Supper and Safari

Every Thursday through June, meet some of Brownsea's more elusive wildlife. The National Trust have teamed up with the Dorset Wildlife Trust to guide you on an exciting nocturnal adventure.

  • Booking essential

Enjoy an evening boat ride over to Brownsea after all of the day visitors have gone home. Upon arrival you'll head to the cafe overlooking the harbour for a delicious dinner.

Afterwards your guide will meet you and take you on an adventure to meet some of Brownsea's intriguing wildlife as they emerge for the evening.

At this time of year the lagoon is alive with an orchestra of bird sonance and the nightjars have flown in and are skimming over the heath.
