A nature lover’s paradise

Its ‘locals’ include not just residents of the feathered kind but wild varieties of deer, cattle and Konik ponies. If you don’t have your own professional equipment, stop by De Oostvaarder, the official visitor centre. As well as a café with a panoramic view, there’s an exhibition, video room, viewing areas with telescopes looking out across the park and park rangers who enjoy talking about the wildlife that can be seen.
