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

My group did a horseback riding tour through the park and down to the beach. The workers were professional and we enjoyed talking with them as well as horsing around ... heh, get it? Horsing around? :) Anyway, I would definitely recommend this tour even for people who are inexperienced. It's very important not to be skittish because horses pick... More

The tour (3.5-4h) was very enjoyable & interesting. Our guide was Gonzalo who did it in Spanish & very good English. He was very knowledgeable and had a good sense of humour. We saw lots of animals: deer and game with fawns, wild boar with piglets, wild horses and foals, as well as wild cows apart from many types of... More

Of our 7 day holiday around Seville we spent 2 days in the park. This is a magnificent area for bird watching, heard so much about it prior to going and it certainly lived up to its reputation. Our bird count numbered over 80 species and several that we could not ID. Even if your a none birder a visit... More

The chance of seeing Iberian lynx is slim. I was unlucky but met 2 ladies who had seen one ...just the luck of the draw. You have to go on an escorted tour but the tour driver and leader were knowledgeable about flora fauna and birds.. A very good information centre where we were able to buy a drink and... More

Birds birds birds but also peaceful good walking ( heavily restricted access to park but don't let that put you off, still worthwhile and you can walk the beach foreshore as far as you like. Don't fake a membership of a brotherhood to be able to walk through the park there are some realky protected species and habitats and the... More
