IBERIAN LYNX OF SPAIN PHOTO TOUR
The lynx of southern Spain
Why we love this Iberian Lynx safari
This photo tour is perfect for any wild cat enthusiast who wants to photograph one of the rarest cats in the world, the Iberian lynx. Our very small group size ensures that we have meaningful encounters with the lynx and that we do not disturb them. We not only utilize the best Iberian lynx guides, but we also search for lynx both on public as well as on private land.
One of our favorite aspects of this tour is that the lynx brings us as individuals together. Due to their elusive nature, it takes a lot of patience for the cats to show themselves. This allows for plenty of opportunities to get to know one another, to make friends, and to share stories with each other. From every tour we have run, we know of people who became such close friends they have since then traveled together.
We overlap the time of our tour with Iberian lynx mating season. This means that there is a good chance we will see mating pairs and we are sometimes even lucky enough to hear the yowling call one lynx will make to attract a partner.
Our conservation activity for this tour also often ranks amongst the highlights for this tour as we spend one morning building a rabbit warren in prime lynx habitat. This helps increase rabbit numbers in the area, which is key to bringing back Iberian lynx.
