Wildlife Safari Kostilkovo

Location: Ivaylovgrad, Pelevun

For a nice and wild impression of the nature in the most soutnern parts of the Rhodope Mountains you have to join this excursion which is headed by our local guide Todor. He was living for all his life in Ivaylovgrad area and knows everything about the history, nature and wildlife of the region. With his 4 x 4 car he will drive you through the landscape to show you the most interesting features of the area.

One of the highlights is the visit of Kostilkovo, an abandoned village near the border with Greece. In this village, where are only two inhabitants left, Karakachan horses are introduced a few years ago. This Karakachan horse is a local primitive breed, extremely durable and adapted to whole year round ways of living. From strong winters with a lot of snow to the hot summer days in July and August. The horses are relatively small and strong. Todor will show you the horses while walking through the tough nature.

Especially in Spring you will also find many Orchids and birds (including raptors), reptiles and turtles. A nice outdoor picnic is part of this safari tour as well.
