For the ultimate European safari try getting to one of Spain's largest nature reserves, access is beyond Seville and usually necessary to stay overnight at El Rocio to get the 8.30 (prompt) start. For the 4 hour guided tour. 4 wheel drive Unimogs allow for high up viewing of the 35 Km beach that forms the first part of the excursion. Sea birds, squid fishers and Atlantic Ocean views are followed by the turn inland for the first rest break (and a chance to eat your own pic nic breakfast). The inland drive through sand dunes, pine forests and extensive marshland (The Vera is the green fresh water divide) provides opportunities for bird viewing including Black Kites and if lucky Imperial Eagles nesting in the forest area. deer, wild boar marsh cattle and horses are there for the photographers. Less good are the fixed routes the drivers use and be prepared for other Unimogs full of school groups (generally well behaved). Back in time for a late lunch at the start point or at El Rocio and then visit to the Francisco Bernis Birdwatching Centre, Donana

My husband insisted on visiting the park and I am so glad we went! The landscape is magical. We saw mostly birds, and I am disappointed I didn't get to see the elusive Iberian lynx, yet the tour of the park is worthwhile.

We toured with Cooperativa Marismas del Rocio, the concessionaire on the park grounds. Our guide, Gonzalo, spoke good English and provided explanations to my husband, who was the only person on the bus who didn't speak Spanish.

No complaints.

Tried to take a tour of the Park in January. If you are English with little Spanish, don't try! You are not welcome, the receptionists make that obvious. There are two 4 hour tours per day 0830 and 1500, In Spanish only and you must book ahead. After that information is passed on then it's "Please do not disturb". Sad, but then their job is safe so why bother to promote the Donana?

Trip was 28 euro it is the normal trip. The bus was traveling via normal roads some we saw some birds an animals but nothing special. The far end of the tour was the place where some people was just fishing so nothing wild. The "english" of the guide was really spanglish and 1 to 5 spanish english ratio of speaking. For me this trip was really nothing special. Maybe try to get the extended version.

The park is heavily protected from occasional visitors and access is only given through guided tours. We did not take one.
