    This was an amazing experience for my 9 year old. Following the 3 half days she did last year she saved her birthday money and I think it was well worth it. Fantastic teachers and amazing animals.
    Thank you so much from Ellie and her mum and dad

    My 8 year old daughter loves the safari park, and couldn’t wait to be old enough to join intrepid explorers! She enjoyed every minute of her 3 day adventure, especially the sea lions and making fruit kebabs for the bats! She wants to do it every year. The staff were all great too. Emily says thank you so much!

    My 7 year old son Lewis has just completed his first ever intrepid explorers. When he first arrived on the first day he cried as he was a bit unsure of what to expect, by the end of day 3 he was sad it was over! He loved it and it is such a fantastic opportunity for them! Will definitely be booking again next year!

    My daughter loves animals and absolutely loved this experience. From snakes and lizards to meerkats and giraffes, topped off by getting kissed by a sea lion. Every experience has created a lifetime of memories. The days were action packed and the sheer excitement and joy that this experience has brought is amazing. It was educational and fun, that knowledge has already been put to good use and been shared to anyone who wants to hear it! I can even name most of the animals and a run down each night, she would have moved it, if you had let her. Staff were fabulous. Thank you

    My almost 10 year old daughter had a ball. She had most of the animal experiences you can pay for a Knowsley or Chester Zoo during the 3 days she attended the Interpid Explorer. Most of the kids were younger and she felt at times it was a little too young for her. But she cant wait to go to the next age group up club next time. I thought it was really good value.

    My son absolutely loved his 3 days as an intrepid explorer! He couldn’t wait to tell me about all his adventures at the end of each day. The staff were all really great too and my son rated them very highly. We even had to visit the safari park the day after so he could share with me everything he had learnt! Thank you so much for making this such an amazing experience for my son.

    My 9 year old absolutely loved her time as an intrepid explorer. Excellent teachers; lily came home with lots of facts. She loved everything about it, especially meeting and feeding the animals. Also a great confidence boost for a little girl who can be shy in new situations. Made new friends. A great experience for an animal lover. Will be back next year.

    My son, Sam aged 10 absolutely loved the 3 day summer school of intrepid explorers. He came home with new facts every day and had lots of fun interacting with the animals. This is his 3rd time of doing the 3 days together and was thoroughly worth it.

    This is a really well run activity which enables the children to get up close and hands on with the animals in the park. It is incredibly well organised with amazing staff who work really hard and make it brilliant fun!
    It is really good value for money and Eleanor loved it. I will be recommending it and rebooking again.

    My son has just returned from the 3 days. He was so excited every morning and could wait to go. Back the following morning when I collected each day. He has had a wonderful time meeting new friends, the staff were amasing and the opportunities for feeding animals, making enrichment, mucking out the giraffes meeting the sea lions was truly amazing. He can’t wait to return next year. Thank you Knowsley.

    Tom loved his time as an Intrepid Explorer. He has asked to return next year.

    they seemed to do so much over the 3 days and the days seemed well-planned, interesting, fun and educational.

    The photographs provided at the end of the 3 days were fantastic and highlighted what amazing fun the children had.

    I cannot recommend this enough!! Fantastic experience! My daughter age 7 has just completed a week here which we bought her as birthday present and she was buzzing even after her first day! Her favourite bit (she did struggle to choose!) was getting up close with Arthur the sealion! From a parents perspective though I have to praise the team that looked after her (Ellie, Abby, sorry she couldn’t remember all the other names!) were fantastic and made her feel welcome from the off! My daughter also attended the wrap around morning care and again I was impressed… I thought she would just do some colouring/crafts for an hour until the day began (which was all good with me!) but no.. walks around the animals.. adventure in the rain to go and draw the birds.. her story’s didn’t stop!! Thanks to all the team we will definitely be booking again next year!

    My son is 9 and had a fabulous time with the Intrepid Explorers. He was able to get up close to many different animals and learn about how to care for them. Also took part in craft activities and explored conservation issues. Staff were all very friendly and enthusiastic. Will definitely book again next year.

    My daughter Charlotte is 9 years old and took part in the 5 day Intrepid Explorers programme last week. She absolutely loved it, she even cried when it finished last Friday! She found all the activities with the animals fun especially the morning with the giraffes, a fantastic experience for her! All the teachers were brilliant: kind, funny, patient and enthusiastic. I would recommend this to anyone. We will be booking it again next year for her.

    My son Oliver who is age 8 thoroughly enjoyed his second year as an Intrepid Explorer. We travel all the way from Norfolk for our children to attend this fantastic week. He particularly enjoyed cleaning out and feeding the giraffes this year and also had fun on the baboon bus. Oliver plans to return next year for more fun and invaluable opportunities.

    ‘Greatest Week Ever’ said my 8 year old. My two daughters 7 and 8 attended the Intrepid Explorers Kids Club last week. It was a great week the teachers where really enthusiastic and both of my girls felt like VIP’s of the safari park. They wore their intrepid explorers t-shirts with pride and got up and dressed and sat in the car waiting to go every day. They enjoyed the mix of arts and crafts, making food for the animals, meeting the giraffe, bats, meerkats, sea lions, playing games outside whilst learning about the animals and conservation. We used the wrap around care once and that was good too. They already can’t wait to go next year. Thank you Knowsley Safari Park

    My 8 year old grandson Kian had a fabulous time , we have been members of the safari park for 5 years and I bought him the experience for his birthday. Kian loved it and gained so much and enjoyed going into the safari park each day, he even enjoyed mucking out the giraffes ! The photo stick was a great way for him to remember the time he was an Intrepid explorer . The teachers were all patient and great with the children and I know Kian wants to do the whole week again next year so I will be eagerly booking once the dates are released . Well Done for providing a holiday club which is educational as well as fun

    Our daughter Velvet, aged 10, has attended Intrepid Explorers for the past 3 years. She has asked to go back every summer holiday and has thoroughly enjoyed the animal experiences as well as learning about conservation and endangered species. I think it is excellent value for money and would highly recommend it.

    Alexander absolutely loved being an intrepid explorer. He loved feeding the animals and interacting with them. He had lots of fun playing the games and doing the crafts. His favourite was feeding the meerkats. He also loved the drive through the safari park especially through the baboons section, he thought that was really funny! He has learned a lot about endangered animals and conservation. He enjoyed himself that much he wants to do another week next year. A big thank you to all the staff for making this such an enjoyable and educational experience for my son.

    Just wanted to say a big thank you to Ellie, Verity, Abbie and all the other staff at the safari school who looked after my 9 year old daughter, Fay. She had a fab time learning about all the animals around the park and making some amazing crafts!
    Even though the weather wasn’t the best, she still throughly enjoyed meeting the animals and even says one of her highlights of the week was mucking out the giraffes!
    She has made some lovely friends and cannot wait to attend next year and at Christmas! Thanks again for giving her an amazing experience!

    What an amazing 5 days my daughter just had with intrepid explorers! she came home every day full of smiles and stories of adventures and awesome things she had done. I asked Seren to choose her favourite moment and she just couldn’t, mucking out the giraffes, feeding the giraffes, making food for the bats, meeting the meercat, the sealions and the birds of prey, she loved every single minute! she can’t wait to return at Christmas, a huge thank you to the wonderful Ellie, Verity and Annie who made this experience so memorable and fun for all the children

    The best summer camp ever! My 2 boys (7&10) absolutely loved it. It was like joining a family! Everyone was lovely and it was a 100% positive experience. Huge thanks to Ellie, Verity and Rhian for taking such good care of my boys and teaching them lots of exciting facts about the animals. You were all fantastic!
