Clive spent over 4 years running the tourist information office in the village of Grazalema and dealing with over 2000 visitors to his office every month takes its toll so getting out and about is also important. A published writer, photographer and web designer Clive takes care of the website, bookings and is also a great walking guide. 🙂

During the many years that she has lived in Grazalema Sue has been learning about the local animal and plant life. Many visitors come to see the wildflowers (with several local endemic species) and especially the terrestrial orchids, the birdlife, dragonflies and of course the protected Spanish Fir tree (Abies pinsapo).

For some visitors just a glimpse in passing is enough, or perhaps knowing their identity would be rewarding, whilst others will have target species sent in a wish list before their arrival. She adapts to each of these needs, offering as much detail as is enjoyed in an infectious manner.

Her popular photographic exhibitions have focused on what you can see in the mountain range through the seasons. “Studying how our natural surroundings change through the year has taught me what to look for, during which month, and where to go.” This is essential if you are visiting to see specific species – or a great bonus to have the highlights pointed out while you are enjoying the scenery on one of our walks.
