Brownies, Cubs, Scouts and Guides
If you're looking for somewhere to take your Brownies, Cubs, Scouts and Guides group then there is nowhere better for adventure than Knowsley Safari. We've created amazing days for visiting uniform groups to experience all the safari has to offer; from seeing rhino, lions and baboons on a 5-mile Safari Drive to discovering meerkats, giraffe and tigers on our Foot Safari! There is so much to see and do but don't worry, our team has created the perfect day for visiting groups so you don't miss things like our bird of prey display or sea lion display.

Staying at Woodbank Activity Centre
If you are staying at Woodbank activity centre and plan to come and visit the safari, if you book a baboon bus we can pick you up from Woodbank and drop you back off at the end of the day, there is no extra cost for this.
*We understand you need a certain amount of leaders for your adult: child ratios, we work to NSPCC ratios, any other helpers that are not needed as part of the ratios will be charged at £8 each.
**To book our baboon buses we work to a minimum charge, if the number of children you are bringing doesn’t cover this minimum charge then we will ask for the extra to be paid/leaders to contribute to the cost of the bus.
To make your booking process as smooth as possible we have included below some of the frequently asked questions...
