Went on the Portland safari and enjoyed it greatly.Our driver/guide was excellent. Super commentary. Lovely cakes at half- time. The only slight problem was he had promised to drive us home, but failed to deliver on this promise.

Hi there Really sorry, we have had a few dogs over the years which have upset other customers with allergies etc. So sadly for that reason we only allow dogs if you are booking the whole 6 seats.
