To be fair, it was extremely hot when I was there, but I didn't see much in the way of wildlife beyond a few flamingos and some other waterfowl.

The first half of the walk was really interesting with many wonderful sights and views. You can probably skip the second half--not many different sights, but a long, hot, mosquito-filled walk. Signs are in French but they loaned us an English bird guide. Reasonably priced snack bar with a great view of the birds.

This expanse of wetlands is a pleasure to drive through, and the ornithological center is fabulous. For a few euros, you can walk through a wetlands and see lots of flamingos, blue herons, egrets and other birds. There are designated paths past large ponds and marshes to see the birds, and the occasional viewing post. A lovely touch is that... More

What a wonderful part of nature. You can easily see the wild horses, bulla and other wild life without going on organised trips.

The Camargue is surprising and wonderful to visit when the birds are nesting in late May and June. If you want to see them up close then go to the ornothological nature reserve and you can wander for hours and take endless photos of beautiful pink flamingoes plus the occasional beaver up close. Humans are behind tall grass but there... More

The Camargue is not to be missed by anyone visiting the south of France. Wild white horses, black bulls and pink flamingos. A treat for nature lovers, and it's got the seaside too. We ate some of the best food in France in Arles.

We were unprepared for how remarkable it was to see hundreds of flamingos, some as close as 20-30 yards away. Spent all day there!

If you have a car (or feel the need to bike around) the Camargue is a great day out. Call into the Musée de la Camargue on the way to Stes Maries de la Mer (Route D570) housed in a beautiful traditional building, also get a map of the area. It looks like there are some great walks in the... More
