See one of the UK's most dramatic wildlife experiences
Get close to fallow bucks and red deer stags
Marvel as the beasts enter the rut
Enjoy a glass of sloe gin or hot chocolate, plus venison sausages
A deer rut safari in rural Sussex provides the perfect opportunity to experience one of the most dramatic events of the natural world - the mating rituals of the fallow bucks. As autumn sets in, the ultimate battle of supremacy starts, when these wild creatures go head to head in the battle for mating rights. In a small safari group led by an expert, experience unrivalled views of the 'lekking grounds' or mating arena, where mature males battle it out in an impressive show of machismo and see the beautiful beasts at close range, with their massive antlers (some of the biggest in the world). To finish, enjoy a glass of sloe gin or mug of hot chocolate, plus hot venison sausages surrounded by the beauty of Knepp Park.
