Big cats are some of the most majestic animals on the planet, and this photography experience is the perfect opportunity to bring a camera, capture their magnificence and create lasting images. Begin with a welcome tea or coffee and an introductory briefing from the hosts, who outline how to get the best from the day and camera. Knowsley Safari Park is situated between Liverpool and Manchester and has a fantastic range of species in over 400 acres of parkland. During the workshop focus on the Carnivore section that includes an amazing 14 strong African lion pride, amur tigers and iberian wolves. Enjoy special VIP access to the animals to ensure the best chance for pictures, with the help of the keepers, off road Land Rovers and special access.
