoose, Genets and Eurasian Otters.
This is one of the few remaining places in Spain for Iberian Lynx and there is an active conservation programme there that you can learn about on an Andalucía wildlife holiday. The Sierra de Andújar Natural Park is an interesting spot for botanists, too, because of its native Mediterranean plants, aromatic shrubs, many types of herbs and unspoilt oak woodlands.
Further east, near the Costa del Sol, the woodlands of Los Alcornocales Natural Park contain Europe’s largest Cork Oak forest. This mountainous area between Cadiz and Malaga is important for the many reptiles, amphibians and bats that inhabit its caves and crags. There are also some 18 different types of birds of prey there to encounter on Andalucía wildlife tours, such as Bonelli’s and Booted Eagles, Eagle Owls and Egyptian Vultures.
In fact, birds of prey abound all over Andalucía and sightings of Lammergeier, Black Vultures, Imperial Eagles, Golden Eagles, among many others, can be arranged.
The southern tip of Spain is one of the last places in Europe before crossing to Africa. So Andalucía wildlife tours can also include a daytrip to Morocco.
For more information and to choose a wildlife holiday to Andalucía, consult one of the Blue Sky Wildlife local experts. They can advise on the best time to go and the most productive places for the species you want to see.
