Amazing area and really helpful staff at the, not so wonderful only campsite in the area. It's clean and has everything that you need, but seems a little 'run down'. Views and bird-watching made it all worthwhile.

We drove almost two hour to get to this park an we didn't regret. If you enjoy nature, you will love it. The view from Salto Del Gitano and Castillo Monfrague is something you will remember for ever. Recommended to be visited !

I do recall seeing a bus timetable at one of the parking places. There are details of the buses on the internet, search for autobuses en Monfragüe, I would include a link but the system will not allow it.

There isn't a bus service. Perhaps a taxi would be willing to take you and wait around for a set fee. Alternatively there are lots of bird watching businesses that will provide transport and expert advice
