Set the Alarm Clock
An alarm clock may be the best accessory if you are thinking of going on safari. Exmoor’s Red Deer get up early and don’t hang around for coffee. Observing the UK’s largest land mammal in their natural habitat is a joy, but not as easy as it sounds. Hunted for years for sport and meat the deer are, understandably, somewhat shy and wary. Tips such as wearing ‘dull’ clothes, keeping quiet and standing downwind from the herd all help, however local knowledge is invaluable. Go on safari with an experienced Exmoor guide and they’ll take you to the most likely places to spot these magnificent creatures.
