Bat Safari Punting

Bat Safari Punt Tours

Wildlife Trust Bat Safari Punting

Join the Wildlife Trust on a Bat Safari punt for adventures at dusk towards Grantchester Meadows.

Grab this chance to see our fantastic local bat population as they emerge from hibernation in May and follow their activities until their return to a snug hideout for winter. 

The tours are led by knowledgeable Wildlife Trust Bat Experts and they'll make sure you get the most from your experience. The tours are chauffeured and include the use of specialist electronic bat detectors which convert the bats' sonar signals into audible frequencies.

Your guide will outline the characteristics and habitats of bats likely to be encountered on your trip and teach you how to use the detectors. You'll identify exactly which species of bat are flying close to your punt and find out about our amazing local species. 



Our 2017 season has finished

This season has been absolutely amazing for our Bat Safari tours and we have been able to raise over £8,700 for the Wildlife Trust through ticket sales.

We have been overjoyed to hear all the wonderful stories from our customers and look forward to welcoming you back for our 2018 season.

We will of course be organising Bat Safari tours for 2018 and are currently in talks with the Wildlife Trust regarding the dates and times. Please keep an eye on this page during early 2018 for when the tickets go on sale.
