What people are saying about Central Anatolia

I highly recommend this activity. We generally had a good day, which allowed us to discover a magnificent natural landscape. We were picked up very early at 7:55am from the hotel for a comfortable van ride of over an hour. Arrival on site, we were warmly welcomed by the safari team for a refreshment (note the drinks are at your expense, plan what to pay) and the sale of water shoes. We were then left in groups of 12 in the jeeps. (We were lucky enough to come across an 80% French group!) Get ready for a long jeep ride with an exceptional view of the mountains under the background of music, and surprise water fight breaks! It was also planned a tea and photo session in the morning, a short break at the edge of a water point to cool off, the lunch break (normal meal but of good quality), and in the afternoon a 45-minute swim in the a small river.

The trip from start to finish was absolutely amazing! The staff are so friendly and made the trip so fun. The views are incredible, and the lunch stop was amazing! We stopped off at a small water fall and got to go in for a swim. It’s was well worth the money and we would all absolutely do it again!
