Much threatened by its American cousin the grey, Kielder is one of its last strongholds in England. Kielder is home to around 50% of England’s red squirrel population. You will explore its forest home looking for the clues it leaves behind and also hopefully spotting the elusive creature itself.

Once you have finished your safari pop into Kielder Castle café and enjoy a yummy lunch or tempting treat.
