Danube Delta Scouting Tour with Jeff Parker

Because this is a SCOUTING TRIP this photo tour is offered at a very special low price: $2500 (all-inclusive; double occupancy – single is available).

Group size is limited to six (6)

During this Danube Delta photo tour, we’ll explore this biosphere reserve with cameras in-hand. This protected river network, famous with birders the world over, is Earth’s northernmost sub-tropical forest.

With over 5,500 species of flora and fauna, the Danube Delta is one of the world’s most bio-diverse places and hosts plenty of lens-fodder!

We already know birding here is awesome so we’ve organized this scouting trip to determine just how great the photography can be. As with our other scouting trips, this photo tour is offered only this once at this special price.

Mid-May is the to visit the Danube Delta. While the bird activity is at its peak, the temperatures are still relatively low compared to what they’ll be in the summer.

The Danube Delta is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and World Biosphere Reserve, encompassing about 1.6 million acres of rivers, canals, marshes, tree-fringed lakes, floating reed islands, and sand dunes. The waters of the Delta meander to the Black Sea.
