Safari on the Veluwe

While South-Africa has the elephant, rhino, lion, leopard and the buffalo, in the Netherlands we have our own ‘Big Five’: the red deer, the roe, the wild pig, the mouflon and the fallow deer.
During this hike you will learn all about the beautiful nature reserve, the Veluwe, and its inhabitants. The Veluwe is a forest-rich ridge of hills (1100 km2) in the province of Gelderland and features a variety of landscapes, including woodland, heath, some small lakes and Europe’s largest sand drifts.

About Emmy

Throughout my childhood, I spent countless hours with my father roaming through the woods, learning about the surroundings, the nature and the wildlife. Later on, I became a nature guide, and took several courses on Wildlife and Nature, specializing in deer, roe, wild boar and fallow deer. I have the greatest pleasure in sharing this information and knowledge with the groups I take on this journey. Whether corporate groups or families, I have seen how communication with nature can connect with interpersonal and work relationships. Standing eye to eye with wildlife is magical!

The more time you spend outdoors, the richer a person you will become
