Bird Watching

Bulgaria is home to over 420 bird species and is one of the up and coming destinations for ornithologists. The various wild habitats provide shelter for 22 endangered species. The Via Ponitca, one of the migratory routes in Europe, passes through Bulgaria. There are two resident birds of prey living in the campsite valley and they are often seen circling and swooping for prey. Your hosts can give you directions to the best birding locations. Bee eaters and golden orioles are found locally in Spring time. There are also eagles to be found within an hour’s drive. There is a large group of buzzards who live in the next field as well as visiting eagles, ospreys and owls.



In the country of mountains and rivers you can be sure to find the perfect spot to create great images. Whether you like landscapes, nature, or modern city-scapes your hosts can provide insightful information as to the best places to allow your creativity to flow.
