Itinerary

Just over an hour's drive from Seville, the National Park of Doñana in South West Spain offers an amazing variety of natural landscapes as well as a vast wealth of wildlife. This strictly protected area of Andalusia has pine and cork-oak forests, river marshes, lagoons and transition areas between these ecosystems.

This private excursion will take you from your hotel in Seville to the heart of this protected area, where you will be able to experience all its beauty and to learn about its fascinating wildlife. From your hotel, you will be transferred to the boundary of the restricted area of the National Park. Your local guide will offer you the corresponding explanations along the way for you to understand particularities of the area. Upon arrival to the restricted area, you will change vehicles and in a private 4x4, you will venture into the heart of the National Park for approximately 5 hours together with your personal authorized zoologist.

After your adventures in the National Park, you will be taken for lunch to the iconic hamlet of El Rocío. El Rocío is a delightful hamlet of whitewashed houses and sandy streets located exactly on the boundary of the National Park of Doñana's restricted area. Famous amongst Spanish natives for a yearly pilgrimage that finishes in this particular hamlet, El Rocío has also an amazing local gastronomy. Lunch and a walk through its rustic streets to understand the importance of this pilgrimage will be the highlights of your tour through El Rocío, before being driven back to your hotel in Seville.

Seasonal highlights of the adventures through the natural park:

  • Winter (21st of December - 21st of March): the marshes flood. Large flocks of birds flying over the wetlands.
  • Spring (21st of March - 21st of June): marshland landscapes at their best. Wild flowers blooming in the cork and pine forests. Probably the best time of the year to take this tour.
  • Summer (21st of June - 21st of September): the marshes dry out and the hours and wildlife activity are around sunrise. A visit to rice fields is included because this is where the majority of the bird species tend to concentrate.
  • Autumn (21st of September - 21st of December): the marshes have the first rains and bird migrations start. Some birds arrive from Northern Europe to stay, some others leave Doñana to go to Northern Africa for the winter.

Inclusions

  • Private transportation in a modern and comfortable vehicle throughout the day with a dedicated driver (a Mercedes Sedan or minivan for the transfer between Seville and the national park and viceverse and a landrover defender for the tour through the protected areas).
  • Personal local host throughout the day and a private authorized zoologist for the adventures in the protected areas of the national park.
  • All entrance tickets and admissions.
  • Petrol, parkings and tolls
