Having enjoyed a rather wonderful tour with UK Wildlife Safaris last year – on which I was lucky enough to observe myriad species ranging from Pine Martens and Badgers to Bottlenose Dolphins – I thought I would draw attention to their business on this blog. Just in case any of my regular blog readers fancy a holiday in Northumberland, Durham, the Cairngorms or the Hebrides anytime soon. The paragraph below, taken from the UKWS website, provides a little more information about the company in the words of the professional ecologists behind it:
UK Wildlife Safaris offer wildlife tours and holidays at a variety of spectacular locations around the UK; bringing you up close and personal with some of the most iconic and endearing wildlife the British Isles has to offer.
Lead by a team of experienced ecologists, our personalised guided tours take in the untamed wilds of Mull and the Cairngorms National Park, the serene vistas of the Durham dales and the eclectic mix of habitats to be found in Northumberland – England’s last true wilderness. Across all destinations, we offer top quality accommodation in beautiful locations, the chance to engross yourself local history and jaw-dropping scenery and, of course, the opportunity to view a myriad species in their natural environment, including some of our nation’s most elusive and threatened residents. From Capercaillie, Red Squirrels and soaring Golden Eagles to Adders, dolphins, seals and seabirds, UK Wildlife Safaris offer something for everyone, no matter your interests.
All of our tours are informal, relaxed and undertaken to highest ethical standards; with guests free to take part in as many or as little of the organised activities as they wish. Our team pride ourselves on our ability to adapt our tours to the specific interests of our customers, so whether you enjoy hiking, history, shopping or even relaxing at base, we endeavour to make each and every tour an incredibly personal and enjoyable experience.
To book your own wild excursion, you can email UKWS at firstname.lastname@example.org or follow them on Twitter or Facebook. With trips that virtually guarantee exceptional encounters with exquisite wildlife, it really is worth getting in touch.
