Half-Day Safaris

guided by Penny Green, Mike Russell and Laurie Jackson

Guided by one of our expert ecologists and carefully tailored to suit the season and weather conditions, your safari will take you to current ‘hot spots’ of natural interest.

Summer is alive with dragonflies, bats and moths, and numerous butterflies – including the spectacular purple emperor.

Autumn sees the emergence of fungi - including rare wax caps, and the drama of the deer rut.

You’re very likely to see our herds of large herbivores – longhorn cattle, Exmoor ponies, Tamworth pigs, red and fallow deer – as they roam through the Wildland. Birds are present in huge numbers all year round.

We’ll stop at some of our wildlife ‘refugia’ to look for slow-worms, grass-snakes, toads, field-mice and voles, and cross our fingers for a sighting of stoats, weasels, red kites, buzzards and ravens. Our spectacular tree-platforms offer panoramic views and a close-up of life in the canopy.

Our safari vehicles are all-terrain, open-sided 14 seater Pinzgauers (Austrian Troop Carriers).

Half-way through your safari we’ll stop in a beautiful spot for coffee, tea and cake.

Unfortunately we cannot offer a refund or alternative date for your safari booking. We also cannot guarantee the great British weather, or that you will see your target species. Nature is unpredictable! However we’re confident you’ll enjoy your experience with us, come rain or shine, and there’s always plenty of wildlife to see.
