Family day out this February half term

Plan your perfect family day out at Knowsley Safari this February half term. To help get the most out of your day we’ve created a handy guide so you fit everything in! One full day out across two amazing areas; the 5 mile Safari Drive and adventure away from the car in the Foot Safari.

What can you see?

With around 700 animals across 30 different species there is loads to see. Pick up a Safari Guide Book and become the expert. Here are some of our most popular animals to get you started;

Amur tiger: from some of the harshest regions of the world the largest living cat in the world looks stunning, especially in winter. You will find them on the Amur Tiger Trail in the Foot Safari.

Iberian wolf: this species is a relative of the grey wolf and they’re native to northern Spain and Portugal. You can see them in Wolf Country.

White rhino: the second largest living land mammal is the white rhino. They’re over 2 tonnes when fully grown and on everyone’s not to be missed list.

African lion: the only truly social of the big cats, lions live in a family group called a pride. You can see them as you drive through the safari drive. Windows up and doors locked!

So there’s four species to get you started but there are many more to discover. Download the app for an audio guide to accompany the guide book.

What to explore?

The Foot Safari is an area for you and your family to explore: animals, rides, food and play. Walk the woods at wolf country, spot the stripes in the Amur tiger trail. For your little thrill seekers, we have a selection of rides for them to enjoy.

The Oasis restaurant is open every day serving hot food, deli sandwiches, freshly made wraps, hot and cold refreshments snacks and food to go. Fuelling the fun!

Get the most out of your visit:

Winter is a beautiful time to visit as the safari woodland surroundings are a striking backdrop. The animals have access to the safari drive whatever the weather and we allow them to come and go as they please. It’s a great day out whatever the season but you can get more out of a winter visit by following these tips;

  1. Arrive early; there are no lights on the safari drive, so shorter days means we need to close before it gets dark. Make the most of your visit and arrive early, the safari drive opens at 10am for February half term. This is also the best time to see some of the animals that have heated houses like rhino as they are out in the morning sun. It’s also a beautiful time of day to get photos.
  2. Wrap up warm; while the safari drive means you’re in the comfort of your own car, don’t forget your coat, boots, gloves, hat and scarf for the foot safari. Makes a winter day out much more enjoyable when you’re snug.
  3. Pick up a guidebook when you buy your tickets and you’ll have a great souvenir from your day. Not only that, but with the free AR Safari app on your device you can bring the safari to life in your very own home as the guidebook has augmented reality technology. Tiger in your lounge anyone?
  4. Download the free safari guide app to access audio clips and a map showing you where you are on safari.
  5. Hop on the baboon bus. For just £6 per person you can explore the whole of the safari drive from the comfort of our safari bus! Look out for the baboons climbing up to the windows!
