  • I went with friends on a summer holiday, and it was truly magical! We visited the Park in a van with an awesome guide and very patient (I ask a lot of questions), her name was Rosa, I remember because she knew how to say the names of birds in several languages and was very friendly... The landscapes are amazing; There is a beautiful sands dunes where you can request stop to relax and the Sun on the beach with the birds is exceptional. We saw deer, beautiful flamingos, ducks, geese and eagles, then a Fox, boars, horses etc. There's even two negatives unfortunately; the vans are very old, they make a lot of noise and the road is completely distorted... a lot of bumps so hold on tight! If you're keen on nature or animals it is an amazing experience that I strongly advise you!

  • Ciervos, gamos, jabalíes y aves entre otras muchas especies. Recomendado
  • Guy Mountfort was the prime instigator of the successful financing for purchasing land that saved the Doñana as we know it today. And yet you would never know it, unless you read various literature and references made in some official documents. It simply beggars belief that no visitor centre, no monument, no plaque or Park literature pays respect to the saviour of the land which forms the main part of this wonderful National Park. 1960 rumours were heard developers had their sights on the lands of the Doñana By 1961 these rumours were confirmed, there were plans for a holiday camp stretching the full length of the sand beaches of the Doñana and the worst was plans to drain the protective eastern barrier of the marismas! The most notable of local people to side with the crusade of saving the area were Don Manuel and Don Mauricio González, as part owners of the Coto, with much to gain financially from the proposed developments; they heroically supported efforts to preserve it. Money was needed to stem the advances of developers and Guy Mountfort mobilised support, a move that led to the renowned formation of the World Wildlife Fund. So eventually money was raised and with the support of the Spanish Government the area was purchased and the National Park came into being. Whilst local park centres and reserve areas pay tribute to local Spanish pioneers, just where is the local recognition for the hero and champion of the Doñana, Guy Mountfort? For me it is an extremely sad omission by national and local authorities alike. Be very sure, if it were not for Guy Mountfort, there would be NO Doñana!!
  • Great tour. Gonzalo was our guide and he's really helpfull
  • I had the best four hours on the safari The park is magnificent
