Itinerary

We will drive across the Antequera District “campiña” (farmlands) in search for the Little Bustard, a gem of Malaga’s birdlife that strives to survive in the last open fields amongst the expanding olive groves.

Our trip travels around the northeast of the Antequera District, from the heart of a fertile valley to a carpet of olive groves at the border with Cordoba province.
