Corona Virus Update

KNEPP WILDLAND SAFARIS AND CAMPING
CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) STATEMENT

Last updated on March 4th 2021

Dear Campers, Glampers, Safari Guests and Visitors,

We are thrilled to be planning our 2021 camping and safari season following the government’s latest announcement! We can’t wait to host you at Knepp and provide you with some wonderful and restorative experiences in nature.

Please read the information below carefully as it contains important information about 2021 bookings.

Existing Bookings

Following government guidelines, we aim to open some of our safaris on Monday 12 April. Sadly, however, we have to cancel any safaris before this date and any that involve indoor sessions before the 17th May.

We are waiting on further clarification from the Government as to when we can open our campsite. We know it will not be until Monday 12 April at the earliest and therefore we sadly have to cancel any stays before this date.

These are clearly very uncertain times and we would like to reassure guests that they will not be financially at risk if government restrictions mean we cannot open.

Bookings from Friday 2 April to Monday 12 April

We will be in touch by email to discuss your options.

Safari Bookings from Monday 12 April to Monday 17 May

We will be in touch by email to confirm if your trip is able to go ahead or inform you about any changes we need to put into place.

Campsite Bookings from Monday 12 April to Monday 17 May

We will be in touch by email to discuss your options.

Bookings after Monday 17 May

We are hopeful that bookings after 17 May will proceed as normal. We will be monitoring government announcements closely and will update this page when we know more.

New Bookings

If you haven’t booked already, you can make your camping, glamping or safari booking on our website now.

These are clearly still uncertain times and we would like to reassure guests that they will not be financially at risk if the government has to recalibrate and we cannot open when expected.

Covid-19 Cancellations

If there is any Covid-19-related reason that results in your booking being cancelled (either by you or us) you will be entitled to a full refund (minus a 5% administration fee to cover our bank charges).
