Nature and Wildlife trips on the River Stour with expert RSPB Wardens

 

We've teamed up with the legends at the RSPB  to offer  a limited number of  scheduled   Canoe Safaris  designed to talk you through every sight and sound  experienced, in real time , as you paddle through Cattawade Marshes Nature Reserve and up to Flatford Mill.

 

These 2.5 - 3  hour safaris provide a truly unique opportunity for everyone to experience .

A selection of learning aids will be available on the day.

 

 

Canoe Safaris are operated directly by Outdoor Hire Centres Ltd who have invited RSPB to provide natural world knowledge only during these trips.
