Really great experience I would defiantly recommend it. You get the chance to learn about Red Deer and feed them. It was really great getting so close.

Visited the Highland Safari to do the Red Deer and Barn Owl encounter. We were met by Ranger Steve who was very knowledgable and made it all very enjoyable as he made it fun too as there were young kids in the group also. Being able to feed the deer and get that close was amazing. Then we met the... More

When we arrived we had about 30 mins before we were to meet our guide for the afternoon so grabbed a coffee from the cafe inside the visitors centre which had... More

We were lucky to be able to book a trip at fairly late notice on account of them running some evening safaris for a limited period. The 2 other parties there at the same time had been once and twice before so our confidence levels were high to start with. Our guide was Tommy and he was very knowledgeable and... More

Delighted you enjoyed one of our last Summer Watch Safaris of the season and that the wildlife was in abundance! I will pass your comments to Tommy. We hope to be able to welcome you again in the future perhaps for an Autumn Watch, Winter Watch or Spring Watch Safari! Each has it's own magic. More

We took a family 6x6 ride through the Scottish highland forests. We drove through rivers, over ridges and walked the terrain in search of local plant life. We saw the tree farms used for logging, tracked the footprints of deer into the woods and picked local plants used in the field as an anti infection measure. Colin was entertaining and... More

We were a family of 8. We went on the forest safari - very friendly and knowledgable staff made for an engaging experience. We paired it with the gold and gem panning. 11yr old loved this, the younger kids 7 & 4 ran off to the nearby playground. Highly recommend adding the red deer and owl encounter. You learn loads...

Our driver was fantastic and we had great time driving the landrover too - amazing fun! Our afternoon gave us some great memories to go along with our memories of our wedding day with Highland Safaris. The scenery was... More

My wife and I booked a tour for Saturday 16th August for the 2 and a half hour tour. Our guide Tommy was very good and very knowledgable of the area and passionate about what he does and the local area. We saw a local of red deer and mountain hare, but unfortunately no birds of prey. The scenery is... More

Using £20 of Tesco vouchers covered the cost for 2 of us to do the Mountain Safari - an amazing offer!
