We offer a range of educational activities for schools including workshops, guided tours, enhanced discovery days and school outreach that help to bring learning to life for pupils.

We're open for school trips all year round. A visit itinerary will be made for your school group and can include a discovery workshop, guided safari drive, guided foot safari tour and a talk. We also offer Enhanced Discovery Days which include all activities and your school is accompanied by a member of our Learning & Discovery team. 

Discovery Workshops

A  discovery workshop is an important part of your visit to us. All of our discovery workshops are led by professional educators and use live animal and bio artifacts to really bring learning to life in a way that wouldn’t be possible in the classroom.

Guided Tours

Get the most out of your Safari Drive with your very own guide. Find out amazing facts, information and stories about our animals as you travel around our 5-mile reserve. Our tours are fun, interactive and suitable for all age groups. (Microphone on bus/coach is required).

Enhanced Discovery Days

Enhanced Discovery Days give your students a whole day of learning at Knowsley Safari. You will be looked after by one of our enthusiastic guides from start to finish. Children will enjoy everything the park has to offer and take part in some special activities which will enhance their interaction with our animals.
