Meeting point is in Swanage, although an alternative pick up and drop off location may be possible. Book now for a safari to remember!!


Half Day (4 Hour) Safari

Swanage    Meeting at this beautiful seaside town, all adventurers board the Defender at 8.30am (morning safari) or 1.30pm (afternoon safari). Your guide Mark will provide a brief introduction to the safari before we head out of town to explore.

*Alternative meeting locations / times may be possible. 

Corfe Castle   In our customised Land Rover Defender 110, the safari will head over the hills high above Corfe Castle with spectacular views of Purbeck and beyond. Our Safari guide will drive off-road at a comfortable pace to enjoy the views. A stop at the top of the hill is a must where the views are incredible, plus potential for a quick stop in the village if you're keen.


South West Coast Path   Heaven's Gate at Kimmeridge Bay Safari guide will again head off road and take a long narrow path to the top of Heaven's Gate and along the cliff path. The view is probably the best in Dorset and not accessible without Dorset Safari's trusty Land Rover Defender. We'll stop for a stretch of legs and a nice tea / coffee and home made cake!


Tyneham Village   With your safari guide, explore the lost village of Tyneham, the picturesque village left abandoned during WW2. Learn about how the locals had to leave their homes, which was then used in the war effort as a military training area. To this day, Tyneham is only open seasonally. An option for an alternative stop will be made if the village is closed.


Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door   Our final stop is to the iconic Durdle Door and Lulworth Cove, both fully deserving of their fabulous reputation and must see destinations. Time available for you to head down to the Man-O-War Beach or stretch your legs taking the Jurassic Coast walk to Lulworth Cove for pick up. This truly is a fantastic end to the day before heading back to Swanage.

Full Day (7.5 Hour) Safari

Private Safari Booking for up to 6 Passengers - £749

Additional Time To Explore    This is our classic Jurassic Coast & Purbeck safari with all the experiences above, but with much more time to enjoy and explore the stunning locations of Corfe Castle, Heaven's Gate, Lulworth, Tyneham and Durdle Door with our 4x4 guide. With the additional time, we can also bespoke the safari to your wishes. Perhaps a visit to a local cider maker or Kimmeridge Bay for fossil hunting?

Refreshments and home-made cake is provided on this safari. 

Time includes stop for lunch, where we can recommend and take you to some great Dorset pubs or tea rooms. 

Arrival back to the meeting point estimated to be 4pm (please ask for alternative timings if required)
