Good bird watching tour with a friendly guide. We had a cancelled tour one day due to bad weather. This was not the company's fault obviously and they offered us an alternative the next day which turned out fine. The tour itself was decent and we saw some nice birds, including plenty of spoonbills.

Je recommande vivement : notre guide était passionné et parlait très bien français, et nous avons pu observer pas mal d’oiseaux (spatules, aigrettes, cigognes, flamands roses, chevaliers gambette...)
