A stunning wildlife reserve in west Norfolk offering buggy tours and accommodation
If you’re looking for a unique experience to entertain the whole family from nought to ninety, look no further than a self-drive safari tour at multi-award winning Watatunga Wildlife Reserve. With the U.K.’s largest collection of endangered deer and antelope, this 170-acre gem is one of Norfolk’s best kept secrets. The reserve offers three guided safari tours a day between April and October – hop into your own electric buggy and get up close and personal with the wonderful wildlife that live at Watatunga.
Recognised as the country’s Best Small Visitor Attraction in 2023, there is lots to do at Watatunga including photography experiences, fine-dining or self-catered events in the lakeside BBQ hut. Corporate breaks for client meetings, colleague away days and team building experiences.
Access to the reserve is via guided tour only – trailer tours run weekly on Sundays – and must be pre-booked online via the Watatunga website.
The reserve also offers luxurious self-catering accommodation with stunning views of the animals and the option to organise private tours for small groups in our electric buggies or large groups in our safari trailer.
Prices vary according to season and it is best to check directly on the Watatunga website for the most accurate updates.
As a guide, at the time of writing a 90-minute trailer tour costs £15.00 per person, an OFF-PEAK 4-seater buggy costs £66.00 per buggy and a PEAK 4-seater buggy costs £76.00 per buggy.
We also operate a wheelchair accessible trailer on every tour and a 6-seater buggy. Private and group tours are also available.
Watatunga’s tour season runs from April-October inclusive. Private tours, corporate experiences and photography tours can be booked at any time. Our accommodation is also open all year round.
