Huelva & Seville
Special tour with one main target: the world’s most endangered feline. Travel across the inside and the surrounding area of Doñana National Park in search of this elusive mammal.
Doñana is not only home for hundreds of bird species, it is also home for the most endangered cat on Earth and holds the traditionally second largest population of Iberian Lynx.
We spend a day out enjoying the Mediterranean forest with all its different aspects (flora and fauna) while looking for our main target. Despite the low chances, the search of the Lynx can be quite exciting even we do not manage to find it!
We follow the indications by the Wildlife Department of the Spanish Government and apply the good practises with maximum respect for Lynx watching. Please have a look at the document by clicking on the following link:

Doñana is a vast protected area of around 110,000 hectares of extension with different protection status such as World Heritage, Biosphere Reserve, Ramsar Site, SPA and National and Natural Parks. Through this trip, we visit both the National and Natural park areas of Doñana starting from El Rocio and driving across the Mediterranean forest in restricted sites such as Coto del Rey in between the provinces of Huelva and Seville.
The duration of the trip depends on the meeting point, the numbers of birds and mammals that come across and the interest in other special species of flora and fauna. Normally we will spend between 8 and 9 hours.
