Red Stag Safaris
Exmoor Safaris by Exmoor people
We will take you on a Safari over wild Exmoor to show you the rugged coastline, heather moors, steeply sloping combes with ancient woodland and fast flowing rivers.
We believe you should enjoy your safari in comfort so we were the first operator to use a Land Rover Discovery which is more comfortable than the LR Defender used by most operators.
Our Discovery 4 has air suspension giving a softer ride than the more rigid bumpy suspension in the Defender. There is air conditioning, more seating space and legroom and better visibility through larger windows compared to the Defender. The Discovery has the legendary off road ability of Land Rover combined with the comfort of a luxury car.
We take smaller groups than some so passengers are not cramped. All seats are forward facing. We are fully licensed by West Somerset Council and insured – some operators are not – Beware!
RSS is run by Andrew Turner, who is Somerset born and bred. His family have lived and farmed on Exmoor for over 200 years. Andrew is the guide who will use his local knowledge and experience gained from a lifetime on Exmoor to ensure you have the best chance of seeing the wildlife including the Exmoor Ponies, Red Deer and Birds of Prey. He will take you to remote places and to the best vantage points to enjoy the panoramic scenery, explain the geology, history and customs of the Moor. He will show you the bronze age settlements with their cairns, barrows and standing stones. You will ford rivers, see the Doone Valley and hear the tale of Lorna Doone. Learn about farming practices from someone who has actually worked on Exmoor Farms.
