Camargue : Flamingoes, wild horses of Camargue and black bulls
THE NATURAL PARK OF CAMARGUE
Covering most of the delta of the Rhone, the Camargue regional park is a 75,000 hectare (185,000 acre) marshland paradise, where tens of thousands of pink flamingos fly gracefully over bulls and pure white horses.
It is a birder’s paradise, where herons, egrets, pink flamingoes, and dozens of other species come to nest and fish in the shallow.
You can also cross the way of wild horses and black bulls.
This is preserved nature as far as the eye can see :
tiny roads and tracks allowing you to explore the park by foot, by horse, or by bike, and observe over 350 species of birds that come to reproduce and nest in the park.
The northern boundary of the Camargue is the city of Arles, with its rich and well-conserved Roman history. On the sea is the town of Saintes Maries de la Mer, with its white homes, beautiful beaches, and strong gipsy influence.
