RESERVE YOUR LYNX SAFARI

Enjoy the Andalusia nature in the best places to see the iberian lynx

 «Naturoots was created with the aim of intertwining development and conservation in rural areas. During the years that we have been working and living in the area, we have tried to contribute to the local situation of the Iberian lynx directly, with concrete and tangible actions on the ground, and indirectly, through the dissemination of the reality of this feline and the environmental problems that this mountain range is going through».

Graduated in Forestal Engineering and Máster in protected natural areas

«At the beginning of the century, with barely 100 lynxes in the wild, the Sierra Andújar had one of the last two populations of the species, being also the one with the greatest genetic viability.»

Frequently Asked Questions

The activity is available all days?

Yes, as long as you have not booked the 2 daily routes. If you want to experience the exploration in search of the Iberian lynx, don’t wait until the last minute to make your reservation.

 

Best time to do it?

Lynx are present in the territory all year round, although they are more active in the cooler months (December-February). On the other hand, it is possible to observe cubs in April and May.

YOU CONTRIBUTE TO CONSERVATION

By booking you contribute to the conservation of El Altozano Ecological Reserve.

Naturoots started managing the El Altozano estate (Sierra Andújar) in 2017.

Shortly after, we managed to get this natural space declared an Ecological Reserve, a conservation-oriented figure granted to private farms in Andalusia.

Thanks to the income from the Lynx Route and other experiences, we have increased the population of wild rabbits (essential in this ecosystem).

To this end, we have built auxiliary burrows. And we have also created the only water source for wildlife during the summer. The amphibians love it.

Below are photos of the work.
