About Salisbury Plain Safaris
Giving visitors a chance to see Wiltshire’s best kept secret from the comfort of a Luxury off-road vehicle. Groups of up to six guests are able to visit Salisbury Plain and the surrounding areas, taking small highways and off road tracks that are inaccessible to the usual tour buses and taxis. As a licenced private hire company we are able to pick up and drop off guests at a given location, for example your Guesthouse or Salisbury City Centre. From here our enthusiastic explorers are whisked off for a fun filled tour of Europe’s largest chalk grassland. Our tours will include visits to sites of archaeological interest such as the 4000 yr. old hill fort Casterly Camp, as well as trips to see the extensive military encampments in the area and on selected days, trips across the firing ranges to see the shattered hulks of tanks used for target practice. Add in the chance to see rare wildlife such as Great Bustards or Stone Curlews and spectacular views and you have a fascinating experience that will be one of the highlights of your trip. Typically we offer tours in either a 2 or 4 hour format for up to 6 guests and all tours include refreshments (An English picnic on the longer tours).

Few tourists realise that there’s far more to Salisbury than just Stonehenge. See a side of Wiltshire that most first-time visitors miss during a private tour by Land Rover Defender. Traveling by all-terrain vehicle allows you to tackle uneven roads that are inaccessible by coach or car, while exploring with a private guide means that you’ll benefit from undivided attention and insider knowledge.

Discover a swathe of England that’s hard to access independently—Salisbury Plain, home to the UK’s largest military training area. Roar down off-road tracks and country lanes in a 4WD as you admire Iron Age hill forts, giant chalk horses, country towns and villages, and perhaps even military camps and firing ranges.
