Full description
Take an amazing safari tour along the Algarvian Mountains by comfortable Land Rover with an English-speaking driver. The safari is an off road tour in a safe and comfortable Land Rover Defender, where you will learn about the ancestry, history and traditions of the region. 

Cross large fruit plantations, valleys with little villages, and streams. Learn about cork oaks, swim in crystal clear water rivers or just relax near beautiful lagoons and springs.  Taste the local "firewater" (49%) and other liquors along with some natural fruit jams and enjoy the great views from the highest peak of the region.

After the drive, head to the coast for a unique boat tour, which will take you to the ocean secrets of the coastline. Pass by caves, algares and grottoes and discover the Benagil Cathedral, Marinha, Carvalho and many others gems without a name.

Make a stop and go for a swim before speeding up and going out to the open sea to search for dolphins. As wild animals in their natural habitat they may not show up, but considerable effort will be made to see them before returning to the starting point, where your driver will be waiting for you to bring you back to your hotel.

Highly recommended combination with excellent travel guides

The car and guide were at the campsite right on time. The tour guide was the friendliness in person, was enthusiastic about his homeland and was able to transfer this enthusiasm to us, we experienced unique hours. The same applies to the boat trip: prudent travel companion with the necessary skills. What was still missing for a great experience was taken over by nature. An unforgettable day, highly recommended.

Simply SUPER

Great team, great communication. Great excursions and very important: you feel in good hands at all times !!! The boat tour was postponed due to bad weather. We liked that. We have already seen this with other providers that a tour was not canceled due to bad weather. But everything was great at ZEBRA and we could certainly enjoy the excursions !!!
