The Company for Quality Birding Holidays


Spanish Nature are different from other Companies offering birding Holidays on the following important points:

High quality and comfort of accommodation, food, transport and all other aspects of the tour are as important to us as the birding itself.

We provide alternative programs. Spanish Nature understands that when a couple travel together, sometimes one has less interest in the actual birding and prefers to enjoy other aspects of the visited holiday destination.

Travelling together as friends, this is our philosophy, because we want to enjoy the tour as much as you and we also want to be an integral part of the group.

Our birding guides are of an extremely high standard, maybe this is not necessary to say, but of course we want to assure you, that you will really see all possible birds.

Tailor your own short or extended natural heritage tour!

 

Put together your own guided holiday, your choices, your decisions and total flexibility from Spanish Nature on each day of your stay...

 

We offer the possibility for you to arrange your own tours to inland Andalucia. The tours are based in the Serranía de Ronda area. We offer not just guided excursions, but also free airport transfers. The offer is open at all times of the year, subject to availability.

Example of an itinerary, but you can adapt it or design your own...

Based on 3 nights and 4 days, but with the option to extend your stay for whatever period you choose.

Day One
We collect you from your flight at Malaga Airport. Depending on your time of arrival, we can explore areas of natural interest en route to your hotel. One such possibility is Fuente de Piedra, a large inland salt lake, where thousands of Greater Flamingo congregates to breed. The lake and surrounding area is rich in birdlife at all times of the year. Your first day will impress scenically and for the diversity of birds you will see.

Day Two

You decide the time in the morning when you are collected by your guide. Have a leisurely breakfast or make an early start, the choice is yours. The day will consist of exploring the Serranía de Ronda, a wonderfully scenic area, for local wildlife. Depending on the time of year, wild flowers can also feature with their colours carpeting the hillsides. Whatever the time of year, the scenery is spectacular and wildlife is abundant.

 

 

 

 

 


Day Three
The start of the day is flexible, again you choose the time of departure. We will drive through the mountains and descend to the open plains of the Osuna district. Here the scenery is in contrast to the high sierras and is gently rolling plains, allowing uninterrupted views for spotting typical steppe birds. We will discover many bird species and the area also has several lagoons, where virtually anything might turn-up.

Day Four

The day is dependant on your flight time home, but we will tailor the day to suit your own personal requirements. We will travel in the direction of Malaga to maximise your time and visit areas within the Sierra de las Nieves UNESCO Biosphere Park. Our route is great for mountain birds and the scenery is superb. Provided we have time, our route can incorporate the stunning area around El Chorro and we can approach Malaga following the course of the Rio Guadalhorce.
