The Lobo Wolf Park At Antequera in Southern Spain


This is an area next to El Torcal where Wolves live effectively in the wild though a few of them have been socialised.  The park is in the middle of nowehere and finding it is not always so easy situated around an hour north of Malaga but not well known. Even when one arrives in Antequera it is hard to find with  the Spanish not putting signposting high on their agenda.

The options are to go on a small group tour , maybe 6-10 people each tour, sometimes less, or book a photographers tour which they do 10 am when the light is at its best and still quite warm, and that is done with a private guide who also allows you to throw food to the Wolves. Some of the panels in the fences can be removed and at times the Wolves were within feet of myself and my camera.

The photographs speak for themselves really. From around 300 photos I have tried to select here the top 15 which is not easy. There are a mixture of young and old wolves. Alpha males and bottom of the food chain. Enjoy.

I have also put the photos on my photo website Chrisbushephotography.com where it is easier to view them full size
