Note that around Pentecost, pilgrims enter the park in droves. However, access to the park is strictly controlled for tourists year-round, so all visitors see the park on an organized tour.

  • I spent the whole morning to walk through the entire area visitable. It's a very nice ride, the bridges in good condition, many observatories and species to observe. I couldn't see the Lynx but it was worth it.

  • Without a doubt an experience that everyone should do. There are no words to describe the views of the Park, the great thing is to see nature as it is.

  • We did visit Doñana reserves. We did the tour of the North and Centre, and although there was no water, it was spectacular, we saw live something that usually only see on television. He driver and guide of the tour us instructed for the observation during the tour, saw many deer and heard the bawling, also saw many species of birds and some rabbits, the driver us gave explanations continuously of them animals that saw and stopped the suitcase in them places more strategic for them sightings.

  • 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!!
