We then travel further north and east into Romania, for 3 nights on the Danube (Danarii) delta, followed by two nights in the Carpathian mountains of Transylvania, ending our tour in the Romanian capital, Bucharest.
The birds and mammals on this tour will feature some totemic species, including Lesser-spotted eagles, Red-footed falcons and Egyptian vultures; or else wetland birds such as Dalmatian & White Pelicans and Collared Pratincoles.
Raptors and wetland birds will feature prominently, and we also take care to absorb the culture of this fascinating countries, visiting ancient mountain and delta villages. Accommodation is either in modern hotels, or traditional family-owned villas with thatched rooves.
