Think you need to go to Africa to enjoy a safari? Think again – and head instead to Brancaster Staithe.
The National Trust has organised a two-hour exploration of the coast at low tides this summer.
it is led by learning officer Emily Chittenden, who takes families through the harbour and back to explore the salt marshes and creeks.
Katherine Tofield, deputy manager of the National Trust’s Brancaster Centre, said: “The day went really well, and it was fun for all of the families who joined us on the day. The children all came back covered in mud from exploring the creeks, and learnt about the wildlife and plants in the area. They sounded like they really enjoyed it.”
On the day, 11 people took part and offered those who attended a chance to learn about the development of the salt marshes, the plantation and wildlife species and how they have adapted to survive the marsh conditions. MLNF13PT08063
