Camargue: Safari from Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer
- Small group
- Duration: 2 hours
Depart from the Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer and head out on a 2-hour safari around the scenic Camargue, southern France. Headed by a designated driver and guide, your group will discover the blossoming flora and fauna unique to this bucolic region. See the famous white Camargue horses roaming freely in the fields from the heights of the convertible 4x4 motor. Snap shots of flamingos and different bird species flying around the edge of the ponds and bodies of water found in this serene area while listening to the story of the Camargue. Travel to a bull farm where you will encounter black bulls and learn about the bull farming life from your informative guide.
Our trip by safari was incredibly informative, though it was hard to see the flamingos specifically. The only issue with riding in the back of the 4 x 4 was that it was difficult to hear what the driver was saying in regard to the area due to the wind.
Go on a fun and insightful outing to discover Camargue's main highlights and landmarks, starting with a pick-up from your hotel in Marseille. Enjoy fantastic views of diverse landscapes, like rice fields and salt beds. See animals such as flamingos, herons, black bulls, and white horses. Learn about salt production and savor a bit of a wine tasting as you visit Manades.
Visit a small village named Salin-le-Giraud, a place so beautiful it inspired Van Gogh to paint "Les Chaumières Saintines." Have the option of trying some local specialties, like "les tellines", shellfish cooked with parsley and garlic.

We had a very pleasant and exotic time. Very friendly guide. We laughed like children in the 4 * 4. My 4 year old son had a blast! To have compared to other places, great value for money.
2h super quickly passed! Driver who knows the area well and its habits and customs, in addition to knowing the birds. In this time when everything is closed, it really felt good
We very much enjoyed our walk. The guide was super nice and perfectly informed about the region We highly recommend this walk
nice guide! nice tour and tasting of a good product: we recommend! an option on a longer and wilder circuit would be a plus.
A passionate guide who allowed us to learn things that we would never have known by going for a walk without a guide :)
