Wildlife encounters – moments of happiness

Here are a few tips to improve your chances of seeing wildlife:

  • Take binoculars with you.
  • Sit down at a good vantage-point and be patient.
  • Cause as little noise as possible, and move about quietly.
  • Before the observation session, learn about the animal's habits, seasonal activities and the colours of its plumage or coat in the relevant season.
  • Take advantage of our offers and engage a local wildlife expert to guide you to the best observation points.
