Wildlife Trust Bat Safari Punting

2021 Bat Safari Season Announcement:

We're working with the Wildlife Trust to bring back the bat safaris to you. The earliest start would be once no distancing restrictions are in place - 21st June 2021. Precise dates, times and prices would be availalbe 2 to 3 weeks before lifting of the restrictions.

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.
