Isabella Tree

Married to Charlie, Isabella is an award-winning author and travel writer, writing under her maiden name, Isabella Tree. Her first book "The Bird Man", a biography of the Victorian ornithologist John Gould, was published in 1991.

Together she and Charlie have visited numerous conservation projects over the world.

Her latest book "Wilding – the return of nature to an English farm " (pub Picador, May 2018) describes the story of the rewilding project at Knepp.

"Much of the inspiration behind the design of the Safari Campsite has come from places we’ve visited on our travels – places that really get you in touch with nature, without leaving comfort behind. It’s been great fun scavenging and recycling things and, with Paul’s magic, giving them another life, with a story to tell."
