Hong Kong Snake Safaris were set up in 2017 by long term resident, nature enthusiast and snake catcher for the Hong Kong Police,  William Sargent.

What do we do? 
We take small groups on night safari hikes in country parks to search out and observe wildlife in their natural habitat. A fun, educational and totally
unique wildlife experience. Often overlooked, Hong Kong is home to an amazing diversity of wildlife, including 43 species of snakes and 24 species of amphibians.  
Who should join?
Tours are suitable for anyone with a sense of adventure and an interest in local wildlife (many of our participants come to overcome their fears). Participants must be able to hike (slowly) 4-5km on country park trails (including steep inclines) with optional stream trekking sections. Minimum age 8.
