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...

Bird paradise on the Guadalquivir river estuary. Vast in scale, 40 kms down unpaved roads, which generally in a good condition. Well worth the effort for the birder. Numerous raptors and waders. Free. 2wanderers.com

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

The park is full of wildlife such as wild boar, deer, and birds galore. Take your binoculars and enjoy!

A visit in the national parc with jeep, sounds beautiful right? Think again! After calling several times to get a reservation, with an english guide. We drove there from Seville to get our visit. Without any warning we were put on a bus with a spanish guide, because there was no english one present that day. (That was something they... More

I can imagine that Doñana is beautiful when it is wet. There are plenty of boardwalks and bird hides, but little to see at the end of summer.

We were lured into a guided tour without anybody mentioning beforehand that the tour would not be given with English translation. Not when reserving the tour, not when paying the tour at the local visitor centre in Acebuche and not at the start of the bus drive. The driver never stopped, barely slowed down for photographs of the wildlife and... More

The tour was run by the Cooperativa Andaluza Marismas del Rocio (http://www.donanavisitas.es/) and took us through all the ecosystems in the park. A bit bumpy in places but our first stop was in the middle of the sand dunes - an almost alien landscape. Fascinating animal tracks in the sand..still trying to work out what made them. Next stop was... More
