Brownies, Cubs, Scouts and Guides

Fantastic days for uniform groups!

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 education 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. There is more information below on your day at Knowsley Safari but if you have any questions or want to book in with our education team email or call 0151 430 9009 (option 2).
