Our UK wildlife safaris are based in Dorset near the picturesque market town of Wareham. Where we can recommend accommodation options varying from five star country hotels to local B&B’s and country pubs. Our safaris run each weekend throughout the year, with group sizes being 1-4 persons.

Day 1: Friday PM
Our local guide will either meet you at a pre-arranged place at the entrance to your first evening guided walk, or your accommodation at around 16:00 (times vary across the seasons).
From here you will take a guided nature walk to through away from public areas where the resident wildlife is undisturbed.

Day 2: Saturday
Today you will be able to enjoy a dawn (and later) dusk nature walk in private forests, accompanied by your guide. Each walk will be approximately two hours, of easy walking and stalking in the forest. Your guide will stop frequently to let you know more about the flora and fauna, tracks of animals and their behaviour, as you search for the forests abundant wildlife species. As with any safari, no two nature walks are the same, different conditions apply at dawn and dusk which affect animals behaviour, but rest assured that you are in the hands of very experienced guides who know every nook and crook of the forest and aim to find you as many animals to watch as possible.
You are likely to see Sika Deer, Roe Deer, Foxes, Badgers, smaller mammals and a multitude of seasonal birdlife.
During the middle of the day you have free time to visit the numerous visitor attractions in the area, perhaps enjoy a country pub lunch, or visit to a farmers market.

Day 3: Sunday AM
On your final morning, you can once again enjoy a two hour guided nature walk at dawn as the sun rises over the forest. A truly magical time to be in the forest away from the hustle and bustle of normal life.
