A trip to the park is a must to enjoy the best outdoor time with your family and friends. Hidden behind a very traditional scene of Britishness with woodland, old stone walls and fields, this special place is home to over 500 majestic creatures including lions, tigers, elephants, meerkats, giraffes and rhinos. A drive through lion enclosure is a real highlight of the safari drive while for some baboons, which are fans of exploring the vehicles that enter their enclosure. Whether you get up close on the Baboon Bus or take the car-friendly route, there is plenty of great monkey madness; the boisterous baboons that have become Knowsley’s trademark.
