We thoroughly enjoyed our safari with Daphne up on Exmoor. She had a very detailed knowledge of the area and we learnt many facts about the wildlife and local area. Although it was a rather cold, dull day we managed to see some wonderful sights including beautiful Highland cows, Exmoor ponies and a couple of sightings of herds of red... More

My husband and I went on this safari a week ago. Daphne had incredible knowledgeable of the local area from the herds of deer, ponies and the land. Furthermore we were really lucky with the weather and had a clear, sunny day which allowed us to see several herds of deer on the moors. We also drove in the woodland... More

The safari was great way to enjoy the country side and the animals. The driver took us around some of the places that we would have not seen if we travelling around our selves. The guide was very informative. Would highly recommend.

Thank you very much for taking us over Exmoor on Saturday afternoon, we would never have done or seen what we did without you. We shall return at a different time of year, to see other animals and scenery. Well worth every minute.

Nice drive around part of Exmoor with a lovely lady who gave us loads of info and lively conversation. Saw plenty of wildlife, sadly the deer were few and distant on our trip but that really didn't matter, it's never guaranteed on these sorts of excursions anyway. We did see loads of sheep, ponies and birds, not to mention a... More

Exmoor was brought to life by Eddie who obviously loves and adores Exmoor. His love comes through whilst he weaves his story sharing his knowledge in a quiet and unassuming way. 3 of us learned about (and saw) Red Deer, the make up of the landscape from prehistoric times to the present day including being shown a Bronze Age Burial...

Both ourselves and Eddie personally, truly value all your comments. It is people such as Eddie, with his love and enthusiasm for this lovely part of England, that makes Exmoor such a special place for so many people. Thank you More

Recently took a 3 hour morning safari on Exmoor with a Ranger by Landrover. Remember, the Ranger know's the area but wildlife may not oblige! However, we spotted a seal off Foreland Poi nt (by lighthouse), Exmoor ponies (close up), Red Deer (distanced, but with binoculars), 2 x Kestrels and a Hobby. Not bad! We were taken to various points... More
