safaris

Our expert safari guides take you into the heart of the Knepp Wildland Project, 3,500 acres of stunning natural habitat, heaving with wildlife.

Safaris are either vehicle-based in an open-sided Austrian Pinzgauer or guided on foot. On a walking safari you’ll need a level of fitness that enables you to walk at a gentle pace on uneven ground for 2-3 hours. On vehicle safaris there will be plenty of opportunities to stop at sites of interest and walk around. On receiving your booking we’ll send you further details of where to meet and what to bring.

Our 12+ Policy

Knepp Wildland Safaris are all about the quiet and patient observation of nature and are therefore unsuitable for children under 12.

When to come

April and May are best for the dawn chorus.

Late April–early May sees the arrival of cuckoos, nightingales, and turtle doves.

Early summer onwards is best for seeing beetles, reptiles and birds in general.

Mid-summer for Bat & Moth, Dusk, and Purple Emperor Safaris, and for seeing butterflies and other pollinating insects in large numbers.

Mid-end October is the deer rut.

Unfortunately, we cannot provide refunds or date changes for poor weather. Safaris will continue through all conditions unless Met Office warnings stipulate it is unsafe to do so.

Free Guided Tours

Every year we put on around 20 free guided tours for schools and interest groups.

Because we are generally oversubscribed, we will be scoring applications and cannot guarantee we will be able to accommodate you this year.

To apply for your free visit please contact safaris@knepp.co.uk.

Our 12+ Policy

Knepp Wildland Safaris and campsite are all about the quiet and patient observation of nature.

Some of the species we are likely to encounter are shy or can be frightened by loud noises or sudden movements. Our campsite with open-air fire-pits, wood-burning stoves and an on-site pond is unsuitable for small children.

For this reason, our safaris, holiday cottages and campsite are suitable only for children of 12 and over.
