The popular New Land is located in the National Park Nieuw Land and it spans around 6000 hectares of land. This vast expanse is situated directly between the popular Dutch cities of Lelystad and Almere. Exploring this park will surely make you feel like going on a wild safari and you are sure to lose yourselves in this irresistible natural environment. You can travel around the park on foot, bikes, or cars based on your convenience. It is to be noted that you can surely enjoy the diversity of the flora and fauna here no matter how you explore the park.
If you are lucky, you can see some rare varieties of migratory birds that stop by during the spring and autumn. Some birds tend to stick around throughout the year as well. So, never forget to grab your binoculars as you set out on your New Land wild safari. Otherwise, you may lose your golden opportunity to spot some wetland species like spoonbills, cormorants, egrets, bitterns, sea eagles, etc. The inland part of the reservation is relatively drier and home to some large grazers like Konik’s horses, Heck cattle, red deers, foxes, etc. Unlike the birds, it is easy to spot these big animals as they roam frequently through the park.
