Spring safaris to see the newborn calves and
autumn safaris during the rutting season
Visitors get the unique opportunity to observe deer at close quarters with our Bucklebury Farm Park deer safari.
The special dawn and dusk safaris run over two weekends in the spring and autumn. The safaris are tailored to small groups and give visitors unique access to the farm’s herd of Red, Japanese Sika, Axis and Fallow deer.
The spring safaris give the breathtaking sight of newborn calves often only a few hours old while the pace changes in the autumn giving a new insight into the life of the herd as the drama of the rutting season unfolds.
Ideal for nature enthusiasts and photographers, you can choose from two options both including welcome refreshments followed by a talk about the deer, a guided walk and park safari with the, chance to take photograph followed by a ranger’s breakfast or a barbeque supper. Booking in advance is essential as the groups are small.
- Includes Safari plus breakfast or supper. The full English breakfast includes our own fresh farm eggs, pork and leek or wild boar and apple sausage*, locally smoked bacon*, vine tomatoes, field mushrooms and a basket of locally baked rolls plus fresh coffee, tea, hot chocolate and pressed apple juice. Supper will be from our seasonal safari menu. Depending on the weather the safari breakfast or supper is served either in Woody’s Cafe or on warmer days you can dine al fresco with a woodland barbeque served in a magical, sheltered clearing under a canopy with fine views over the deer park.
