Zebra Safari
Zebra Safari
“We drive in a caravan into the inland where we’ll visit monuments, taste the “medronho” in the Moorish “alembic”, we’ll meet the women who make traditional handicraft and we’ll stop and explain everything there is to know about cork. In the right time of the year, we can see the beekeepers at work. We’ll taste the biter almond liquor. Far away from the busy coast, it is sometimes possible to see a wild boar or a fox. When weather permits we will take a swim in one of the clear rivers or lakes and we always have time to stop and admire the amazing beauty of the landscape.”

“Our drivers, who speak English, French, German, Dutch and of course Portuguese, take pleasure in explaining extensively the costumes and habits of the friendly population. Lunch is a pleasant long abundance of typical regional food and drinks and everyone may eat as much as they want. The menu consists of soup, bread, olives, delicious roasted chicken “piri-piri” with chips and salad, followed by fruit. All of this of course accompanied by wines, red, white and non-alcoholic drinks. The start of the excursion will be around nine and at 17.30hrs the clients will be back in their hotels. And we are certain they will remember this day as one of the best of their holidays.”
