David Plummer


Filmmaker, tutor, mentor and inspirational speaker – David Plummer is all of these things and more. But above all he is a man fuelled by an all-consuming passion for wildlife.

David is a wildlife photographer: that means he only takes pictures of wild animals in their natural habitat. His extensive knowledge of the animals and birds and their environment is the first essential ingredient behind his breath-taking images. The second vital element is research: David studies relentlessly to get under the skin of a new subject before heading into the field. The third is endless patience: David regularly waits for hours in a floating hide covered in leeches to get the perfect shot.

David’s images can be viewed on all major professional stock agencies and are featured in leading wildlife publications. David’s wildlife knowledge and skills are so highly respected they are regularly sought by the world’s leading wildlife film and documentary makers. David loves to share his skill with others. Covering everything from beginners to advanced techniques, from framing to post-production, David helps his students create images that connect with the viewer.

“Working on the Knepp Rewilding project is a dream post for me; the volume of wildlife for a UK location is outstanding especially in such a wild setting. From kingfishers to owls to the herds of deer, a safari here is as exciting as any I do in Africa!”

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.
