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. 

In light of the ongoing situation with COVID-19 the Wildlife Trust BCN has taken the difficult decision to cancel all organised events initially until June 13th. We will provide updates regarding the rest of the Bat Safari season in the coming weeks.
