During this tour you will have the opportunity to observe these fantastic birds in their natural environment.

Bird’s wing span is about 3m, weight – up to 11 kg which makes this griffon biggest bird in Serbia.

Uvac-meandriUvac meanders

Griffon vulture is not the only attraction of the Reserve; this is why the tour goes on a water way from the dam up to meanders. For centuries Uvac has been making its way through mountains leaving deep meanders and creating caves that annually attract lots of tourists. During sailing on meanders we’ll stop by Ice and Ušač caves, and the strongest of us way try to climb to the observation platform that offers one of the beautiful views in Serbia.
