Help to clean and feed the animals then have a VIP tour
Join the zoo keeping team for the day at Merseyside's Knowsley Safari Park with a fun and interactive animal encounter which is a dream come true for animal lovers. This wonderful safari park is filled with many incredible beasts and creatures and the experience gives honorary zoo keepers the chance to choose which animals they most want to meet. Pick a favourite between rhinos or carnivorous predators. Start the day by meeting the animal team specialists and drive out to your chosen area. Once at the enclosure, get as involved as possible with the animals, either cleaning or feeding them and learn about their lives. The encounter includes entry to the safari park, plus a 10 percent discount off an annual park membership.
Available Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays from 1 March - 31 October (1 April - 30 September for the Rhino Encounter), excluding bank holidays.
Minimum age is 18. Disabled access is limited, please call the park to discuss any requirements upon booking.
All keeper experiences are weather dependant (some animals remain inside during inclement spells). If in any doubt, please check with the park before setting off.
Starts at 8.30am and lasts approximately two and a half hours. Knowsley Safari Park is open from 10am - 4pm.
