Join me on a wildlife safari to explore the stunning landscapes and amazing wildlife of the Forest of Dean and Wye Valley. 

Private Bookings
To book a private safari or simply explore options please contact me direct or click here to see my bookings calendar with available dates and prices. I offer flexible walks and wildlife experiences for individuals, couples and groups of all ages, throughout the year. These can range from 2 hours long to a half or full day. 

Whether you would 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 prices are from £120 up to six people and then an additional £25 per person.
