Bird Watching Guided Half-Day Tour from Lanzarote
US$58.59
Overview
Absorb the serenity of Lanzarote’s picturesque wilderness on a half-day bird watching tour led by a professional guide. Travel in a powerful 4x4 vehicle over off-road terrain and admire spectacular landscapes as you head towards the bird watching mecca of the fertile island. Equipped with state-of-the-art binoculars and a telescope, scour the scenery for rare species like trumpeter finches, hoopoes and spectacular Egyptian vultures. Gain fascinating insight into the behavior and physiology of the birds from your expert guide, and enjoy round-trip transportation from your Lanzarote hotel.
What to Expect
For birders, Lanzarote can offer if not quantities, than definitely some very interesting species.

Equipped with a reliable Landrover, several pairs of binoculars and a telescope, you'll then enter the desert of Soo. This is home to the houbara bustard, cream colored courser and stone curlew to name the big 3. Journeying towards the heart of the desert and you'll hopefully encounter many surprises on the way, including lesser short-toed larks, trumpeter finches, hoopoes and occasionally a kestrel or the spectacular Egyptian vulture. It is common to meet goat herds in Soo with the loyal company of numerous cattle egrets.

The trip will be a pleasant experience even for non birding companions, who may admire the different exotic landscapes and enjoy the 4x4 ride.
