Exmoor was brought to life by Eddie who obviously loves and adores Exmoor. His love comes through whilst he weaves his story sharing his knowledge in a quiet and unassuming way. 3 of us learned about (and saw) Red Deer, the make up of the landscape from prehistoric times to the present day including being shown a Bronze Age Burial...

Recently took a 3 hour morning safari on Exmoor with a Ranger by Landrover. Remember, the Ranger know's the area but wildlife may not oblige! However, we spotted a seal off Foreland Poi nt (by lighthouse), Exmoor ponies (close up), Red Deer (distanced, but with binoculars), 2 x Kestrels and a Hobby. Not bad! We were taken to various points... More

We went with Eddie, leaving at 0930 and returning 1230pm. Perfect weather and outstanding views and Eddie takes you to places you will never drive to in your own car. Eddie is full of local knowledge and this trip is a 'must' when you staying or visiting Exford

We had a very exciting afternoon bumping across Exmoor in the company of the enthusiastic Richard. As well as learning a lot about Porlock and Exmoor we saw Exmoor ponies, and as a climax some red deer. It was a memorable experience.

We picked a bad day, but the old Landrover was most uncomfortable in the back and visibility was poor - partly due to the rain. Not recommended for older visitors. There was no off road which we expected.

Was this review helpful? Yes
PeterHendrie, Manager at Exmoor Safari, responded to this review

Many apologies for your disappointment but the weather is the one thing that is definitely out of our control! We apologise if you expected to go "off road" but this is not something we advertise as the moor is very strictly supervised by landowners and off roading is not allowed as such, only on authorised RUPPS which we do use....

A fascinating opportunity to see the 'real Exmoor' and the beautiful countryside which you would not be able to reach by car.

The aim of The Exmoor Safari is to show you places that you probably wouldn't visit under your own steam, as well as to give a real in-depth knowledge of Exmoor, its history, its wildlife and all that it has to offer. We are pleased to hear that it lived up to expectations. Thank you More
