We visited this park expressly to see the flamingoes but we were very disappointed. Advice to others would be to check the season: apparently there are not many to be seen (other than at a distance) in April. It's a long dusty walk around the...More

I went to this natural park to primarily see the flamingos and I did see some, but I expected many more, so in hindsight, they seem to be spending their colder months somewhere else. For birdwatching in general, it was the same: I saw few...More
