Autumn Adventures

Dusk Safaris at Penhein

£25 per head, minimum spend £175. Children U5 go free
Min 7, maximum 15 (smalle groups can be accommodated but min spend applies)
Approx 1½ - 2 hours, sunset onwards

Experience the excitement of the hidden world of Penhein at night. Bats, Badgers, deer, Hedgehogs, owls and colourful moths roam the estate after the daytime creatures have gone to bed. Ed will be your guide at dusk, when you will listen to the echo-location of bats on specialised bat detectors and see what else is at large as the sun goes down. Ed will also explain how all these creatures are adapted to their nocturnal lifestyle and be more than happy to answer any questions you have. Get ready for your own wildlife adventure! Dusk Safari starts will range from a 19:30 start at the beginning of May to a 21:00 start in late June, to a 19:00 start at the end of September. They will also be weather dependent as rain, strong winds or low temperatures would mean the bats particularly won’t be active.
