Newest Review: ... offering 20.12% off admission charges and so it cost £25.50 for us all to get in with our free child vouchers which is a much more acceptable price in my opinion. We were given a few vouchers for money off meals in the park and a map and stickers for the children to do as they were driven around the park which was a hit with my son and his friend but it would have been nice to have been ... more

The plan had been to take my son and his friend to the South Lakes Wild animal park for his birthday treat but as he had been poorly right up to his birthday I didn't think it was going to be a good idea to travel for around three hours in total to get up to the South Lakes and back. We decided that we would have a trip to Knowsley safari park instead which was around an hour and a half round trip and would obviously mean less walking around for my son. This is my review of the park. ==Getting there== We did have use of sat nav to help us in getting to the safari park but the drive was simple with it and as we got closer to the park it was well ...

Knowsley Safari Park During the summer holidays we decided to book a hotel close to the safari park and spend a couple of days having a look at some of the attractions in the area. We have taken Little Miss to zoos but thought that this would be more interesting and a chance to see animals out of cages. With the sat nav set, the safari park was easy to find and not far from the motorway. To pay, simply drive the car to one of the boots, pay the entrance fee and receive a rather nice glossy booklet about the park. Once paid, we parked the car in the large and free car park which also features toilets so that the there is no issue on the ... Read the complete review

My girlfriend and I decided to have a random day out, and chose Knowsley Safari Park. The main attraction of these safari parks, is that you can see all the animals from the comfort of your car! Costing £11 pet adult it seems fairly expensive, but you soon realise this is not the case, its worth every penny. When arriving at the park, you drive up the toll booth, there is a five mile trail through the park, now I'm not the most organized of people, and looking at my trip computer, saw the car was showing only seven miles left before running out of fuel!! We had to fill with diesel before we could enter the park, I'm sure most of you will have the ... Read the complete review

Living just five minutes from Knowsley Safari Park it is somewhere we tend to visit at least once a year, usually when there is a two for one offer in the local paper so I thought it would be a good place to do a review on and share our experiences with anyone that's thinking of visiting. PARK INFORMATION AND FACTS The 550 acre park is situated Earl of Derby's estate which has a long history of housing animals and in the 19th Century the Earl of Derby kept one of the largest private menageries in the world keeping over 90 species of mammal and 300 species of birds. Nowadays the park has a 5 mile long safari drive and is the only one of its king in the ... Read the complete review

Knowsley Safari is a brilliant day out for the kids on a lovely summers day. As soon as you arrive at the park you know you will have a great time. You couldn't believe from outside that grounds what lies beyond the walls. There are lots and lots of different WILD animals for you to see up close and sometimes too personal if you take a ride through the baboon section. Believe me, if your sunroof isn't that strong then its scary and you could very well be going home with a new addition. You can drive your car through the park and see animals such as lions and elephants, giraffes and buffalo. Its really surreal to think that you are so close to ... Read the complete review
