The Exmoor National Park is one of the most beautiful parts of England, and for our next Exmoor holiday we're hoping to sample one of the Exmoor luxury safaris arranged by a company called Experience Exmoor.
Experience Exmoor offers guided safari tours ranging in length from 1hr 30mins to a full day. Thanks to special licences the company has with both the National Park and the National Trust, their tours will show you places you would not be able to visit by yourself.
Exmoor Luxury Safari Options
Thanks to an arrangement with the National Trust, Experience Exmoor has access to the track that leads to Foreland Point, the most northerly point on the Devon coast. Here you'll naturally find impressive views of this impressive coast, a secluded lighthouse, and a good chance to see Exmoor ponies and herds of red deer, hiding out in this area that's off-limits to most people.
Half-day safaris last for about 3hrs and leave in the morning and again in the afternoon. They allow you to see both the coast and inland Exmoor, for a great variety of scenery.
Lasting for 7hrs, the full-day safari also covers both inland and coastal Exmoor.
The company offers a couple of other short safaris lasting just 1hr 30mins. One is a short off-road trip that takes you out to show you some of the amazing coastal scenery, and is ideal if you don't wish to, or cannot, walk too far. The other short trip takes you to Watersmeet, an idyllic place where two rivers meet in a steep wooded valley. Again, if you have trouble walking these safaris are a great way to allow you to see some of Exmoor's loveliest spots.
Experience Exmoor will also arrange customised tours, and from time to time throughout the year they organise Special Exmoor Safari Days. These might combine a regular safari with other activities such as walking, clay pigeon shooting, luxury picnics, Exmoor pony photo safaris or other events. More details are on the Special Events page of their website.
