Iberian Lynx wildlife holiday
Iberian Lynx Wildlife Tour – one of the rarest cats in the world and have generally been regarded as very challenging to view in the wild. However a combination of recent conservation initiatives in Spain, depopulation of rural Spain and a strong passion for this beautiful cat from local wildlife guides, has resulted in increased knowledge of its few remaining strongholds. Wildlife Trails has teamed up with a local Spanish wildlife company with many years of leading successful tours to this beautiful region.
Allan did this exact trip in January 2023, so can provide you with detailed information on both the setup of the hides, chances of see this stunning feline (sightings on 3 out of 4 days including mating pairs!). Everything has been done here on this private land to the highest professional level, from the quality of the photographic glass, the location of the hides to see the Lynx walking straight towards the camera and the background work in partnership with WWF, to improve the local rabbit population and encourage more breeding pairs in the area. There is quite high demand for these dates and I am a little late with this newsletter due to my African travels, so if you are interested, please contact us ASAP.
