Iberian Lynx Tour Led by Trai Anfield
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. So join Wildlife Trails on this specialist winter Iberian Lynx safari with Trai Anfield.
In addition to Iberian lynx you will have the chance to use a specialist hide to photograph golden eagles against majestic mountain backdrops, and other iconic Andalucian species including Spanish imperial eagle, black vulture and griffon vulture. We will also have access to a bespoke hide for red deer, carefully designed and situated to optimise your chances of gaining backlit shots against the sunrise. To stretch our legs after a couple of days in the hides we will head out on foot along the river to track local otters, which seem far more accommodating for photographers than many we have encountered elsewhere.
