Birding

Lot of birders come to Hungary to discover the Westernmost edge of the Asiatic steppe what we locally call Puszta which still exists in Central Europe. The best example you can find in Kiskunsag National Park.

Ecotours Kondor EcoLodge is in the middle of this interesting protected area which covers huge, different habitats ranging from moving sand dunes through steppes, alkaline and freshwater lakes, meandering riverine forests, oxbow lakes, wooded pastures and mixed forests. Because of this great variety of habitats the area offers fantastic birding with loads of interesting, characteristic species from Great Bustard, Stone Curlew, Tawny Pipit through Saker and Red-footed Falcon, White-tailed, Short-toed & Imperial Eagle till colourful Roller, Bee-eater, Golden Oriole, Hoopoe, Nightjar, just to mention a few. You can find more detailed list of birds in our area by clicking here.

You can make several outings during the days of your stay at Kondor EcoLodge and visit most of the best areas of the Kiskunság National Park

Kiskunság Steppes & Bükk Hills, Hungary

Kiskunság Steppe or Puszta can be combined with one of our favourites, the Bukk Hills and in this way you can discover two excellent National Parks with completely different habitats, thus species. Beside the previously mentioned grassland species in the vast beechwoods you will have a good chance for Ural & Eagle Owl, almost all European Woodpecker species, Red-breasted Flycatcher, Hawfinch and other woodland species.

Kiskunság, Hungary & Pol'ana, Slovakia

Another unique combination is Kiskunság Puszta & an ancient Volcano, Pol'ana in Slovakia. This hilly region is also close to Budapest, but has higher elevation than Bukk Hills in Hungary, so again offers different species such as Pygmy Owl, Firecrest, Three-toed Woodpecker and perhaps even Tengmalm's Owl & Brown Bear.
