“great day out”
Reviewed 25 April 2014

Amazing park with many things to do. Visit the information centre first to see what is on for the day.
we walked from the visitors centre to the Stud farm where you can go on a wagon ride. The walk along the road is about 2 kms.

The wagon ride was amazing. Aroung 2 hours long you get to see buffalo, black sheep, horses etc and of course the Hungarian Plainsmen. From the horseman standing on the back of 2 horses which are being led by another three horses, to the horsemen riding horses whilst cracking whips and the getting their horses to lay dow,
A must see and a great day.

“Cranes most beautiful watching place in Central Europe”
Reviewed 31 January 2014

Try to take one of nice hotels in Hajduszoboszlo, ask for current cranes migrations directions and time in Tourist Info Centre in Hortobagy, do not missed walk to Kondas (Hortobágyi-halastó) pond and take with Your digital SLR camera with lens min 200 mm.

“Saw massive crane migration, absolutely stunning.”

Loved the national park, get a taste of the steppes, the Hungarian Puszta. Brilliant. Visit the Hortobagy Visitor Centre for great tips.

Great park! We loved the wagon ride and the history of the "Puszta" as well as the great riding skills of the famous Hungarian plainsmen. Being avid birdwatchers, we found this place an amazing area for bird-watching...although we did not time our trip for the full migratory experience, we still added some new birds to our life list!

“Experience the culture of the Great Plains”
Reviewed 28 September 2013

Five of us went to Matai Menes to experience life on the Great Hungarian Plain. Before the tour we went through the stables to see the horses and bought some tradional lacework and ceramics from the little shops there. Then out to the plain in a horse drawn wagon to meet horsemen, see traditional farm dwellings and the unique horned sheep, Magalican pigs (low cholesterol!) and the grey cattle. It was really interesting and good fun. The only thing missing was the riding on multiple horse back.
