White Stork Safari

Select date


We’re delighted to be the first place in Britain for over 600 years to have breeding white storks! Following a successful reintroduction programme, begun in 2016 with our partners Cotswold Wildlife Park and the Roy Dennis Wildlife Foundation, we have established a colony of white storks at Knepp.

You can now see them bill-clattering on their nests on the tops of Knepp’s oak trees every spring and feeding their chicks throughout the summer. This is one of the most exciting reintroduction projects in the UK in recent years.

After a short presentation over a cup of tea, our wonderful Stork Project Officer, Laura Vaughan-Hirsh, will take you out into the rewilding project to see the birds in action.

Learn about the life and loves of these extraordinary charismatic birds, their relationship with humans, why we think they disappeared from the UK, and their annual migration to southern Europe and Africa from the person leading the reintroduction programme.

This safari runs from 14 May to 25 June.

Our White Stork Safari is at a moderate walking pace with frequent stops. You’ll need a good level of fitness and be able to cope with walking on uneven ground.

£75 per person

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.
