What to expect

You have included the car (4X4, including fuel) and a good guide, to show you as more as possible from the rich fauna of Dobrudja, on the best routes available in winter.

Being a private program we can start at any hour BUT! for best results, we recommend you to start an hour before sunrise time. The trip last until sunset and cover the best areas for GEESE and other winter birds. We do the route to include grazing fields, steppe, forest areas, lakes and marshlnds with places for feeding or roosting for many species of birds. Is not a trip to check places, is a trip to search and find birds, it is a SLOW trip with target on special places where we can observe birds.

The guide will pick you up from any address in Tulcea or Constanta cities. He will drive the car at low speed, along the routes we know very well, stopping from place to place, to scan the fields by binoculars and scope, in search of the birds. The most important is to see the birds without disturbing them.

All we need to know is the address for pick up, the hour you want to start the tour, the hour you want to finish the tour (if you have a limit hour) and, the most important, if you have some target species you want to see. In order to build an wish list, please download the Birds list of Dobruja and the Danube Delta so you can find the species found here, month by month.

We’ll bring a field scope (a good one), for all group use. If you do not have binoculars, just tell us at booking and we’ll borrow you some.
