There are 16 miles of public and permissive footpaths within the Knepp Rewilding project, which cover an area of 3,500 acres, five tree viewing-platforms, and a bird-hide overlooking Knepp Lake.

We supply complimentary maps of suggested circular walking routes.

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.
