Firstly, had we been able to have an English speaking guide, I would have given 5 stars. But without that and if we hadn't been reasonably familiar with bird species I can't give five stars. The only way to see the park and a place of beauty. Myriad birds - some first for us - purple gallinule and Spanish imper... More

Donana Park is an area of natural beauty. Lakes with flamingoes and spoonbills. Go to the information centre nr el rocio and see the bird hides. Black ibis, herons, storks and marsh harriers. The woodland goes on for miles. We are camped in the middle in yellow village. Fantastic for wildlife.

We booked the tour from the centre and had Jorge as our guide. He was great hugely informative and kept the group interested throughout the whole four hours of the trip. Got to see all the animals and birds we expected to see - wild boar, horses, various type of dear, cows, Spanish Imperial Eagle. Well worth doing and enjoyed... More

We actually had a great time. Beautiful and saw a lot of wildlife but it hadn't rained so the most of the marshes were dried out, still waiting for the fall rain. It is probably better to go in winter or spring when the marshes are full. It's a beautiful area and worth a visit.

Without a doubt the most diverse place to watch birds. We stayed in El Rocio which in itself is an experience. Everything was planned and we hired a guide Jose Sanchez from Discovering Doñana as you are unable to navigate the park without an authorised guide. It's the best place to see Iberian Lynx. There are many areas around the... More

We are novice birders and had heard of the Cota Donana as a great place to visit. After looking at self-guided options we settled on a Saga hotel trip with daily excursions to the Cota Donana and other birding areas nearby. We had an absolutely brilliant time largely thanks to our fantastic guides, Manu and Rafa, who were extremely knowledgeable... More

This park is beautiful. We had a couple of guides, which added to the experience. We saw 27 new species of birds and would have seen more if we had started before daylight, but I didn't want to get up that early. The park is desert-like, as you would expect for this part of the world. There is a little... More

Coming from the US we were unsure of what to expect. Our contact, Manu from Spoonbill Trips, was extremely helpful with organizing and planning our day. Our bird watching guide, Jose, was excellent. He was knowledgeable, flexible, and worked hard to ensure our day was a huge success with sightings of 61 species of birds! If you are a birder... More

We stayed in El Rocio during our visit here as part of a birding group so we were ideally placed to visit the park, we had our own guides with us and they were able to show us the many facets of this large area. The birding was excellent and diverse. The many birds including Flamingoes and Spoonbills on the... More
