Wildcats, Eagles, & Lynx of Spain Photography Holiday Details

NaturesLens invites wildlife photographers of amateur & semi-professional ability to join them in escaping to the diverse landscape of the Sierra Morena. This is the same location that we make use of during our spring trip, Eagles & Raptors of Spain, but at the time of year that this trip is being conducted, our target species are something altogether different! You will spend 4 nights, 5 packed-full days taking the opportunity to spend time in hides, hopefully enabling the capture of stunning images of wolf, ibex, golden eagleimperial eagle, wildcat & of course, the Iberian lynx.

With a selection of comfortable hides throughout the area at our disposal, we will provide you with the best photography opportunities possible. It has taken years to habituate the lynx & wildcat to the presence of the hides – you will have the opportunity to capture all the target species within their habitats & interacting with one another.

Based in a beautiful Andalusian town, you will enjoy the unspoilt scenery & emblematic species that the region has to offer.

Small group sizes ensure that you have optimum use of the hides, allowing you to capture spectacular images from the best angles, with photography guidance provided by the accompanying NaturesLens guide where needed.

A thriving hub of indigenous species, the various mammals & avian species co-exist in the area surrounding Adamuz. This leads to facilitating stunning shots from each of the photographic hides that you will have access to. From the majestic Imperial Eagle to the small, but ferocious, wildcat, you should leave with some amazing photographs and experiences. To give the best chance of capturing award-worthy images, we include 3 hide sessions with the lynx; the Iberian Lynx is a naturally shy animal, but these hide sessions are proving to be extremely productive.

NaturesLens provides a trip of 5 days duration packed with hide sessions, where your photography will benefit from unrivalled access to hides, placed strategically within the landscape to provide the optimum opportunity to photograph species such as golden eagle, imperial eagle, kestrel, lynx & wildcat. You may well spot other species at some of the hides, including red fox & egyptian mongoose.

This is a unique opportunity to photograph some of Spain’s most impressive, yet elusive species.

Accommodation is provided on a full board basis – from a light breakfast through to a 3-course dinner with a picnic lunch in between. Everything is taken care of for you so that experiencing & photographing the species & their environment are all you need to worry about.

This trip suits keen photographers with a desire to experience the magnificent wildlife that this region of Spain has to offer; capturing editorial-quality images of a range of both mammal & bird species to treasure for years to come. Places are highly limited to ensure the best experience for every guest, so book early to avoid disappointment.
