We booked four tickets for an English speaking tour the following day. We paid for them 45 min before take off. The bus that we were booked on did not arrive and we were instructed to take another. The bus driver did not speak English. We did not understand a word during the four hour long trip. We saw a... More

Stunning park and wildlife, but don't expect to access the park the same as e.g in the UK with footpaths etc: you have to take a pre-booked tour to really experience the park, and they're expensive (and not available on some public holidays like New Year). Visitor centre staff are helpful and speak good English

Donana NP was a great added value to our round trip in Andalucia. We enjoyed very much, we saw many birds, deer, wild bores, no lynx though (maybe next time), we experienced sand dunes, low lands and the sun! We would like to come again to see lynx! Our guide Gonzalo was great - his English was amazing and he... More

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
