  • Was a visit that had pending and not me disappointed, without having seen too animals and nor them birds, think that is imperative the go. The walk of makes 4 x 4, as and broad, 21 squares, and explore the first 27 km of palay, stopping whenever there is something interesting, dead loggerhead, plovers or cormoraanes, with a nice explanation of the guides that accompany you. After touring the area of the reserve attached to the Guadalquivir, there we saw some wild boar, deer and fallow deer. Then in the Marsh, is this case, despite being full, seemed an extension of the sea, the show was great. Unfortunately we didn't see any migratory bird. Finally stopped in the dune mobile, is something unthinkable u at the same time very beautiful.

  • Recommended, living nature. It has been a wonderful experience, the Park offers numerous leisure activities. Including horse riding along the beach, excursion in 4 x 4 throughout the Park... The latter essential to know all the fauna and flora of the hand of an expert guide. It is rating effort making day to day staff who worked in the park for their preservation and care. Is a space magic.

  • 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
