Opening Times

Fancy a thrilling day out taking in some of our stunning safari sights? Here at Knowsley Safari, we pride ourselves on being the friendliest and most exciting safari park in the UK.

A day out at Knowsley Safari is not to be missed; we welcome adults and children of all ages, so everyone from your pride leader to your cubs can enjoy the safari experience. Don’t forget… your littlest monkeys (under 3 years old) go completely free!

Explorers take note: this is a drive-through attraction, so you will need your own transport to enjoy our safari drive- or alternatively call on the morning of your visit to secure a place on our Baboon Bus to enjoy this portion of the experience car-free!

If you are looking to visit without a car, you can reach us by public transport – click the link below to find out more!

A visit to us is a full day out and we like you to be able to have fun, so we take the hassle out of feeding the family. While you and your family are out enjoying our safari, the restaurant team are busy preparing the menu fresh everyday.

Come try our fresh Deli menu of bespoke sandwiches, fresh salads and hot carved meats.

Don’t fancy driving your own car? Our Baboon Bus is ready and waiting to take you all the way around our 5-mile safari drive.
