“Filthy Toilets and a rip off.”

Written on: 08/11/2012

Went because web site said Oct half term half price so £26 for family ticket however when we arrived were told we had to pay £53 because we had not printed off a voucher and brought it with us (no mention of this on website), so be aware. We arrived mid morning however the rides did not open until well after lunch time. Most of the kiosks did not bother to open at all, The animals looked cold and miserable and few made an appearance. On the drive through we saw a dead animal surrounded by… Read Full Review

“Depressing!”

Written on: 08/11/2012

We arrived mid morning however the rides did not open until well after lunch time. Most of the kiosks did not bother to open at all, The animals looked cold and miserable and few made an appearance. On the drive through we saw a dead animal surrounded by staff chatting and not doing much. All in all it was a disappointing experience but I must make a comment about the ladies toilets, which were in an appalling state. They were absolutely filthy. I lifted the seat and wished very much that I… Read Full Review

Written on: 19/09/2010

A fantastic day! Wasn't expecting much from other reviews but we turned up early on a rainy Sunday and had the place to ourselves - lions outside the car windows, baboons all over the place, deer nuzzling the kids' windows, rhinos 6 feet away. The restaurant was a bit dodgy - really just junk food - but the whole day was a treat, so who cares if it's organic or not? The guide book and CD were included in the ticket price too, both excellent. Admittedly half the rides were closed because it was… Read Full Review

Written on: 13/09/2010

Used to be a big fan of the safari park but recently it seems to have taken a real turn for the worse. The natural open beauty of the park seems to have gone! replaced by more lines of fencing. Not sure whats happening with animal numbers either but some of the enclosures dont look as full as they used to.
The food is way over priced and still a really poor quality. All in all i was really put off on my last visit and I think Ill opt for chester zoo next time. It was really sad to see knowsley… Read Full Review

Good points - buffalo, lions, giraffes, elephants, pretty amazing.

Bad points - too many deer, the baboons WILL damage your car, and the restaurant food selection is great... if you like junk… Read Full Review

Written on: 10/07/2010

Really good value for money, quite a lot smaller than Longleat but really clean and tidy!
The animals all looked very healthy, was great seeing the lions feed right next to the car! i love safari parks compared to zoo's which i believe do nothing for the animal, although i can respect they do a lot for the conservation of rare animals. However here i was impressed with how happy the animals looked, me and my boyfriend went but i think it would be great for all the family especially if you love… Read Full Review

“Knowsley Safari Park. Very poor value for money....”

Written on: 25/08/2009 by dinkydingo (1 review written)

Knowsley Safari Park. Very poor value for money. Having paid in excess of £40 for our party of mainly under fives and accompanying adults, I feel pretty disappointed. I would expect a day full of safari type activities, but we left after a few hours and three trips round the safari drive (deer, pea fowl, lethargic lions, more deer and antelopes, more deer, bison, more pea fowl, long horned cattle, baboons, monkeys more types of deer, emus, ostriches, rhinos, more deer, camels, more antelope… Read Full Review

Written on: 15/04/2008 by mrskermode (14 reviews written)

Really enjoyed the day out. The weather was great. Reasonably priced, nice layout for exploring on foot. You can also drive around the park if you want to have the pleasure of baboons sitting on your car. The Meerkats were brilliant and seemed relaxed. The sea lion show was really good and very funny The animals seem happy in the environment and the place was clean and tidy, with no litter. The drive around the park was great and really long. Not too many people about so it was a nice… Read Full Review

Written on: 13/06/2007 by SueandElliot (4 reviews written)

Definitely go through the baboon enclosure. You may get your car wrecked but the experience and risk are worth it. We had at least 3 baboons on our car, one of which pulled faces at us and licked the windscreen, which was gross but amusing. Then we had two of them mating on our bonnet, I kid you not, which was, err, an unusual experience. So the only real warning I'd give is to be prepared for questions from your children about natural animal activities!
We did see baboons pulling bits off… Read Full Review

Written on: 06/04/2007 by chr1sb (1 review written)

Myself, my girlfriend and son of three went on Safari today. We all had a fab time! We arrived early 09:50, which I suggest is the best time, as the safari was fairly quiet of other cars (and it's Easter bank holiday too). The view of the animals is great, and my son loved it.

I agree with the other comments about the Baboon drive at Knowsley Safari Park - this is a must, although I was a little apprehensive myself, as I didn't want my car damaged. You can go the safe route, but we went the… Read Full Review

Written on: 24/07/2007

We went to Knowsley Safari Park today. We will definitely be going again with the 2 tickets for children to go free. The pirate ship made me have butterflies, but was very good and was very high up in the sky. Cafe very expensive. A bamboon snapped our wipers and a tiny bit of aerial. They do not scratch only chew and bite. The lions passed our car and look through our windows at us. So close window at a big black gate a man or assistant will tell you to anyway. An Antelope or Gazelle popped his head into the car window and kissed my dad. Me, mam, dad and my mate will definitely go again. Or look on e-bay for free tickets for 2 kids. My dad is selling his on e-bay next week so be ready to look out!

“Knowsley Safari Park costs £10 per adult, £7 for...”

Written on: 04/07/2006 by Lockywin (2 reviews written)

Knowsley Safari Park costs £10 per adult, £7 for children 3+ (under 3's free) , and a guide book and CD costs £5.

I had a very enjoyable day out with my husband and 3 year old son. One of the downsides was the fairground rides. You pay £1.50 per ride or buy an armband for £9.00. Any parent will be aware of the hypnotic lure of these dreadful things, so steal yourself for an expensive day or one of sulking, because you won't let them go on them (as we didn't). The restaurant facilities are… Read Full Review

Written on: 22/05/2006 by joyse (12 reviews written)

We visited Knowsley Safari Park on a rainy Saturday in May and had a really enjoyable time. The entrance fee was £12 for adults, £7.00 for children and under 3's were free. You can buy a season ticket for £22 for adults and £16 for children, which gives you unlimited admittance for 12 months. If you buy this on the same day you visit, you get the entrance fee refunded. This seems like excellent value if you plan to visit more than twice.

The safari drive, according to the leaflet lasts an… Read Full Review

Written on: 17/12/2004 by Janine (1 review written)

I visited Knowsley Safari Park In 2003, unfortunaly the weather was bobbins, but I didn't let that spoil the day! When you arrive, I think you pay £6? Per person. You get a tape to listen to while traveling around the different enclosures and a map. You get to see reindeer, lions, emus - loads and loads of animals. If you don't fancy taking the car through the baboon enclosure, you can take a route around it, but stll watch from the outside. There is also daily shows with sea lions and… Read Full Review
