What trip to Alanya would be complete without going out for the day in a 4×4 vehicle to explore the rural areas that are near to Alanya? This is the ideal way to combine adventure, sightseeing and fun for all the family and a great way to get up close and personal with the Taurus Mountains.
The Taurus Mountains that provide a fascinating backdrop to Alanya’s coastline are home to villages that seem a world away from the modern bustling resorts. You will be amazed at the way of life up in the mountains and you are sure to feel quite humbled at the hospitality that villagers are sure to show you as you enter their villages and homes.
This is a really great way to see how people in rural Turkey live and experience it for yourself. With a visit to a traditional Turkish home and a Mosque this is a sure fire way to appreciate the culture of this culture rich Country.
In 2022, price of Alanya Jeep Safari is 20 € for adults, 10 € for children between age 7 and 12, free for children under 6 years old.
Everyday, all year round from 09:00 to 16:00.
Your 4 x 4 Landscape Safari jeep will pick you up from your hotel at around 09:00 when you will be taken to join the convoy of jeeps travelling that day. You will be introduced to your guide and chauffeur for the day, who will be travelling with you along your route. They will give you information with regard to the many stops throughout the day. The first stage of your safari will take you to the small waterfall over the Obacay River where you can have a small break and a photo opportunity of this lovely area.
Then you will be driven through the pine forests at the foothills of the Taurus Mountains, over 1500 metres high, your gradual ascent will offer you beautiful views of Alanya city, as you leave behind the touristic city to favour the majestic Taurus Mountains. This will be a dusty, off road experience for the most part, filled with adrenalin and laughter. You will travel through the orange, lemon and banana plantations of the area, a treat for the senses both visual and aromatic. You will pass through the Nomad villages of Alanya with the option to visit a local Mosque, a traditional Turkish home and to meet the local people with their traditional Turkish dress.
After visiting the villages you will head off to the Dim Dam. The Dam was built to supply water and electricity to the area and it is here where you will take an optional swim break and enjoy a freshly cooked lunch while sitting on the seats over the Dim River. Your lunch will usually consist of a choice between freshly caught barbecued fish or chicken, with a vegetarian option also. Lunch is usually served with rice or pasta, salad and of course, the wonderfully fresh Turkish bread.
Lunch is a leisurely affair, offering you the chance to cool off with a refreshing swim, or simply enjoy the ambience of the surrounding landscape and clean fresh air. You have the opportunity to cool your heels in the water as you eat, a different and refreshing experience. Then with this done you have the optional extra of visiting the Dim Caves before you descend back down to Alanya and your original pick up point.
