More of a 'stand off' than a 'stampede' on safari today, as these young cattle did not want to get out of the water at Wrackleford river. Can't blame them really!

Beautiful views at 'Bat Head' today, overlooking Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door. On the way we passed this rather unusually named place!

We are often asked the question 'do sheep really get stuck on their backs and need to be helped up?' Well the answer is yes, and here's the proof! We turned this girl over at Kimmeridge today.

Plenty of wildlife on safari this week, along with some rare wild flowers. Here's an Early Purple Orchid, and our first ever, very rare, White Bluebell - apparently it's an albino version of the Spanish type Bluebell.
We also loved spending a few minutes watching this very cheeky young lamb!

There's nothing quite like a group of new born lambs rushing over to the Land Rover to see who's inside.

Hardy Country (Central Dorset)
Lasts 4 Hours
The Hardy Country safari covers some of the best known and loved countryside anywhere in Britain today.
Here you will taste and see something of what inspired Thomas Hardy to write so prolifically about his beloved county.
We travel along some hidden woodland byways, little used today, but bursting with wildlife.
We also view tried & tested courtyside skills that have been passed down from generation to generation.
Dorset is rich with local tales and links to famous people like ~ Laurence of Arabia ~ Admiral Hardy ~ The Powys family ~ The Tolpuddle Martyrs.
After traveling through Hardy's beloved towns of Weatherbury and Casterbridge, we cross more rivers.
Then climb high over Blackdown Hill to see the impresive views from Hardy's Monument. But how many Thomas Hardy's are there?
We will pass through countryside unchanged for 100s' of years. Very rarely there's a day when we don't encounter beautiful local wildlife!
We start and finish with stunning panoramic views of the World Heritage Coast. We believe that you will know and love Dorset more after this safari!
