Manfred Grossman, the Director of the Hainich National Park (Germany), visited the Astrakhan Reserve with a group of German tourists in May 2019. At the request of our colleague, professionally keen on bird watching, we developed а new ecological tour “Around the Delta in 10 Days”. Tour participants watched birds not only on the territory of the Astrakhan reserve in the Volga delta, but also got the opportunity to visit the Big Bogdo mountain, and also got to know with the inhabitants of other unique landscapes of the delta – sand dunes and steppe lakes. In addition, the program included visits to other interesting sites – the sturgeon farm, the historical complex “Sarai Batu” and the Stepnoy wildlife sanctuary, where saigas are protected.

We would like to thank you for the wonderful days spent in the Astrakhan nature reserve. We are still in awe of the variety of fauna and flora that we have seen… Acquaintance with the nature of the reserve, a new eco-trail, a tower – everything was organized as well as possible!
