Where rhino stomp and lions roar, the safari by the city, and so much more. Experience the Liverpool’s wildest day out with a trip to family-favourite, Knowsley Safari. 

Start your adventure by exploring our impressive 5-mile safari drive which is currently home to over 750 fascinating animals, from baboons to camels, wildebeest to rhinos, all from the comfort of your own car. 

The drive through lion enclosure is a real highlight of the safari drive while for many visitors the baboons are the stars of the show. Whether up close on the Baboon Bus or taking the car friendly route, you’ll get a great view of the monkey madness. 

An all day destination, the fun doesn’t end with the Safari Drive at Knowsley Safari. Head to the Foot Safari where you can explore the Amur Tiger Trail, visit our gentle giraffes or watch our educational animal displays. As well as all the amazing animals we also have amusement rides, fabulous face painting, delicious food outlets and play areas to keep the little ones entertained all day long!
