DESCRIPTION

We suggest you a trip guided by local experts with a great knowledgement of the territory, with the aim of having a sight of the most world's endangered feline, of which some more of 500 copies remain in the world: the Iberian lynx, 

 

We will know its habitat, its ecology, its behavior, the conservation actions that have been carried out for its recovery and we will make waits to try to observe it in private property. The Sierra de Andújar is the largest population nucleus of the species, being one of the best places for its sighting. We will look for traces, footprints and signs that indicate their presence.

We start the day looking for the different species that this corner of Sierra Morena offers us. Between a Mediterranean mountain of soft reliefs and a spectacular landscape, we enter the Sierra de Andújar Natural Park to discover the world of the restless otters, the Spanish imperial eagle or the black and griffon vultures, that already in the mid-morning raise their flight taking advantage of the thermal currents.

Later, we will calmly move through the best lynx territories, which are also for different mammals such a Red deer, Fallow deer, Mouflon or Wild boar.

Dehesas of holm oaks, cork oaks, wild pear trees, heathers, rock roses, strawberry tree scrubs, mastic trees, or different aromatic plants typical of the Mediterranean forest, between an infinite labyrinth of granite "bowls" will open the way to a private farm where we will have total exclusivity to realize waits trying the observation of the Iberian Lynx (small groups).

 

Of course, observing without filling the stomach is complicated, so we include a picnic of local and organic products (coffee included) to taste in the field. Do not worry, while we enjoy the picnic, the guides are completely alert to any movement that may arise;)

It's complicated to describe it in words, are you coming?
