On our safari, we take you on an off-road adventure around the Ingram Valley to explore and discover what makes this beautiful valley so special. Your driver and guide will take you on an unforgettable journey to discover farming life, ancient landscapes, wildlife and some remarkable views.
The Safari is perfect for families, special occasions and special days, so please let us know what you are celebrating and we'll go the extra mile for you.
We take you back in time to see Bronze and Iron archaeology, BIG SKY views and a degree of tranquillity that is hard to beat. From the summit of Cochrane Pike at 1,100 feet (335 metres), you see the high Cheviot Hills, the distant sea and all the way south to the Pennine Hills, the backbone of England.
Ingram Valley Farm has native cattle, sheep and a herd of over 100 red deer. We get to meet them all on Safari. We discover the farming year, so in the Spring, the lambs and calves are being born, in the Summer, the delightful red deer calves arrive. In early Autumn, you will hear and see the red deer stags as they bellow their defiant roars across the valley, it's an extraordinary sound.
In Spring, the call of the sky lark is everywhere. On Safari, in early Spring, we also see curlew, oystercatcher, meadow pipit and lapwing. They are in the Ingram Valley to breed and raise their chicks high up on the valley hills.
From April to the end of October, the Safari is 3-hours and includes a picnic. Between the end of October to April, it's 2-hours and we don't include a picnic.
