Knowsley Safari Park

Knowsley Safari Park is Merseyside’s premier zoological attraction. You’ll encounter a wealth of exotic wildlife during a day out at the diverse park. A walk around area offers visitors the chance to view sea lions frolicking and elephants and giraffes at play. Elsewhere, you’ll find European moose on the Wild Trail along with a host of creatures great and small. When your feet have tired of walking, take the boat instead and glide out across Mizzy Lake. When you’re a safe distance from the shore, ship the oars and let the boat drift while you take in the beautiful surroundings. The safari park, which first opened in the ‘70s, has grown over the years to accommodate increasing visitor numbers and the demand for new species. Today, visitors can choose to drive around the park, observing the animals in a simulacrum of their natural habitat. For those who are worried that the baboons may take a liking to their shiny new car, incidentally, there is the option to skirt this section of the park. Knowsley Safari Park offers a range of special Animal Encounters for those craving a closer look at the creatures who roam its pastures. If the prospect of seeing a giraffe at close quarters or feeding breakfast to a lion excites you, this promises to be an unforgettable experience. Become a sea lion trainer for a day or book a VIP Guided Safari Tour that will give you the inside scoop on the park’s most famous residents and their idiosyncrasies. In addition to welcoming visitors, Knowsley Safari Park works tirelessly behind the scenes to support conservation efforts, both locally and internationally. You’ll have a chance to learn more about the park’s conservation work during your visit, in between negotiating the world’s largest urban high ropes adventure course, playing the amusements and watching the birds of prey stretch their wings and flex their talons.

Visited Knowsley on Monday with my other half. Such a good time to go, so quiet which allowed us lots of time to slow down and really look at the animals in the drive safari. We mostly saw every animal bar 1/2 but we think they were just hiding! Managed to get to the seal lion show too, it was so good & really informative. The foot safari was a bit busier with people, but nowhere near as busy as it probably would of been at the weekend. So glad we chose to visit last minute. Buying tickets and getting through the gate was easy and the lady was so lovely when booking us in. Such a good day out, even for big kids!

The animals are in immaculate condition. We went through the drive through safari a couple of times, and saw lots of animals. There is a choice of driving through the baboons, or going on a safe drive through. We went on the safe journey, but got lots of photos of cars with baboons all over them, hilarious! The staff are amazing, and really helpful. Our favourite was the bird show. We have never seen a show like it. It started off with a talk about the vultures and then more and more birds were included, really entertaining.

An amazing day out for all the family! The best way to get really close to some truly majestic animals. Once inside, you can drive round the safari drive as many times as you wish. There's also a walkaround section with more animals and some activities for kids. The knowledgeable staff are brimming with enthusiasm, all friendly, and always eager to offer help and advice about the animals.
