Rollers and Bee-eaters Photo Tour
This wildlife photography tour is focused on two of the most colourful European birds – the Common Bee-eater and the European Roller. The itinerary is designed for keen wildlife photographers, who want to take home a variety of pictures of these species, while the birds are engaged in courtship displays, mating, food (gift) transfer and other spring activities. In addition, there will be options for raptor and mammal photography as well as quality birdwatching on the territory of Persina Nature Park.
Our base for the 5-day trip will be the small town of Belene, from where we will make short transfers to the photo hides and areas for birdwatching. It is located on the Bulgarian Danube shore and is connected with a bridge to Persin (Belene) Island – the largest Bulgarian island on the Danube.
Our experience will be enriched with our accommodation – a 3-star hotel offering great views of the river and tasty food prepared from local products.
This is a private tour that can be tailored to your interest and time budget.
