Things to do at Knowsley Safari Park review

Their 550 acre/5 mile drive is home to many animals from around the world. The drive is broken up into different zones where you will see the animals in as close to natural conditions as they can achieve. The lion enclosure is particularly impressive and there is a car-friendly and non-car friendly drive through to see their baboons.

You can also explore part of the zoo on foot. Their foot safari offers everything from sea lion displays, play areas, meerkats, giraffes and a new tiger trail. They also have amusement rides, a train and a boating lake (additional cost for the rides) plus a woodland walk through the Wild Trail.
