DESCRIPTION

Cooperativa Marismas del Rocío, the official agent for all-terrain vehicle guided tours in Doñana National Park, and Aires Africanos, who organise camel rides in Doñana National Park, now offer a joint excursion to spend an unforgettable day in Doñana.

The tour consists of a journey in special all-terrain vehicles inside Doñana National Park where you’ll visit all the different ecosystems in this stunning nature reserve and discover their wide di-versity of flora and fauna.

Aires Africanos will add an exotic extra and you’ll explore the landscapes of Matalascañas Sand Dune Park from the back of a camel, an animal closely linked to the history of Doñana. This is a guided route through pine forests and sand dunes next to the sea and it lasts for one hour.

It’s suitable for all ages and has very comfortable seats so it can be enjoyed with your family, part-ner or friends.

The full programme, which includes the two tours and food (lunch or dinner), can be completed on the same day or alternate days.

Doñana Visitas is the only company that is authorised to visit all the ecosystems in Doñana National Park, including the beaches and dunes. If you’d like to head deep into this paradise and discover first-hand one of the most remarkable natural areas in Spain and the world with detailed information and fascinating facts about its flora and fauna, this guided tour of Doñana is the perfect option for you.

During your visit you’ll explore Doñana, reaching the Guadalquivir estuary and crossing all the different types of ecosystem that are found in this unique nature reserve, admiring their great varie-ty, diverse ecology, strongly contrasting landscapes and their flora and fauna.

DURATION

Together the tours last approximately 6.5 hours (approx. 4 hours for the Doñana tour and 2.5 hours for the camel ride). The tours can be done on the same day or alternate days.

Our tour departs from El Acebuche Visitors’ Centre and explores all the ecosystems in Doñana: dunes, beach, marshland, forest and vera. Tours run by other companies take visitors to the forest, marshland or scrubland, but they cannot take you to see Doñana’s beaches and dunes.

Our vehicles are perfectly adapted for the terrain. Most are 21-seaters but we also have vehicles for 6 and 30 people. The vehicles are closed and therefore they are unaffected by inclement weather. Tours can even be made if it’s raining.

El Acebuche Visitors’ Centre is one of the oldest visitors’ centres in Doñana and it’s also the largest. Its facilities include a restaurant/café, exhibitions, audiovisual displays, an information desk and shop. The Centre is located on the road between El Rocío and Matalascañas. (A-483 KM 37.5).

It also has around five kilometres of pedestrian paths that are free to access and open to all. We recommend taking your time to visit the centre and spend the whole day enjoying the facilities.

Neither time is better or worse for visiting the park. The route is the same and you have the same chance of spotting animals. The duration is also the same.

You almost always see animals but Doñana isn’t a zoo and we cannot guarantee the number of animals you might spot. The interest of the tour doesn’t lie in the number of animals you see and there are other factors that make it a fascinating experience, especially the landscape and the tour guide’s explanations.

Please check the duration in the information about each tour.

Once you get to El Acebuche Centre, park your car in the car park and enter the building that is about 100 m away. Go past the front desk and out into the patio. On the left-hand side of the patio you’ll find a door that leads to another desk where you should pay for your ticket. You will then be assigned to your tour vehicle. You should then return to the car park and get into your vehicle for the tour. We always recommend arriving at El Acebuche Centre half an hour before your tour de-parts.

You can pay in cash or by credit card at the ticket desk.

If you’ve booked online, you’ll be asked to pay at the time of booking.
