Getting out of the resort for the day has never been so easy. Away from the shops, bars and crowds, the Jeep Safari takes you up into the Bodrum mountains. This adrenalin ride leads you to a more traditional way of Turkish life, the villages and surrounding countryside, with the lush green pine forests leaving the sparkling Aegean sea behind. With a friendly local guide assisting you throughout the safari you will experience the fun of the dusty off road riding, right through to the muddy mountain tracks and rivers, stopping at small local villages where you can engross yourself with the quieter way of Turkish life that has endured for centuries.
The 4 x 4 jeeps are all well maintained and able to take you through the rougher off road terrain down to the Aegean coast and its golden beaches, where you can stop to swim and cool off from the dustier mountain tracks. Your jeep driver will be a qualified professional, skilled in negotiating the mountains and shoreline roads. Together with an English speaking guide, they will be there for you throughout the day, ensuring your safety, and available to tell you about the beautiful region in which you are travelling.

You travel next to the small village of Etrim, famed for its hand made rugs, and where you will have the chance to see them being made for yourself.
After Etrim you travel to Ciftlik Village where lunch will be served at an authentic Turkish restaurant. Here you will be able to sample Turkish cuisine, freshly made.
After lunch you will visit the Mazi cave and then down to the nearby bay for swimming and relaxing.
In between stops you can experience the breathtking tour through the mountains, with its fun, mountain scenery and adrenalin packed action. All too soon you will think your safari has finished as your jeep heads back to Bodrum and your original point of pick up at approximately 16:00.
The first adventure of the day is off-road driving with your water fights. You will travel along the dry dusty roads of a local village with a water gun in hand ready to soak your fellow guests. Following the water fight you will stop at a local village where you will have ample time to dry off and grab yourself a light refreshment before heading back to the jeep and the next stop of the day.
You will make a slow drive along the coast towards Kizumu beach, flanked to the left by luscious greenery and to the right by turquoise, clear waters. You will be given some free time at Kizkumu Beach where you can walk on water or take a swim. There are basic facilities available to you at the beach if you just wish to take a drink in the shade.
As you leave the beach and head once more into the mountains you will be treated to some magnificent panoramas over the coastline. Your next stop will be Turgut Village and Waterfall. You will first be served lunch which consists of chicken, fish or meatballs accompanied with Turkish rice and salad. After you are satisfied will have time here to explore and if you are brave enough have a swim in the icy cold mountain waters.
You will then begin your leisurely drive back towards Marmaris and to your accommodation where you will be dropped off feeling tired and in need of a shower. This is one of the best days out ever and suitable for all the family!
