Huelva & Seville
Special tour with one main target: the world’s most endangered feline. Travel around Doñana National Park in the 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.
Through this Lynx guided tour, 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 nearly 1,300 square kilometres 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 the common land north of Doñana National Park that hosts the largest density of Iberian Lynx, driving and walking across the Mediterranean forest and the farmland on the edge and outside the Park. At an extra fee, we can enter restricted sites such as Coto del Rey or Finca de Gato, both in the Natural Park area 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 4 hours on a half day tour and between 8 and 9 hours on a full day.
