Bird Watching in Romania, Danube Delta Experience is a five-day bird watching tour around the beautiful Danube River as it ends its journey through Europe in Romania. Your stay includes four nights’ accommodation in a family-owned eco-lodge with home-cooked traditional meals using fresh fish and other local ingredients. The holiday also includes three boat trips that will give you a real taste for bird watching in Romania. The trips last around six hours each, offering you the opportunity to see an abundance of wildlife in a gentle and relaxed way. This small-group birding tour is led by an English-speaking guide who knows the Danube Delta very well and can introduce you to some of its hidden charms. You will visit three distinct ecosystems during your stay – wetlands of water channels and lakes, forest areas with sand dunes, and areas of reclaimed agricultural land that have been a focus of conservation efforts. The Danube is Europe’s second-longest river, rising in Germany and emptying into the Black Sea at the Romanian coast. Bird watching in the peaceful green landscapes of this part of Romania is a tonic for the mind, enabling you to wind down from your busy life and just enjoy being in nature.
After you make yourself comfortable you can have dinner. Before or after dinner you can take a little walk nearby. During this walk you can see our village and the Danube shores. After dinner we will discuss, over a glass of local wine, some little details about our behavior and safety during the boat trip.
After breakfast, we will go to the boat (5 minutes walk till there). The trip lasts about 6 hours. During the tour you'll have the chance to see lot of birds: the Kingfisher, White-tailed Eagles, Pelicans, Purple heron, Grey heron, Squacco Heron, White egret, Little egret, Cormorants, Mute swan, Glossy ibis, lot of Dutchs species, Mallard, Goose and many others. We may also see The East Asian raccoon dog, Wild cats, Wild boars, Eurasian otter etc. On returning you will have lunch consisting of traditional fish dishes. After you rest, we recommend you take a walk on the Bestepe Hill Natural Reserve, wich offers you a nice panorama of the entire Danube Delta and a lot of landscapes. The reserve is one of the rare protected areas where steppe meadows are found on both limestone and siliceous substrates, which increases the total number of plant species. If you’re lucky, you can take some photos of a very spectacular sunset. We plan the activities for the next day.
Today, after the breakfast, we will go in some new areas of the Danube Delta. You can discover lakes and tunnel channels. You will not feel that the 6 hours trip is over and the lunch, near a glass of our traditional romanian wine will prepare you for discussions about your new love, the Danube Delta.
We think that it is time to see how the Danube river meet the Black Sea. If the weather permits you can also take a bath in the sea. It will be a long trip, but with lot of nice surprises. You will see forests, sand dunes, lianes etc. For the last day we will discuss together, after the dinner, what is the best trip to make. Were the lakes you attraction, was the Black Sea, the forests? Let’s make the plan for tomorrow.
Enjoy the breakfast. We have time to remember the joy of the last days. Are you in love with the Danube Delta? Hope “Yes”! See you next time! We are here!
