  • I did the tour on the coach. Spent 90% of it in the woods looking at wild boar, the bison were shin only for 5 minutes.

It does not seem difficult!
  • Great place to see Buffalos, wild horses and boars in a nearly natural environment. Beautiful landscapes and the employees are really committed! You can take walking tours or on a horse carriage.
