Few think of Europe for wildlife expeditions, but I can say after spending near two months there this past summer, and seeing over 50 species of mammals, that it is absolutely outstanding! You have to work a bit harder and deal with a lot of inconveniences like good inexpensive wine and amazing cities....but the fauna is rich. We spent time in Italy, Spain, Greece and France mostly. Take a look at the separate trip reports below for the details! Enjoy.

@@Nature Traveler thank you for sharing, I've enjoyed all your TRs and looking forward to these.

 

Always wanted to track down bears, lynx and wolves in Europe and hope to one day, even snakes.

I was hoping to see more snakes too - saw some amazing lizards and skinks, but snakes were few.... We were pretty lucky with the mammals however.

Thanks Captian! I had not heard to much about Doñana NP. I have just researched it a bit more - is it easy to see the Lynx there? There were several outstanding images on the internet of the lynx.... Definitely interested. I would not mind retiring in Spain but I don't think I can ever afford EU taxes....I think Thailand will have to be where we finish out!
