Jeep safari in Istanbul is an alternative day out as part of your city break. It is not to be confused with those of the southern resorts and is a real treat and relaxing break from the traffic and noise of the city centre. It will take place in Belgrad Forest near to Istanbul, so named after the Serbs that relocated here after the Ottoman siege of Belgrade.
You will experience the stark contrast of colours in the forest as you drive along in your all terrain vehicle, a truly alternative activity just a stone’s throw away from the commotion of city life. Your guide will also be your driver, who will take you on an off road experience through the foliage of the forest. You will have a high adrenalin experience as you veer the rugged nature of this National Park.
In 2023, price of Jeep Safari in Istanbul is 35 € per person.
Everyday, all year round, anytime between 09:00 to 18:00.
As no transfers are provided in this package you should arrive at the centre in Belgrad Forest in plenty of time not to miss the tour. Should you require further assistance on how to best arrive at the centre the reservations team will be happy to help, all you have to do is send a message!
Once you have met your driver who will also double as your guide for the day you will be ready to board the 4×4 vehicle and set off on your adventure. You will embark upon a 90 minute journey through the rugged landscape, through the deciduous forest that is broken up only by rivers and streams which of course your all terrain vehicle can do with ease.
You may also spot a lake or river where the water looks so inviting that with a quick word in the ear of your driver can become the perfect spot for a swim break. Your journey is yours and your driver will be happy to stop for you to take photos, swim or further explore as you wish. You will see many stunning views and will come across some quaint Turkish villages.
Once your tour has finished you will be responsible for your return journey to your hotel and again the team will be happy to advise you on how to do so.
