Lovely half day walk with knowledgeable, English-speaking guide. Ottman was punctual (recommend the 8 am start), good humored and generous with his time. It was a treat to receive an email with photos of the identified birds after we returned home. Definitely recommend!!

If you want to do the walk, I'd advise you to put your child in a child carrier (if still possible). I'm not sure they can accommodate donkeys to help. Maybe worth a call or an email to the organiser.
