This is a first for our Friends - exploring the pioneering Knepp Wildland either on a walking or in a vehicle safari. Knepp is a 3,500 acre estate known for 'rewilding' previously farmed land. Using grazing animals as the drivers of habitat creation and with the restoration of dynamic, natural water courses, the project has seen extraordinary increases in wildlife. Extremely rare species like turtle doves, nightingales, peregrine falcons, storks and purple emperor butterflies are now breeding and populations of more common species are rocketing. Guided by expert ecologists and carefully tailored to suit the season and weather conditions, your 'safari' will take you to current ‘hot spots’ of wildlife interest. Bring a picnic for lunch, sturdy waterproof boots and binoculars. Refreshments provided during the safaris which last for 3 hours. Vehicle safari can be bumpy and walking group safaris will go off the main tracks. A visit not to be missed if at all possible!
