A marvellous day out of Seville with a fantastic guide who knew so much about the local wildlife and entertained us well with his knowledge. Donana is a not to miss part of a trip to Seville and Andalusia
This was a really enjoyable tour travelling through incredible countryside Donana is spectacular. The variety of tress, and the coexistence of umbrella pines and cork oaks was, for me, a new and very illuminating experience. It was also very interesting to note the variety of horticulture and agriculture in the Natural Park next to the National Park. We also visited El Rocio - novel to say the least.
Our guide was very knowledgeable and informative.
I would suggest that this is perhaps not an appropriate trip for the 'tick box' individual as we didn't see an Iberian Lynx! Maybe these 'tourists' could camp out in a tree for a week or so....... and keep their fingers crossed.
Amazing experience thanks to a very knowledgeable and friendly guide - Abraham who holds a Bachelors Degree in Environmental Science! After spending the morning in the national park walking through cork and umbrella pine forest, it was fantastic to get to the beach facing the Atlantic right when the sun was starting to get hot. If you like nature, beach, and want to do something different, off the beaten track - pick this tour!
This was a great trip. The guide was excellent, and we got to see all kinds of awesome wildlife.
Great day out with excellent guides. Guide had really effective telescope but taking own binoculars or camera with telephoto lens really helps. Nice fellow travellers and guides.
It was an excellent experience, with a fantastically well informed local guide, I thoroughly enjoyed the trip from my Hotel pick up to return. Can highly recommend the tour
We were fortunate to have two wonderful naturalist guides who greatly enhanced our visit to Donana. Although we visited in March under a drought, we added several dozen new birds to our list, as well as Spanish red deer and striped wild boar. We were excited to learn about cork trees. We visited the beautiful church in the village of El Rocio. We would definitely repeat this tour and would arrange to stay in El Rocio multiple days to extend the visit to Donana. A great experience!
We loved this small group tour.
Very enjoyable trip. First part was round wetland marshes which was good for spotting birds. Next rough and bumpy ride through pine forest with lovely scenery. After lunch stop we went to dunes for a short walk to see wild flowers and then to El Roccio - a fascinating old town like something out of a spaghetti western with sand streets and hitching posts outside the houses. A very varied and interesting experience.
This tour was a great success due, in large part, to our driver/guide, Sergio. His knowledge of flora and fauna is extensive and accurate and he is able to present it in a manner that is neither didactic nor patronizing. He went to some trouble to seek out animals, as their whereabouts are uncertain and they cannot be seen by appointment! Not only did our tour take us to Donana National Park, but we also visited the town of El Rocio and the magnificent sand dunes and beach at Matalascanas. All of the above made for a wonderful and memorable full day tour. The one drawback about this tour was the vehicle, which was a very old Land Rover Defender. It was uncomfortable, difficult to get into and out of for seniors, had poor visibility and a broken hand hold for the passenger behind the driver. We realize that a four- wheel drive vehicle, with low gear availability, is essential for such a trip but know that there are better options in today's market.
I enjoyed the tour and it got me out of the city. We did not see much wildlife in the park. During the bird migration it would have been much better.
