Enhanced Discovery Days

Enhanced Discovery Days

The visit was one of the best educational trips I've taken my class on. It met all my needs and covered 3 of 4 national curriculum objectives, which is great. The staff were extremely knowledgeable and worked extremely well with the children; such a credit to the park. Overall it was a fantastic day! I will definitely book for next year when covering this unit again

Our 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.
