Here’s 5 reasons why Knowsley Safari is a fab day out, whatever the weather….

1 – The Safari Drive

The changeable British weather doesn’t deter the Knowsley Safari animals. Home of the UK’s longest safari drive, you can spot lions, zebras, wildebeest, camels, bison, very cheeky monkeys and more basking in the sun or enjoying the cool rain showers. Not got a car? Check out the Baboon Bus here. 

2 – LEGO Brick Safari

Open now and running until 2nd September, Knowsley Safari has welcomed more than 80 brand new animals, all made out of LEGO! Let your little explorers find their feet and see how many you can spot on the foot safari. Head this way to watch our Gemma and the girls go in search of a very special elephant. 

3 – Sea Lion Shows

Biffo, Arthur, Roger and Louis are the real life superstars at Knowsley Safari. Showing off their incredible intelligence and tricks as part of a daily, indoor display, these boys certainly know how to put on a show. You can also see them swim and sunbathe in their outdoor pool.
