This 4 hours tour will take you to a different world where the time seems to be stopped. Our Land Rovers are hard top for safety and comfort of the guests. During our safari we will cross old villages with its moorish cheminés, drive off road, crossing streams in large fruit plantations, traversing valleys where orange trees and almond trees are everywhere. Stop for learning all about cork oaks and the cork industry.

Near a beautiful spring in a small tradicional village called Alte we will discover the “springs” where you will be able to swim or just relax. To rich the top we will drive to the highest point in this area to enjoy a breathtaking view and on the way we visit a private farm where you can sample the local liqueurs and natural fruit jams. The “firewater” is home made so, super special and the natural fruit jams are 100% biological.

★★★★★ Reviewed by Virginie on 2018-08-12
Nous voulions découvrir l’Algarve autrement et le safari est une belle excursion pour ça. Notre guide Gil, qui parle très bien le français, a été très agréable, marrant, securisant et a pris le temps de nous faire découvrir la nature : plantes sauvages, histoire... Nous avons dégusté et acheté du miel au producteur.Nous avons adoré faire cette activité en jeep ! Un des meilleurs moments de nos vacances ! C’était le jour des 20ans de ma fille et Gil a été très attentionné pour lui souhaiter son anniversaire avec les participants des autres jeeps. Merci Gil! Je vous conseille donc vivement cette activité.

Great day! Couldn't recommend enough !

We were picked up at our apartment and brought to a farm where we got to try lots of local jams and some honey; including their local carob and algarve orange jam. We also tried some firewater (moonshine). We had a great tour guide Gil who told us lots abouts the fruits and stopped along the way to give us information on the plants which grow in the area. We then went to a lovely little village which was very scenic and had coffee and Portuguese cakes in a little cafe. Then Gil brought us to a swimming pool which had fresh water from the mountains close by. It was amazing. The water was so clear and fresh and the area was very pretty. Such a lovely day, would definitely recommend. We did the half day but I would do the full day if I was going back because it was such a fun and lovely day.

We went for the half-trip, our guide (who came from Mars) was very friendly and gave us a great ON-ROAD and off-road trip in the mainland of Algarve with explanations about the flora and fauna. We had a great time!
