Madeira receives roughly a million visitors each year, and it's your turn to see why. This jeep safari takes you away from the crowds and steers you into some of the island's untouched areas. These areas are ripe for exploration with a jeep. And since your jeep has off-road capabilities, expect to make the most of the road less traveled.
Throughout this Madeira jeep safari, head towards Quinta Grande with passage through Câmara de Lobos to observe the bay. As you pass by Quinta Grande, you'll make a brief stop at the viewpoint of Fajã dos Padres, for photos and be provided with some commentary from your guide about this beautiful location.
You'll then travel through roads of the forest of the eucalyptus, towards the Jardim da Serra, where it is possible to observe the fauna and flora. During your journey, you'll make a stop brief stop so you can receive information about the introduction of the Eucalyptus tree in Madeira Island.
Once you get to the Jardim da Serra, you'll make a quick pit stop for some coffee (at your own expense) and a bathroom break. Then you will go to the Miradouro of Boca dos Namorados--at 1000 meters of altitude, you can see the Curral das Freiras and listen to the guide's explain the history of this famous location.After the viewpoint of Boca dos Namorado, you'll descend towards Funchal, as you head back to the harbor. Keep an eye out, as you will pass through the Estreito of Câmara de Lobos where you'll be treated to a lovely view of the local vineyards.

We had a great time with our driver guide as we climbed to the high country, stopped at beautiful view points and cruised off-road for miles through mountain forests and trails.

What a wonderful excursion. Our guide was a delightful young man and he gave us a tour of the island that was memorable. He called our Safari Adventure in the 4 wheel drive a ‘massage’. Ha ha! Bumpy all right! A great day with beautiful sights.

This was one of the best excursions we have ever taken. We went four wheeling through the beautiful mountains of Madeira. What a gorgeous island. We also stopped to sample the island drink, Poncha. Poncha is made from a little honey, either orange juice, tangerine juice or passion fruit juice and 50 proof sugar cane rum. Good but very, very potent.
This exceeded our expectations! Great little jeep that took us along the coast and then up into the mountains. We even did some off roading to get into some spectacular views!

Traveling the back roads and trails in the 4X4 vehicle was both exciting and informative. We had a few great stops for sight-seeing and enjoyed the whole experience.
