About Salisbury Plain Safaris
Giving visitors a chance to see Wiltshire’s best kept secret from the comfort of a Luxury off-road vehicle. Groups of up to six guests are able to visit Salisbury Plain and the surrounding areas, taking small highways and off road tracks that are inaccessible to the usual tour buses and taxis. As a licenced private hire company we are able to pick up and drop off guests at a given location, for example your Guesthouse or Salisbury City Centre. From here our enthusiastic explorers are whisked off for a fun filled tour of Europe’s largest chalk grassland. Our tours will include visits to sites of archaeological interest such as the 4000 yr. old hill fort Casterly Camp, as well as trips to see the extensive military encampments in the area and on selected days, trips across the firing ranges to see the shattered hulks of tanks used for target practice. Add in the chance to see rare wildlife such as Great Bustards or Stone Curlews and spectacular views and you have a fascinating experience that will be one of the highlights of your trip. Typically we offer tours in either a 2 or 4 hour format for up to 6 guests and all tours include refreshments (An English picnic on the longer tours).

Overview
Few tourists realise that there’s far more to Salisbury than just Stonehenge. See a side of Wiltshire that most first-time visitors miss during a private tour by Land Rover Defender. Traveling by all-terrain vehicle allows you to tackle uneven roads that are inaccessible by coach or car, while exploring with a private guide means that you’ll benefit from undivided attention and insider knowledge.

Fantastic 2 hour trip over the plains. James was able to answer every question, told some great local stories and bumped us through some huge puddles! His knowledge of all things military and wildlife met our interests perfectly and our pre-teens kids couldn't stop laughing as we bounced over the ruts in the Landrover. Highly recommend.

We had such a good time on our tour. James was really knowledgable about all the archaeological and military sites as well as stopping off to point out the interesting nature and geography. We thoroughly enjoyed the off roading, especially the huge puddles and mud. We appreciated the excellent communication during the booking process and being picked up from Salisbury for a small fee. Would highly recommend this experience! Thank you!

We absolutely loved this activity! Such a brilliant adventure for the entire family. There is something for everybody: nature, the thrill of off-road driving, beautiful Salisbury Plain itself, watching the army train and its unique training facilities, history. It really exceeded our expectations and we would definitely recommend this tour!

What an adventure! We were looking for something a bit different to do whilst visiting Coombe Bissett for a few days and were not disappointed. James (owner) took us on a private 4 x 4 on and off road tour across the plains, sharing his extensive knowledge about the livestock, flora and fauna and landscape with such enthusiasm. I just hope that he didn't end up with a headache after my screams of delight! His control of the Land Rover was top notch as he took us through deep water filled ditches. The most fun we have had in a long time. Thank you so much.
