Full description
Benefit from pick-up at your accommodation and drive into the mountains of the Algarve to discover the lovely landscapes and typical villages of a region settled by the Moors in the 8th century. Stop at the ancient fortifications of the Castle of Paderne and marvel at the fruit plantations and deep valleys as you pass through small villages frozen in time. See orange, lemon, fig, almond, watermelon, nut, apple and peach trees growing in the wild. Arrive in Alte and get some free time to explore the narrow streets and handicraft shops of the village on your own. Go for a swim in the crystal clear waters of a natural spring, and then continue higher into the mountains to discover where the best cork trees grow. Enjoy lunch with local wines at a rural restaurant, and admire the windmills where the essential wheat flour was produced. Get panoramic views from the Rocha da Pena viewpoint, and learn more about how the locals live as you sample some of their traditional fire water and local honey, depending on the season.

The jeep safari was great, the weather was beautiful (not too hot). We have visited a lot , and learned from the beautiful nature of the Algarve . We also got to taste various local specialties. Lunch was also good and everything was included, including drinks and dessert. But last but not least , our driver Jhon was great , he was very knowledgeable and funny . I would recommend this to everyone.

We had a fantastic day, with Joshua as our guide. The day was very informative, we learnt a lot about portugal and portugese life. Going up into the hills, seeing remnants from roman times, windmills, traditional Portuguese villages, we tasted fresh oranges straight from the tree and fire water and got to have a swim before heading back at the end of the day. Would highly recommend Zebra Safari tours.
