What will students see and do?

Enjoy a full day out and explore the five-mile safari drive, which is the longest in the UK and home to everything from cheeky baboons to a magnificent lion pride.

On the foot safari, brand-new Bear Country takes centre stage, before you get to explore the Tiger Trail and Nature Walk, then head to the rides and play areas before watching an animal display.

Whether you are a school teacher looking to bring your class for a fun, educational day out near Liverpool or wanting a visit to your school in person or over a live stream, or a home educator searching for that something a little bit different, Knowsley Safari has something for everyone.

There are a range of educational activities for schools, including workshops and guided tours, delivered by expert safari educators who help bring learning to life for pupils.
