Visited the Park in July by bus tour for 28 euros. We had Saturday or Sunday to visit this place and unfortunatelly those days there was not possible to have the bus tour with english speaking guide. We decided to visit Donana anyway, hoping to at least see some interesting animals. I would recommend to not spanish speaking people to... More

Being aware of the threat undergone by the Iberian Lynx, I have been very interested in the issue not only because it is na endangered species but because those wild cats have lived both in Portugal and Spain. Being near Donana Park in El Rocio, I couldn't miss the chance to visit it. Eventhough we couldn't manage to see lynxes... More

A Mediterranean climate means rain in winter; dry in summer. Doñana is in the south of Spain, close to Africa = very hot in summer. Together these = no water in summer. The El Acebuche water has dried even by May. That some visitors went there and found no water is hardly the park's fault. Also, in Spain they speak... More

We were only in the area for a very short time and were unable to fit in one of the guided tours. However, we thought at the very least we would visit the main Visitor Centre where some walks would be possible around a lake. When we got the Visitor Centre the receptionist was far from helpful other than to... More

We did the beautiful, little bit exhausting walk from Matalascanas to Sanlucar de Barrameda. PERFECTO! We started at the park entrance in Matalascanas at 7am and arrived at the ferry to Sanlucar at 3pm. Length of the track is exactly 28.1 km (GPS tracking recorded), don't let the locals distract you with their stories about 34+ km. I guess no... More

The park is precious and huge but we have only experienced a very homogenous, limited landscape and wild life. Assume the authorities do not allow inner excursions. Taking the combo trip of a boat+(noisy) bus from Sanlucar, we were hoping to see some special stuff. Well we saw pines. Lots of them and of flamingos, so far you could not... More

You’ll spot birds everywhere whether you’re an ornithologist or a birding enthusiast. In spring, you can expect to see returning species like the North African spoonbills. Unfortunatly this time we didnt see any lynx (lince) :( The place is ruled by the Mediterranean temperature. It has dry summers but cool and wet winter seasons. The average temperature is about 17...

There are lots of possibilities for bird watching in the area around the Donana National Park although it can be quite difficult to get good information about where to go and what is where. There are organised tours from El Acebuche and El Rocio into the parts of the park which do not have public access and we made several... More
