Quality – Nature – Tranquillity

You are here : Home » Camping Blog » Nature

Through these blog posts we share with you our oasis of nature in the heart of beautiful Bulgarian countryside. Our campers are immersed and surrounded by wildlife and flora at its finest. We believe nature is an essential part of camping.  For us it is being at one with the time of day, seasons, the weather. That feeling of insignificance under the enormity of the night sky.

Nature in Bulgaria can be exciting, dramatic, peaceful and inspirational.  I will never fail to be dazzled by the fireflies each May and June when they dance and hover in the hedgerows on balmy evenings.  Storks make their ungainly flights to balance precariously on huge nests on tall columns as the first welcomers at the entrance to Dragizhevo Village.

  • Fireflies


    Fireflies are enchanting creatures. To some they are dancing fairies, to others miniature lanterns glowing in the warm night air. To most they are a nostalgic symbol of summer and remind people of warm balmy nights. In Bulgaria we see the first ones in late May and they finish their illuminating display by the end […]

  • Golden Jackals

    Golden Jackals

    Golden Jackals live in our valley. They are very timid and in all the years we have lived here, we have never seen one in person. We are sometimes lucky enough to catch them on our wildlife camera, but they hide away when they see us. The ones in our valley are well-fed and healthy. […]
