Your Safari Driver


Barle Valley Safaris is owned by Daphne Brace and her son Richard Norman.

Daphne has been your tour guide since the year 2000. She comes from generations of Exmoor heritage many of whom are farming stock and is still very much involved in working on her parents’ farm when needed. Most of her family past and present can be found all over Exmoor.

Richard is also involved in farming on Exmoor with experience from a young age of breeding he own flock of sheep of varying different breeds including the native Exmoor horn. He can also be found contracting on other Exmoor farms. He is also a Lance Corporal in the Territorial Army and has completed two tours of Afghanistan.

The Safari Land Rover Defender 110 has now carried more than 2000 visitors a year to experience the sights and the less well known features of the Exmoor National Park.

Daphne and Richard look forward to welcoming all customers past and present and hope you enjoy your time with us on Safari.
