Corona Virus Update


Last updated on March 11th 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 will be opening our campsite and resuming our safaris with indoor sessions on Monday 17th May following government guidance.

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 have to delay opening further.

Safari Bookings before Monday 17 May

All bookings before Monday 12 April are sadly cancelled. We will be in touch by email to discuss your options.

If your booking is between Monday 12 April and Monday 17 May, we will be in touch by email to confirm if your trip is able to go ahead or to inform you about any changes we need to put into place.

Campsite Bookings before Monday 17 May

All campsite bookings before Monday 17 May are sadly cancelled. 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).
