Kielder Bat Safari

Eavesdrop on creatures of the night

Explore the secret lives of Kielder Waterside’s nocturnal neighbours, on a guided Bat Safari with Wild Intrigue! Setting off at sunset, you will use special bat detectors to eavesdrop on these incredible mammals as they emerge to hunt for ‘breakfast’.

You will hear fascinating insights into the hidden lives of bats in the forest, watch their acrobatic hunting displays and spy on their summertime socialising. Join us to discover how wonderfully wild Kielder Forest is at night!
