Bat Safari Punting

Bat Safari Punt Tours

Wildlife Trust Bat Safari Punting

Huge thanks to everyone who came down and joined us for this year’s Bat Safari season from the Scudamores team and the Wildlife Trust. We saw a record high attendance of more than 1000 people and this year together we’ve raised more than £10,000 that will go towards Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Northamptonshire Wildlife Trust.

Join us again next year from May until late September.

Exact dates and tickets will be available in March.

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.
