Donana National Park

The best way to explore Andalusia’s wildlife is in the Donana National Park. The huge wetland covers 185,000 acres. Visiting numbers are restricted daily to preserve the nature, so you can expect a quiet, peaceful trip. Take a leisurely stroll around the park to see the variety of species of birds including the magnificent, imperial eagles that often visit. There’s lots of thriving nature and wildlife to witness: Living among the forestry and lagoons are vibrant flocks of flamingos, red deer, wild boars, mongoose and the endangered lynx.

If you’re more interested in life under water, venture to Andalusia’s largest exhibit of marine life in Roquetas de Mar. The aquarium is split into different zones to represent the water cycle: See exotic fish from the tropics, the ocean and the Mediterranean. Interact with the sea life by the rock pool where visitors get the chance to feed fish, hold crabs and stroke stingrays. There’s even the exciting opportunity to swim with sharks.
