In this activity we will carry out a route guided by local experts in a 4x4 vehicle, with the aim of knowing the Iberian Lynx's habitat, its ecology, its behavior, the conservation actions that have been carried out for its recovery and we will make a wait to try observe it on a private estate in Sierra Morena at sunset.
The high temperatures reached during the summer period in Sierra Morena (which can exceed 40º C), prevent us from developing our activity normally at this time.
Most species restrict their movements to the first and last hours of the day, they take advantage of the water points to hydrate themselves, and the best feeding areas to subsist during the summer.
Our activity adheres to these times, so we encourage you to enjoy a unique sunset in search of the Iberian Lynx in the company of our guides.
We will move quietly through the best lynx territories, enjoying the scenery and the tranquility offered by one of the least inhabited places on the Iberian Peninsula, where the singing of the Common Cuckoo or the restless Iberian Magpies are part of the soundscape of Sierra Morena.
We include a tasting of local products for dinner in the countryside + wine while we wait and enjoy the wonderful sunset.
Important: although the activity is of low difficulty, in which no type of physical effort is made, it is not recommended for people suffering from pathologies that may be aggravated by high temperatures. We must bear in mind that the activity is carried out in the mountains, with limited access to health services.
- It takes place from July 1 to August 31.
- Approximate duration of the day: 6 hours.
- The half-day rate will apply.
- At Birds & LynxEcotourism we comply
strictly with ethical behavior at the foot of the field for the observation of threatened fauna, and fauna in general. Our company does not use baits, lures, or attractants of any kind.
The specimens that can be observed live completely in the wild, so observation is never 100% guaranteed. Our results indicate that there is a high probability, but on some occasions it may be necessary to make more than one field day to be successful in the sighting.
- Observations are made from a sufficient distance so as not to alter the behavior of the species, always guided by experts in their biology and ethology.
- Nature is capricious and indomitable, so we are not responsible for the weather or other external factors that could alter the habitual behavior of wildlife.
