Drive to the park and park itself is beautiful. Scenery is fantastic and great to see the wildlife esp the deer and birds. Will be back to see the storks in winter months.

Really interesting rock formations and lots of vultures flying overhead. Sometimes they land really close on the edge of cliffs.

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
