This week we completed our 800th Safari, and then this morning had to pull over to let this vehicle go past - now that’s what you call real horse power!

We’re covering a lot of miles during this our busiest time of year, but the ‘Landy’ is rock solid and never misses a beat!

We saw plenty of deer, even a woodpecker, but couldn’t get a picture of them, however the view towards Portland this evening is worth a look!

Isle of Portland (4 people min)
Lasts 2 Hours (Evenings only)
The Isle of Portland safari has a wonderful blend of the old & the new. We start off by driving through the national sailing academy ~ here we see where 64 national teams fought it out during the 2012 Olympic games ~ and where Ben Ainslie battled back to beat the ‘Great Dane' Hogh-Christensen to win gold for Team GB.
We then climb 400 ft and learn about Portlands bloody history and for some spectacular views over the heart of the Jurassic coast.
As well as seeing castles, prisons, quarries and shipwrecks there are some fascinating local tales that will amaze you!
We identify some of the familiar sights, that litter the Portland landscape. No trip to Portland would be complete without visiting Portland Bill lighthouse and the Culverwel, oldest stone structure in the UK.
We briefly stop for the stunning views over the 17 mile Chesil beach. Then drop down into Chiswell site of the 1824 tsunami.
Here we can see the Chesil beach up close and personal, complete with local lerrets!
The West weares of Portland are one of the nesting and hunting grounds of the Peregrine falcon.
