With 550 acres of naturalistic parkland,prairie and savannah, Knowsley safari park is the perfect sanctuary for wildlife. The park houses more than 30 mammal species from around the world, including lions, tigers, rhino, zebra, giraffes and a fantastic herd of African elephants. The park has maintained its original concept of visitors being able to view the animals while driving through the park in vehicles since it first opened to the public in 1971 after serving as an RAF airfield during World War II.
Today, Knowsley is one of only five drive-through game reserves in the UK based on the East African drive-through model. After an exciting day out viewing the animals in your vehicle, retire in style with a well-deserved snack at one of the scenic picnic areas in the park. Quite memorable experience!
