We are a family of four and we thoroughly enjoyed our trip to see the beavers. We arrived in Alyth and took a short drive to the estate where Daniele told us about the beavers, their habitat and their lifestyle. Straight away we saw signs of the beavers' work - cut down trees, nibbled bark and large wide trails. We visited the dams and then sat still for a while to see if we could spot a beaver and they did not disappoint as two appeared, swam fairly close and went about their business quite happily. I would recommend this trip as it's a relaxed way to spend some time in the countryside, learning about a once-native animal and having an encounter with them in their natural habitat.

I was staying in the area in mid-September and looking for something different to do -a beaver safari definitely fitted the bill! Daniele was brilliant in accommodating me on the evening's viewing. She is clearly very passionate about the environment and the reintroduction of the beavers in particular. It was lovely just to sit on the bank for a couple of hours with the sights and sounds of the river such as kingfishers darting past. Wildlife encounters can of course never be guaranteed, but we saw four beavers during the evening which was a real thrill. Recommended.

Sitting quietly on the riverbank as the light slowly faded, watching a family of beavers come into view right in front of us, was truly magical

We did a beaver safari with Danièle in mid-September, and it was such a wonderful experience! We saw a beaver within 2 minutes of sitting down on the riverbank, and saw plenty of activity the whole evening. It was amazing to see (nearly) a whole beaver family in their natural environment (including some very cute baby kits), and I really appreciated how respectful of the animals' space and wellbeing the tour was. Danièle was excellent and able to provide us so much background on the beaver family and answered all our questions about the animals and area. We never would have found this spot or had such a great experience without her knowledge!

I went on a beaver safari with Danielle at the beginning of September 2020. As it was just the two of us it was easy to maintain social distancing but she had considered everything and I felt very safe. It was one of the most incredible wildlife experiences I have ever had. A family of beavers were on shown for most of the morning, it was incredible to see them in their natural environment and displaying a range of behaviours. Danielle is extremely knowledgable about beavers and the local wildlife and I can highly recommend her trips to anyone who wants to see beavers.
