We are running Deer Rut Safaris on Sunday 21st October – not only can you enjoy a ride on the Tractor & Trailer around the Stourton Estate through woodland and into the deer enclosure to see our herd of Red Deer also included with your ticket is the option of wandering around the aboretum to find the pumpkins on our Pumpkin Trail!
This is a lovely experience for the whole family to enjoy the autumn colours, get up close and personal with the Red Deer before going to the aboretum to find your way along the pumpkin trail. We will also be serving light refreshments, soup, rolls, teas, coffees and home-made cakes from our horsebox cafe before enjoying them in the shelter of the safari tent.
These Deer Rut Safaris are limited in number so booking is essential, they will last just over an hour. Infants under 2 are free of charge, but must sit on knees.
A Compost Toilet is on site, should you need this facility!
Please read the Visitor Information tab (above) that has full details of where to meet to join the safaris. Unfortunately if you are unable to make it to the start point by the tour leave time, in order to be fair to other passengers we will have to start the safari, however if there are places on an alternative tour you may be able to join that one instead.
