We can see thousands of flamingos and hundreds of shore and water birds accompanying them by entering the coastal marshes in the Gediz Delta. Our boat is small, it was designed not to disturb them. The engine also runs very quietly. We can observe the natural life here without causing any harm. Our bus tour with a quota of 35 people also starts from Sasalı Wildlife Park. We are going to the farthest point of the South Gediz Delta, the land. In addition to flamingos, we can see land species and mammals. “People are fascinated by the beauty they see.”
