The Iberian lynx is the most rare and endangered feline in the world.
The lack of rabbits, the main prey of lynx, makes that during last years was more and more difficult to watch lynxes. In addition to this, the public areas are overcrowded with hundred of watchers trying to locate the “cats”, and this often is not a good feeling when the client is looking for a relaxing wildlife holidays.

WildWatching Spain offers lynx observation trips in exclusive private estates in Sierra Morena Mountain range. This, allows that our groups enter into this private lands guided by our expert guides, visiting lonely corners, in some of the best iberian lynx areas of Andalusia. The private estates service includes a light lunch in the countryside.

Puertobajo estate is a 2.500ha land, that guard an amazing biodiversity: more than 40 nest of Black Vultures, Imperial Eagles, Black-winged Kites, and of course, a stable population of Iberian Lynx thanks to a good density of wild rabbits.

Visiting this estates you ´ll contribute to Iberian lynx conservation, collaborating with owners and WWF on lynx protection. In fact around a 20% of the entry tax go direcly to this project.

The estate has been working together the Iberian Lynx LIFE project during last years, improving the population of rabbits and lynxes.

Visit Puertobajo is an exclusive experience, avoiding the public lands, and offering a more relaxed and successful product to our clients.

Our guides track continuously the lynx population to be sure that our clients enjoy of the best watching.
