We are honoured to lead birdwatching tours to Doñana, widely considered the most important bird hotspot in Spain. Due to its strategic location between the continents of Europe and Africa and its proximity to the Strait of Gibraltar, Doñana's large expanse of salt marsh is a breeding ground as well as a transit point for thousands of European and African birds (aquatic and terrestrial), and hosts many species of migratory waterfowl during the winter. With over 300 different species of birds annually, birding in Doñana is a must for those birders visiting Spain.
ITINERARY: Multiple options are available when it comes to birding in Doñana. No worries, we will choose the best option considering your expectations and target wildlife. A multiple day tour allows us to explore the banks of the Guadalquivir and the shoreline as well. Pick up and drop off can be arranged in Seville and Ronda at no cost.
