What’s provided: Tea, coffee, elderflower cordial and organic chocolate brownies. Please let us know of any allergies and if you’re vegetarian/vegan in advance and we’ll do our best to cater for you.

What to bring: Wellies are essential for the afternoon as we may be wading through shallow water. Also bring a packed lunch, plenty to drink, and suitable clothing for the conditions. You will also need binoculars, notebook and pen.

Pocket money: The Knepp Estate sell high-quality meat that comes from the management of the free-roaming herds within the Knepp Estate (maybe bring a cool box too).

What to wear: We will be out in the wildland so please be prepared for the British weather! The beaver pen is prone to flooding so wellingtons are essential! If it’s raining please bring waterproof jacket and trousers, and hat etc.

Getting here: Please share vehicles as much as possible, as parking is limited both in the morning and the afternoon. Follow signs to Knepp Wildland Safaris. When you arrive, park in the Yoga Car Park, which is on the right, just after the automatic gate at the very end of the track. (The What3words for the Yoga Car Park is wasp.student.incisions)

Location (afternoon visit to Beaver Pen): Brookhouse Farm, Shipley, RH13 8PY (the postcode is for this area of Shipley). We will drive round together in our own cars, but the entrance to the track is in on the left and has a sign. (Parking area What3words is health.homework.thunder).

Please think carefully about what you bring with you and keep your valuables with you at all times.

We are in a remote and relatively crime-free area but we can’t take responsibility for valuables on site, including vehicles and their contents in the Car Park.

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.
