On returning from a walking safari in Zambia it struck us that we could apply the same principles to tracking and enjoying our native wildlife and grazing animals.
We will plan your walk to give the maximum chance of seeing wildlife, including the native Exmoor Red Deer, Exmoor ponies and the fabulous Highland cattle that have been introduced to graze the moor……come in Spring when the woolly calves and foals make irresistable photo opportunities.
Exmoor Horn lambs have to be up there amongst the cutest yet with their “little devil” horn buds and the moorland birds on Exmoor include plentiful buzzards, meadow pipits and skylarks as well as the less common such as the beautiful Hen harrier which is increasingly being seen on Exmoor.
We can also create a safari to take in archeological sites, industrial heritage or picturesque churches or iron age hill forts….just let us know where your interests lie.
- Enjoy Sundowners at Dunkery Beacon and spot Red Deer on the way home…..probably watching us watching them!
- Barbecue at Hurlestone Point whilst looking out over the sea for porpoise and dolphins.
- Visit the medieval village where the legendary “Doone Clan” are thought to have lived.
- Check out The Incline at Chargot Woods; a miracle of 19th century engineering
- Stroll amongst the Prehistoric Barrows of the ancient ridgeway following the SW border of Exmoor Forest, with a choice of pubs for lunch.
- Explore Martinhoe Beacon, a small Roman military post from AD 55-70 in a spectacular position between Heddons Mouth and Woody Bay, great walking country.
