Licenced under No. 50/2014 in the National Register of Agents Tourist Entertainment.
Alentejo Birdwatching offers individual birding holidays but also guided bird tours and excursions as well as accommodation in the Alentejo region of Portugal. And since we are licenced we are able to visit protected areas with our clients and go to spots where you privately are not allowed to come.
Birdwatching Alentejo combines 6 different habitats in 1 birding holiday. We have the steppes, the beach, lagoons, forests, cliffs and an estuary, and all this in less than a 1 hour drive. This guarantees a large amount and variety of birds. During our birding holiday of a week most customers spot as an average over 100 species of birds. To see which birds are spotted when and where you can have a look at our page Birdlists by date.
Our 20 hectares property is partly included in an ecological reserve and completely run on solar and wind-energy. It is located at only 5 kms from the historic town of Santiago do Cacém but you find total silence here. Even the beach is only 15 kilometers away and relaxing at the pool is also an option.
It is also possible to book a shorter or longer holiday with us.
As well as the wealth of local species surrounding Monte Horizonte, there are six areas within an hours car journey which are ideal for Bird Watching. We combine the cliffs at the ocean, the lagoons, an estuary, woods, lakes and steppes in just one birding holiday. And of course you can also rent one of our bird hides.
But our favorite spots are of course the Santo André Lagoon which is close and of which is said that through out the year more then 300 species can be spotted and the steppes with the fantastic Great Bustards as well as Little Bustards, Black-bellied Sandgrouses, several Vultures and Eagles.
If interested you can book us below.
If you not only want to book an accommodation but also our individual birding trip, you must also check the birding package during the reservation.
My husband and I are very interested in spending some time birding in your area. We are looking at being in the area around May 24 and 25. We have not yet booked accommodation but we are more interested in staying in a smaller community rather than a centre like Evora. We would appreciate any advise you would have as to meeting this preference. We would need to be back in Lisbon to fly home to Canada on the 27th. We look forward to communicating with you further.
