Knowsley Safari claims accolade after recognition from millions of traveller reviews and opinions
Knowsley Safari has been named the highest rated Safari Park in the UK in Trip Advisor’s Travellers’ ChoiceTM awards for Zoos and Aquariums.
The peoples accolade follows an ongoing programme of investment in the park’s 550 acres and careful husbandry of the 700 wild animals in their care.
Rachel Scott, Head of Marketing for Knowsley Safari comments: "To be considered the best safari park in the UK by the Great British public is an incredible honour.
“We are continuously working on ways to enrich our visitor experience with additions such as our new “Vulture Breakfast” and our upcoming Honeybee Centre we offer visitors a truly wild experience every time they visit.
“We’re seeing a staggering increase in our membership numbers (+97% YOY), as people come back to visit us many times throughout the year. Where else can you come face to face with a lion, brave a walk through a bat cave and learn bushcraft skills in the woodland?”
"We work hard at Knowsley Safari to make sure that our visitors leave feeling like they really experienced a taste of safari adventure. They have great stories to tell their friends when they leave, but also an understanding of the important conservation work we undertake to protect the many species in our care.”
Trip Advisor Spokesperson James Kay added: “These awards are based on the millions of reviews and opinions written by our global community of travellers, so if you’re looking for some inspiration for a great family day out, the UK winners are just the thing to add to your summer holidays hit list.”
Following a record breaking start to the year, seeing their highest February footfall since records began and with plans to continue their work in conservation, the award is another addition to what is proving to be a bumper year at the Safari.
