Wildlife photo Tour in the Danube Delta - 4 Days


Wildlife Photography Tour in Romania

Romania Wildlife Photo Tour is a six-day wildlife photography tour around the beautiful Danube River as it ends its journey through Europe in Romania. Your stay includes five nights’ accommodation in a family-owned eco-lodge with home-cooked traditional meals using fresh fish and other local ingredients.

This Romania photo tour also includes four boat trips that will give you a real opportunity for wildlife photography in the Danube Delta. The trips last around six hours each, offering you the chance to capture images of beautiful scenery and an abundance of wildlife in a gentle and relaxed way.

This small-group wildlife photo 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 various ecosystems on your Danube Delta wildlife photo tour. There are wetlands of water channels and lakes and the forest areas of Letea and Caraorman with their accompanying sand dunes. You will also see Saint George and areas of reclaimed agricultural land in the Carasuhat area 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. A wildlife photo tour in the peaceful green landscapes of the Danube Delta is a tonic for the mind, enabling you to wind down from your busy life and just enjoy photographing in this beautiful landscape.

If nature photography is your passion, then this wildlife photo tour will be heaven for you.

Top Reasons to Visit

  • The Danube Delta Biosphere Reserve was included in the List of World Cultural and Natural Heritage in 1990 (UNESCO World Heritage) when it was recognised as a wetland of international importance, especially as a wildfowl habitat.
  • At 2,200 square miles, the Danube Delta is regarded as one of Europe’s largest wetlands, laced with branches of the main river, marshland, canals and reeded islands. It has the most extensive area of compact reed beds in the world.
  • The Danube Delta is the best preserved of Europe’s delta ecosystems. It is the perfect breeding ground for thousands of birds that migrate there from around the world. More than that, a wildlife photo tour to the area can be a rewarding one year-round.
  • The Biosphere Reserve is the world’s third-largest area for biodiversity, following only Australia’s Great Barrier Reef and Ecuador’s Galapagos Islands in the number of species (5,500 types of flora and fauna) it supports.
  • Important species to catch a picture of on your wildlife photo tour include Pygmy Cormorant, White Pelican, Dalmatian Pelican, White-tailed Eagle, Ferruginous Duck, Red-breasted Goose, Glossy Ibis, Marsh Harrier, Purple Heron, Spoonbill, Kingfisher, Squacco Heron, White Stork, Caspian Tern, Red-footed Falcon and Roller.
  • Our Bunica Maria Wildlife Photo tour also has a conservation focus, highlighting the Carasuhat area. Since 1993 this has been part of an ecological reconstruction project, returning former agricultural land in the Danube Delta to a natural habitat for breeding birds.
