Cormorant Complex

Hotel category:

Rating:

Country: Romania

Region: Danube delta, Tulcea County

We speak: English, Deutch, Français, Română

Location: Sited on an island located in a broad meander of the famed Danube Delta, 24 miles of the City of Tulcea, the Cormorant Complex lies within the embrace of this internationally renowned wetland. Arriving by a short boat journey, birdwatching visitors are immediately thrust into the heart of a bird-rich environment. Excellent birdwatching commences at the very doorstep of the accommodation complex, from which boat excursions quickly access prime sites around the delta.

Services: Birdwatching is highly productive during every season of the year. White-tailed Eagles, for example may be seen around the site at all times. With the arrival of spring there is a veritable invasion of birds, including all European herons, Spoonbills, the two pelican species, Pygmy Cormorants, Glossy Ibis, Pallas's Gull, terns including Caspian, plus Paddyfield Warblers among an array of small passerines. Huge numbers of raptors, waders and waterfowl pass over during autumn migration and, in winter, flocks of the globally-threatened Red-breasted Goose and other notable species including the Greater Spotted Eagle, are a sight to behold. Three experienced English/ German/French-speaking bird guides are available at any time, able to present current updates on bird activity and provide diverse means of transport (boats, horses etc.), also optics if required.

Guestrooms: The hotel carries a 3-star rating and provides 34 double/twin en-suite rooms plus 2 apartments. In addition there are 10 comfortable self-contained villas (each with 4 double en-suite rooms) and a further 4 villas with spacious apartments - ideally suited for families or small groups. All rooms are fitted with mosquito screens. There are also conference halls, internet facilities and, of course, excellent restaurants - indoor or outdoor dining - serving local and international cuisine, including traditional Danube river fish, and catering exceptionally well for vegetarian tastes (much of the produce is grown on site).

* Please note that the English bird names on this site follow the American terminology. If you can't find a species name, try searching by Family or latin name.
Status key: B = breeding species; RB - rare breeding; W = winter only; V - vagrant; RV = rare vagrant; TM - trans-migrant; In - introduced
