Opened in 1971 Knowsley Safari Park is one of the largest safari parks in the UK. The park has five mile safari drive with a lion pride, white rhino and a variety of antelope species to name a few.
The Walkaround section at Knowsley Safari Park is a dynamic section with a wide variety of species. We manage our herd of 6 African elephants in a protected contact system. We also manage giraffe, meerkats and red river hogs. As well as a large mixed exhibit ‘The equatorial Trail’. On top of this we run the reptile house and the walk through bat forest.
