  • To be seen in the early morning or evening when they are fed. The best time is spring for photo enthusiasts, as few people (early in the morning), tourist busy periods are to be avoided.

  • Visiting the camargue we saw hardly any flamingos. They were not there at the beginning of June. But in this park where they are free we could see them with their little ones. Several hundred flamingos not yet very colorful feed before your eyes. What a pleasure to see them so close with other species like the heron. 2 rides are offered at a price of 9 euros. What to see

  • This natural park is perfect for nature lovers. There are several families of birds, including the famous flamingos! 5 or 7km course, in the sun it's a treat
