Experience the Liverpool’s wildest day out with a trip to family-favourite, Knowsley Safari.
Kick off your day with a tour of the 550 acre Safari Drive and get acquainted with over 700 wild animals, from baboons to camels, wildebeest to tigers, 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 by taking the car friendly route, you’ll get a great view of the monkey madness; the boisterous baboons that have become Knowsley’s trademark.
An all-day destination, and the fun doesn’t end with the Safari Drive at Knowsley. On the Walkaround Area, take a walk on the dark side through the Bat Forest – a 5* home from home for 100 Egyptian fruit bats, or marvel at the birds of prey. The ‘beak to face’ Birds of Prey Experience includes vulture feeding, flying displays, bird handling and even the chance to see a baby bird hatch. Anything could happen as they swoop and dive just inches above your head!
Get up close and personal at the Giraffe Tower and the Elephant Platform, watch the sea lions splash about in the sea lion show, get acquainted with the family of meerkats, or bravely venture into the Bug House.
As well as the exotic animals who make Knowsley their home, at the park you can also see an array of native British wildlife. Ten species of waterfowl nest around the park’s Mizzy Lake; kestrels and buzzards can be spotted in the woodland and with patience brown hares, stoats, weasels and squirrels can also be spotted.
As well as all the amazing animals we also have amusement rides and play areas to keep the little ones entertained all day long!
Introducing... Amur Tiger Trail
Now introducing the brand new Amur Tiger Trail at Knowsley Safari! Step into this forested area of the foot safari and be transported to Eastern Russia. This is no ordinary walk in the woods, in fact, it’s like nothing you’ve ever seen before! All included in the price of admission and memberships, the tiger trail is just waiting to be explored, so get your researcher hats on and come on in!
There is a long history of keeping animals on the Knowsley estate. In the 19th century Edward, the 13th Earl of Derby, kept one of the largest private menageries in the world with 90 species of mammals and 300 species of birds! As part of Knowsley’s commitment to conservation, today’s keepers are always on hand talks about the work undertaken to protect the many species at the Park, and the daily care that they give the animals. If you’ve got any questions; just ask.
