Sightings

If you prefer the experience of watching and photographing species outdoors in places with a wide vision field form prudential distances we make it possible. This activity can take place both in the Reserva Ecologica “El Altozano”, located in a privileged spot in the Sierra de Andujar, as in public places well known for its hi rate of success in fauna´s observation. Why don´t you join us in this unforgettable experience.

This activity has full flexibility both in duration and in the activities that are desired to be carried out. Depending on what you want we can make either more specific sessions focused specifically in one specie or be more divulgative and diverse, you choose.

As an example we propose a full time experience during that will let you enjoy the Mediterranean forest in all its splendour.

Activity description:

The journey will start early in the morning and after picking up the clients at their hotel we will go to the proximities of the river Jándula to try to see the otter, fun and elusive mammalian that has this river course as home. In our way we will have to be with eyes wide open since animal activity is usually very high at this time, ungulates like deers in the forest, herons that look out over the river or the flight of big scavengers that rise using thermal flows at the same rhythm that the sun rises.

We will then move on to a privileged spot, located on a public road, where a huge wild terrain will stand in front of us. In this environment we can find the most threatened feline of the world, the Iberian lynx. As before, on our way we will find some characteristic species of the Mediterranean forest like deer, fallow deer, Mouflons, Wild boars or mountain goats. The duration of this activity will depend in our success and patience. Of course we can never forget to look up to the sky, in the Sierra de Andújar we can find 48 % of the birds with presence in Spain and it is one of the best locations in Europe for “Birdwathcing”.

By the time appetite appears we will have a taste of local products. The scenario will change depending on the preferences of the client; we can either have lunch in the same place while we try to see the lynx or in a beautiful spot in the Ecological Reserve where we will spend the afternoon. Here we will wait and try to see if nature gives us a final surprise before finishing the day.

Local transportation and the lunch are included.
