Overview
A typical coach tour of the Algarve’s countryside can feel remote and observational. On this jeep safari, enjoy an intimate experience of rural culture, as the off-road vehicle accesses less frequented locations with ease. Visit an ancient castle, explore local villages and orange orchards, then brave a traditional firewater distillery. Choose a morning or afternoon excursion to suit your schedule, with hotel pickup and drop-off included.

We were picked up outside our Hotel to begin a half day Safari, it was a huge open top Jeep which looked more like The Scooby Bus! There was a great crowd in the Jeep and we all entertained each other. Our guide took us up and up and up on crazy roads until we reached the
