Private bookings and vouchers
To book a private safari, buy a voucher or simply explore options please contact me direct or click here to see my bookings calendar with available dates and prices. I offer flexible and accessible wildlife experiences for individuals, couples and groups of all ages and backgrounds, throughout the year. These can range from two hours long to a half or full day. Please get in touch if you would like to discuss any particular requirements you might have.
You may like to:
Listen for woodland birds on a dawn chorus or evening birdsong walk;
Look for elusive and shy wild boar or deer;
Listen for 'churring' nightjars and roding woodcock;
Discover butterflies and trees;
Or explore the forest for its special birds such as hawfinches, crossbills and peregrines.
Prices will vary depending on the offer. For example, for a 2 hour evening session in the Forest of Dean, prices are from £125 up to four people and then an additional £25 per person.
If you are staying in one of the treehouses at Elmore Court, near Gloucester, I also offer safaris around the estate which is enabling wildlife populations and their habitats to regenerate. I would travel over from the Forest of Dean and take you out wildlife watching for two hours, starting from your treehouse and exploring the woodland, hedgerows, pasture and watery spaces. Prices start from £195 for up to four people and then an additional £25 per person.
